You Never Know What A Person Is Going Through
I was just in line at the gas station to get some gas minding my own business, a young lady in front of me is taking forever. I overheard the cashier tell her that both of the cards were declined, the young lady said there must be something wrong with the machine. She turned around to walk away. I had a smile on my face.
She said to me, “Why are you f**king smiling!
I said to her, “Watch your mouth, I always smile and you should too.”
I looked at the cashier and said, ‘What pump number is she on.’
Cashier, ‘it was pump number two.’The cashier asked, ‘why?’
I said, ‘can I put $20 on pump number two for her?’
Cashier: ‘are you serious she was very rude to you.’
There was another black guy behind me who said go ahead and fill it up. We both went half on her gas. When we walked outside to tell her about the gas this lady apologized so many times crying her eyes out. She went inside her truck to show us her new hire paperwork. She started work on Monday so she needed gas for the week until she gets paid. Lord thank you for reminding me of all the reasons why I should keep a smile on my face. That goes to show you we never know what a person is going through and we all have a purpose on this earth!
