I heard a great story today. This is the kind of thing I only hear about in passed around emails, but I'm never sure how true or accurate the stories are. This one I heard from someone who was there and witnessed it.
Last night at a local Italian restaurant, there was a group of soldiers just back from Iraq. They were celebrating their return home with a lot of food and a lot of beer. Their tab ran well over $300. When they were ready to pay their bill, they were informed that someone from a neighboring table had already paid their entire tab, including the tip, as a thank you for what they had done in Iraq. They wanted to thank the person, but the generous soul had already left. Nobody knows who he is, except him.
I thought that was a wonderfully generous thing to do. I'm glad to know that people like this do still exist.
