I decided to grab a quick salad at McDonalds yesterday afternoon. I pulled up to the sign, ordered my chicken bacon ranch salad and a water and pulled around to the first window.
I was behind a metallic grey/brown Chevy Tahoe and it seemed to take her a while to pay. I was in no hurry, so I didn't think anything of it. (I was just chilling to music.) I pulled forward to pay and handed the man my debit card.
"You don't have to pay!" said the man.
"You don't have to pay, the lady in front of you bought your meal."
"You are joking, right?"
"No, she comes in often and pays for the person behind her."
Up until then, I was not having a good day. In this one quick moment, my spirits were lifted. I felt a rush of excitment and shock flow through me. I was curious as to who this lady was. I pulled forward and stuck my head out the window and waived at her. She looked back through her side mirror and I shouted.
"You are welcome!" she replied.
She took her food from the person in the window and drove off. I never got her name or knew who she was. She was a person who did random acts of kindness and spread her joy and warmpth to the person in the vehicle behind her.
All that went through my mind the rest of the day was, "That was too cool! I have to do that myself."
Not only is Otterocity about bringing joy to your life. It is about giving to others without the expectation of return. This lady showed me that she truly has Otterocty!
Thank you Tahoe lady!
Keep showing your Otteroticy!
