My daughter, 25 at the time, took me to my favorite diner for lunch. There was a man, wearing an old army jacket, that obviously had some mental disabilities as well as financial problems. The waitresses were extremely discourteous and insisted the man show them his money before they would take his order...very publicly.
When we were in line, checking out, them old man was in front us of, paying his bill. My daughter reached out and paid his bill, while chastising the waitresses. She also gave our tip to the man and thanked him for being so courteous during his harassment. I was so proud I cried right there in the restaurant. I always told the kids that "doing the right thing" wasn't easily definable, but they'd know it when they saw it....
