Random act of kindness

Betty Rolfe, Sunningdale

In this world, which for me recently seems so violent, cruel and dark, I would like to shed some light. I am an old age pensioner.

In the queue at Pick n Pay, West Coast Village on Friday December 15, I fumbled for my purse at the cashier to pay for my small grocery purchase.

The cashier informed me that the amount due had been settled by the gentleman behind me.

Not only did this stranger pay for my purchase, he also put what turned out to be a R200 note in my shopping basket. Somewhat overwhelmed, I stammered a question and a thank you for his random act of kindness.

His reply was just to say that he too was blessed, and off he went.

Thank you, kind sir, I will pay it forward.
