Valentine's Day chocolates

I was in a long line to buy some chocolates on Valentine’s Day. After quite a wait to be third in line, I hear the cashier refusing a young woman’s credit card (the register was clearly marked cash only).
I stepped up and quickly paid for both her small bag of candy and the chocolates for my husband. As we stepped aside, the person that was between us let everyone know they thought I had paid just to skip them in line!
The young woman wanted to reimburse me, but I refused her offer to go to the ATM to get cash to pay me for the Valentine’s Day gift to her boyfriend. The young woman said no one from where she lived would ever have offered to pay and thanked me.
