Now that is some Karma, that is paying it forward!

A week ago I was at Subway buying lunch for everyone at work.  There were a few kids there getting lunch as well.  They stood in line waiting behind me as I placed my order and paid.  When I was finished I was about to leave but once I got to the door I had a feeling I needed to wait.  So I did.  And when the three kids got the counter,  they realized they didn't have enough money to pay for their lunch.  Right then I was very glad that I had waited.  I walked back to the counter, paid the difference for them and left with a smile.  


Yesterday,  I was at subway buying lunch for everyone at work.  I stood in line, placed my order, gathered everything up and handed the cashier my Subway card.  She took it and then told me the total.  I count out the cash I had,  dug through my pockets and wallet and came up short by a few dollars.  I was about to begin putting things back so I would have enough for every one else's lunch when a man stepped out of line behind me,  walked to the counter and asked the cashier how short I was.  She told him and he gave her the remaining few dollars I didn't have.  

THAT is karma.  The good kind. That is paying it forward.   I couldn't help but smile as I left.
