Just when you think there's not anymore good people out there.
After I left work today (I live about 30 miles from my workplace). I stopped to get gas. My card was declined.

Figured, maybe something wrong with the CC reader at the pump, so I went inside the gas station and asked for 50 on pump 11.

Guy runs my Debit card and it was declined. He tries 3 more times. So I check my banking app and see I have more than enough funds. I even show him my phone screen.

Then he tells me, try to run your debit card as credit, maybe that will work. We try that twice. Declined.

I say hey, there's a line of people behind me waiting now, take care of them. I'll try to call my bank.

Try to call the bank, the number says we have a huge call volume right now, please use our 24/7 online support via email which you can access through the app. Then hangs up on me.

I try that, send an email, and it gets kicked back saying

550 5.2.1 The user you are trying to contact is receiving mail at a rate that prevents additional messages from being delivered.


So I'm fucked. I was on empty. 30 miles away from home with a gas guzzler car. No way to get home.


I walk outside, sit in my car, try to call the bank again. Get hung up on again. It's 90 degrees outside.


Would you believe the guy who was standing behind me in line. Waiting patiently while the clerk tried to help me, running my card multiple times...

He walks up to my driver side window at the pump. Says hey bud. You seem like a good guy. I've been in need before. Take this and get some gas (tries to hand me 40 bucks).

I said thank you sir, but I have money and I couldn't do that. He tosses it in my car window. He was like a construction worker in a beat up pickup truck.

I try to give it back, he keeps walking. I say at least give me your email or phone number, so I can PayPal or Venmo you back.

He says to me. Pay it forward.

What a solid Human being. A perfect stranger. Does something like that without me even asking anything. Renewed my faith in humanity.


I plan to pay it forward to a wonderful waitress at a restaurant I go to for breakfast once in a while. She's a elderly woman who should be retired by now, but has to still work to make ends meet. I'm going to give her a 60 tip and tell her this story.

I'm no Rockefeller or anything but I have bailed a couple of people out of a tight spot before. No strings attached.

My wife don't understand and has little trust or sympathy for people. I believe you should give free heartedly cause you never know who you might be giving to.

It was probably an angel.

thanks for sharing this, op.
we need more news like this, especially around here where we're feed constant doom and gloom.

we need more to hear about these stories so that it will hopefully spur more people to do good, and pay things forward.

also, stories like these have been happening more and more, and will hopefully show the masses to resist cashless society. cheers, op. 5*s and some green for you.

A few weeks ago I was short a £1 for a pack of cigs and a guy behind me offered to pay it and even that blew my mind.

Pay it Forward may have been an average movie, but the concept is terrific. I've had someone pay it forward once for me when my car broke down in the middle of nowhere. He towed it to the local mechanic for free just because I had a college team sticker on my car that he liked.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
