Paying it Forward in a Small, Simple Way in a Red Truck

One of our users on Cumming Patch posted the following "Thank You" to an anonymous person in a red truck who paid for lunch.


I remember some years ago while heading to work at the CNN Center, as I made my usual stop at the Georgia 400 toll booth to pay my $.50, a nice thing happened to me.

As I waited for my turn to pay the attendant, the person in the car in front of me paid my toll booth fee. It totally made my day! Just a simple gesture of giving back put a smile on my face and made me want to pay it forward. As I headed home later that day, I did the same thing for the person in the car behind me.

How crazy is that?

A simple act of kindness to make a stranger, friend, family member, animal or all of the above happy, in my opinion, it's a great thing to do.

As I was reading the "Announcements" posted on Cumming Patch I found this note and wanted to share it with you.

I would like to thank the driver of the red truck that paid for me and my two son's lunch this past Wednesday. I don't know who you are and it was a complete surprise, but it was kind of you to pay for our food as we were in the drive thru line at the McDonald's in Cumming.

Thank you for being so kind.

Susan, Trey and Michael.
