I had a totally different ‘Thought for Thursday’ that I was going to post today. However, after reading the story below, I decided to change the topic. Today’s ‘Thought for Thursday’ is DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE ANONYMOUSLY. Tomorrow is payday for most. You most likely can’t pay the tab for an entire restaurant, but, how about ordering lunch anonymously for a co-worker and having it delivered? Or, what about the next time you go to the movies, or any store, discreetly putting $10 towards the next patron’s purchase? [it might be better to do it anonymously if you skip a patron/customer].
Your anonymous gesture doesn’t require money. You can leave a flower, poem, nice ‘computer printed’ note, etc. on someone’s desk. Just do something to put a smile on someone’s face, with no expectation of a ‘Thank You’. 🙂
Mystery Customer Covers the Bill for Every Customer at Denny’s
by Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo News
An anonymous customer at a Denny’s restaurant decided to voluntarily pay for the meals of all her fellow diners.
“People thought we were joking. She didn’t want anybody to know she paid and then she left,” Carol Kronberger, a waitress at a location near Sacramento, Calif., told KCRA.
“It just put a smile on everyone’s faces because we got to go to each individual table and tell them that some young lady just paid for all their meals.”
Manager Tom Klepac says the total bill was about $200 and that the Denny’s staff agreed to keep the customer’s identity a secret, only noting that she was a young woman.
Klepac said the unexpected free meal was a deserved treat for his customers, most of whom are regulars. And he hopes they’ll share some of that spontaneous goodwill.
“I’m hoping they’ll all pass it on to people that need help too,” Klepac said.
