Day 9: Drive-thru Kindness
So yesterday I gave out a free pizza to a complete stranger. I really enjoyed doing something kind for a person I didn't know because it is so unexpected by them. It made me feel really good because I could see the genuine gratitude that this person had for this kind act.
Today, I wanted to keep the complete stranger theme going. I went through a drive-thru at lunch today and decided to pay for the person's food in the car behind me. This was a drive-thru that had two windows; one to pay at and the next to get the food. When I was at the second window I looked in my rear-view mirror and I could have sworn the lady was nearly half out her car window trying to get my attention by waiving at me. She had a huge smile on her face while thanking me with excessive waiving. Again, this made me feel really good to see something so small, relatively speaking, make someone so happy. I hope it made her day. I know it made mine.
