Pizza and desert for a stressed out Mom and her 4 kids


Pizza and desert for a stressed out Mom and her 4 kids

I was at a local pizza shop tonight, picking up my favorite guilty pleasure pizza, when a mom and her 4 kids came in. I could tell by the look on her face that this lady needed a little "slice" (See what I did there?) of respite… just a pizza winged angel to help her out.

So she orders her meal, 2 med pizzas, 2 toppings each. She asks about drinks (Coke/Pepsi) but turns it down and gets waters after hearing the price.

Meanwhile, I am sitting to the side waiting for my ' za to be ready, and after she turns the corner to the seating area with her kids, I immediately ask for the manager. I ask them to cancel that credit card transaction and put it all on my tab, with 5 drinks and cookies and brownies (the two deserts they have) all on my tab.

The lady at the counter was so moved she started to tear up, saying she had never seen such a selfless act in all her years. The only thing I had to say was "Pay it forward. Someone else is always in greater need than where you are today."

Live to make those around you better, and always strive to be a better person than you deserve to be
