Hat Did Not Go Unnoticed

Posted on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 at 2:41 PM

Last Tuesday (July 12th) my ex took the kids to see the new Transformers movie in Sackville. With time to kill before the show, my boys decided to run into a sporting goods store. While there the younger of the two (11 yrs) decided he wanted to purchase a ballcap. However, when the cashier rang it through, he found out he did not have enough money on his debit card. The man standing behind him in line BOUGHT him the hat!

I just wanted to give a public shout out and THANK YOU to that gentleman. I have no idea who you were, and most likely will never know, but in case you see this, I wanted you to know that his mother (me) was SHOCKED that you did that. Pleasantly so, of course. You made a little boy VERY happy that day. Although, had I been there... I wouldn't have let you.

Thank you, sir. I appreciate your kindness towards my son. And he thanks you for the hat. —Hat Mom
