Total Stranger Picks Up Dinner Tab for Family, Leaves Note of Encouragement

Ashley England

There’s an old movie quote that reads, “I’ve always depended on the kindness of strangers.” Well, there’s a family in North Carolina that could alter that to, “Sometimes, you can COUNT on the kindness of strangers.”

I was discussing the picture of this dinner tab–which is going viral–with our sales manager and we both agreed that this is the kind of thing you don’t hear near enough about amid all the horrible news that floods cyberspace and the airwaves.

Recently, Ashley England went to dinner with her family, including her 8-year-old son Riley. Riley, who doesn’t speak and suffers from epilepsy–he’s endured multiple brain surgeries–began to get a little rowdy during dinner.

Later, the waitress, who was obviously very emotional about something–it was clear she’d been crying–came to Ashley’s table and presented her a guest check with that note on it.

Ashley, naturally, would like to thank this patron, but he paid her check AND left the note anonymously.

Bad news makes the headlines, but it’s good and important to know there are people like this out there.
