Grocery store saviour

Posted on Mon, Oct 15, 2012 at 3:17 PM

It was a Saturday evening, I was at the check out doing the math in my head if I could afford the groceries. I held my breath and thought I allowed enough but the message said declined. So I said I will just use a credit card, I was embarrassed and tried, incorrect PIN so I said well take something away and let me try again. Declined, I was by this point red in the face but a stranger offered to pay and said it was his good turn. It was $24.78 but to me it could have been a million, thank you to that stranger in the line. I will do a good turn for someone soon. —Broke in Line
