We paid for someone's meal
We were at the Golden Corral, and my boyfriend and I saw a fully dressed Marine with his girlfriend. They were at the table in front of us. We instructed the waiter to put their bill with ours. As they were about to pay their bill and leave the waiter said, “Your bill has been paid for.” The girlfriend said, “Oh my gosh. Who would pay for us?”
We went up to them and said, “To thank your boyfriend for his service we paid for your meal.”
They introduced themselves and we had some small talk. They thanked us again and we split. We felt very happy and felt we had done the right thing. The girlfriend (for privacy reasons we will not reveal the names) kept thanking us and saying, “Oh my god.”
We are glad we did this and think you should do it too.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SERVED IN THE NAVY OR MILITARY. We appreciate your service.
