Pay it Forward

There are some good people in this world ya'll, and I just happened to experience it.

There is a local news station that gives out 300 cash to a deserving person. Today's deserving person happened to work for my company so at around noon the news crews showed up ready to surprise her. This girl has had an unbelievably tough year. Her husband was killed in a car accident right after finding out she was pregnant with their first child and I believe her daughter has had some health issues since being born.

It was so wonderful to see her face when they gave her the money. She was so humble and at such a loss for words that there probably wasn't a dry eye in the entire lobby.

This is where the story gets better (even though it's already pretty awesome). A customer comes in during all of the commotion and is wondering what is going on. So while I am helping him with his business I am also explaining about my co-worker and how wonderfully deserving she is of this attention. At the end, he hands me a one hundred dollar bill and tells me he would like to donate it to her as well. Melt. My. Heart.

I know that working in customer service can be tough but today reminded me that there are good people out there. People that generally want to help others without recognition for themselves. I'm glad I witnessed that today.
