  • First act of random kindness - RE: CHALLENGE for 2020

    Just a short story to share. I eat lunch at a small Chinese place in Lake Mary. Iíve been known to buy a meal for a first responder occasionally, insisting that the waitress say nothing about who paid the tab. On the 23rd I tried to do this for a Seminole county sheriff deputy with a bunch of stripes on his left forearm. As we both ate our meals we spoke back and forth some, but I tried to not be a pest and let him enjoy his meal. He finished first and headed for the cashier, I looked at her and shook my head no. He got a bill out of his pocket, had a few words with the girls. They tried to explain that his bill was already paid, but he shook his head no and insisted on buying my lunch. I didnít know how to react. We wished each other Merry Christmas and parted ways. Iíve never had to fight with someone to buy his meal, but he beat me to the punch. Iíll see him again, as Iíve seen him before and we frequent this place, maybe next time.

      Well Tim- As the saying goes "You can lead the Force to waiter but he doesn't have to take the bling!!
      Nice gesture though, did he still write you up for handicap spot you realized you were parked in??

      As the father and uncle of 2 first responders let me say thank you. Most days do not give them a reason to smile. Gestures such as this provides a reason to smile and know that some people appreciate what they do. Thanks for the support!
