okay so at work this little kid wanted a refill but he was like 10 cents short and i had already refilled his drink and i was so fucking scared i would have to dump his refill out in front of him. but this lady who came up to get a pizza from my coworker was like, “are you short?? here, let me get it” and she ended up paying for his refill and he was so grateful and was like, “do you want the money i have to repay you…?” and she just said, “as long as you pay it forward to someone else when you can, i don’t need anything from you” and she was such a nice lady and though she may not have inspired him, she definitely inspired me
