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.
