I was in the check out line at the grocery store and there was a young lady in front of me. Her shirt indicated that she worked at that store and she held a store gift card in her hand. She wasn't buying much: some fruit, a drink, and a snack. When she swiped her card, she only had $1.74 on it. She didn't have money to buy her food. She looked so tired. She looked like she could use a break in life. I told the cashier to put her groceries on my tab. The young lady was so grateful, she offered to pay me back. I told her "no, happy birthday and merry christmas" (even though it was February). The cashier chimed in, "And congratulations because she's pregnant." Well there you go.
