Paying Down the Bill

I am a server at a local Red Lobster restaurant. Yesterday a woman approached me to pay $10 toward the meal of a couple I was serving. She wanted to remain anonymous, but she felt compassion because she could see that they were older and a little frail. She called this a random act of kindness. Later, when I brought the bill to the table, I explained about the $10 off and more about the anonymous woman who paid it. The woman received it with a smile and said, “ I really needed that today.” Personally, I never thought of paying a portion of a meal. I always thought I should pay for the whole meal. This example helped me to see a little can do just as much good.
