I was on the phone with my dad while I was standing in line at a McDonald's, getting my sister some lunch. On the phone I was asking my dad to borrow ten dollars because I had plans to take the train later that day, as I didn't get my paycheck for a few days. I was broke.
While I was explaining my situation to him an old woman turned around and stuck her arm out to me, with ten dollars in her hand. I told my dad I would call him back and when I hung up the phone I told her I was sorry but I could not accept her money. She proceed to give me the money, so strongly that I reluctantly accepted. I told her thank you many times and she smiled and said she has so many grandchildren and is used to it. I then told her about my new job and wished her happy holidays. I thought it was an amazing gesture of her and made me feel incredibly happy that there are still good souls out in the world today. I hope she and her family are very blessed.
