Man walks into restaurant and pays R35k for everyone’s meals
In similar inspirational news, Briefly News previously reported that a man blew a restaurant owner away with a rare act of kindness.
Understanding Compassion reports that the man had shown up at a restaurant in Utah, United States and sat alone for two hours.
The man identified as Briggs then went on to pay for the meal of the 7 families that patronised the restaurant that day.
He spent over $2,500 (R35 000).
The restaurant owner whose identity wasn't given said that the man's gesture helped one of the waitresses who was homeless in getting a roof over her head.
The kind man reveals why he showed such kindness
Understanding Compassion narrated that when asked why he showed the kind gesture, the man said:
“I grew up with a single mother of six. We were poor and homeless a lot.
“I watched and suffered for years as I watched her work her hands to the bone to give us a good life. She raised us to be kind and help others. Many years down the road, I was facing prison and getting in trouble. It ended up causing me to lose my family because I was a really terrible person.”
Things eventually got better for him as he set up his own business.
“Now I’ve been helping others as I was raised to do.
“Now it’s time to pay it back.”
