a little kindness goes a long way

I almost didn’t write tonight. It’s been a long day and I’m exhausted. Bad weather will do that to a person. That being said, here I am. For once I’ve got a good story to share.

Today in my drive thru I got to experience one of humanities finer moments. Hopefully one of millions,police-officer-t9754 but I couldn’t swear to it. This one time showed the kind(ish) heart of two… no, three people. The first being our store owners. It is our policy that the sheriff’s department doesn’t pay for their food. Oddly enough, this courtesy does not extend to city police. The second person would be the guy driving in front of the sheriff. He wanted to pay for the officer’s meal. He actually seemed disappointed that he wouldn’t be able to do this kindness to the officer, but he was content that the officer didn’t have to pay anyway.

Now this next part will really get you guys that believe all cops are stuck up pricks. The officer was evidently new to the area and was surprised that he didn’t have to pay. He insisted upon paying for the car behind him. Now I wish I could say that the chain continued from there, but if any sort of extra kindness came from his act, it didn’t happen in my drive thru.

Kudos to all the good cops out there like these two!
