A man eating in a Boston restaurant recently overheard a mother and daughter burst into tears when they got some bad news on their phone. He decided to help by paying for their meal, and asked the waiter to bring him their check and asked him not to tell. After he combined the two bills, the waiter said, “I waited until the guy left and told the Ladies he had taken care of their check, and that he said best wishes, which was what he said to do on the note he wrote me on his second bill.” He added, “The mother cried even harder. I almost lost it.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
