Take Me Away

"The human world...it's a mess."

(I am working the register over Christmas.)
Me:“Find everything today?”
Customer:“Yup.”
(Note:she is silent through the transaction, which includes a gift card.)
Me:“How much would you like on this?”
Customer:“Oh, sorry. Can I have $150?”
Me:“No problem.”
Customer:*after paying* “Can you do me a favor?” *she hands me the gift card* “The next customer you see that you think could use this, could you give it to them?”
Me:*stunned* “…Of course!”
(After a minute another customer comes up, a visibly upset young woman.)
Me:“Hi! How are you?”
Customer #2:“I’m okay, thanks.”
(Clearly she is not ok, but she is trying very hard to be pleasant. She is getting very basic items:milk, bread, eggs, etc. Nothing very festive.)
Me:“So your total comes out to $0.00.”
Customer:“What?”
Me:“The person before you gave me a $150 gift card to use for the next person I thought could use it. You look like you’re having a rough day, so here are your groceries, and there’s about $130 left on this card.”
(The customer just started crying. Once she could, she thanked me about 100 times. Made my whole Christmas season.)
