  •  One of the great regrets of my life (14+ / 0-)

    occurred a few years ago. I was in line in the grocery store, and a woman in front of me was paying mostly with food stamps. She was short a couple of bucks or so on the rest of her purchases, and she stood there, with her young daughter, deciding which items to put back.

    For some reason, I had a brain fart, and it didn't occur to me until after she had left that I could easily pay the couple of bucks for her. Once I got outside, I looked for her, but she was gone. I felt like such a shit.

    I've thought about that incident a lot, and I know that faced with similar circumstances again I would be alert enough to respond more humanly. I'm glad you were quicker on the uptake than I was.
