For Angie Rose it was just another day at the grocery store. But when she noticed the cashier giving the young couple ahead of her a hard time, she had a “strong feeling” she was meant to be in that line at that moment.
This is what she wrote on Facebook, which has been shared nearly 100,000 times…
“After paying for my groceries today I was preparing to walk away and I see the cashier rolling her eyes and sucking her teeth as a young lady and young man, (who obviously didn’t have a lot of money) were putting up their groceries, I had a really strong feeling that I was suppose to stay close to these youngsters, Well I stayed and watched as the cashier slammed through their things, the final total was $123.40.
The young girl looked nervous but scanned her food stamp card and again the cashier rolled her eyes and smirked when it came back that the balance was only $95.30 on the card and she took great pleasure in repeating this, so I stepped up and said ‘First of all, you need to lower your voice, and second, I’m gonna help them out and don’t you roll your eyes at me I’m not a young girl.’ She didn’t say a word. I took out my coupons and stood there very slowly went through all 3 of my coupon carriers, after finding what I could for these young people I hand them to the cashier then gave her my E-card so they got double the coupons and it really seemed to piss the cashier off, the young lady and young man were so excited because they not only had enough but the $123.40 went down to $68.22. It’s been a very long time since I’ve had young people jumping on me so happy and excited.
After they packed up and we were walking away I looked at the cashier and said ‘Why?’ She looked like she was gonna cry but said nothing! People, What does it take to change the very Essence of Ignorance? Why is it easier for some to Hate or Belittle than to Love and Encourage? What did it cost me to help these young people, NOTHING but some coupons that I can just print up more.
Just Paying It Forward!!”
Old Man Is Told His Life Was Easy As There Was No Drug Problem When He Grew Up. His Reply Is The Best Thing Ever.
The other day, a woman standing next to me at a store in our small town read that a meth lab had been found in an old farm house in the adjoining county, and she asked me a rhetorical question…
Why didn’t we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?
I told her I did have a drug problem when I was a kid growing up.
I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.
I was also drug upstairs to my room or the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher. Or if I didn’t put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.
I was drug to the kitchen sink if I uttered a profane four letter word or smoked a cigarette (I do know what soap tastes like).
I was drug out to pull weeds in mom’s garden and flower beds and to clear cockleburs out of dad’s fields.
I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline or chop some fire wood, and if my mother had ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have drug me back to the wood shed.
Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack or heroin, and if today’s children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place to live today.
This may be one of the funniest things I’ve read in a while, I had to share it. Enjoy!
She was mad that I was recording her instead of opening the door.
