Just When You Think You’re Losing Faith in Humanity

I saw this little story the other day on casualcynic that I thought was an inspiring and heartwarming tale which will reaffirm your belief that there are still good things happening in the world. While I understand that there are many acts of kindness done to others every day, it’s not every day that you hear about stories of compassion and kindness. It is my desire that after reading today’s story, you will be encouraged.

By the way, if you have any good stories like this one and would like to share it with others, please let me know or send me your story and I will post it!!

Have an awesome day and I hope you enjoy the following story which was written by the daughter of the person involved…

“So, my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about 15 minutes ago, this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this, she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florenxe, this and that, and she said that she had never been there. She has eight years of art education and she is still just working a waitress job. It’s all of sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced six years ago and she has never ever had a real job. She had just been stuck in a small town where she’s not even from.

This man, who we have never seen before, tipped her $1,000 for a trip to Italy. He had just walked out and never said another word.

You know, just when you begin to lose faith in humanity!”
