Mo'nique Travis is a caregiver who works with the elderly. She recently shared the random act of kindness she experienced after working a seven-day shift. Mo'nique says that on her way home from her shift, she was starving but only had R25.
She decided to stop at a nearby Wimpy for breakfast and hike home. The waiter approached her for her order and Mo'nique ordered a breakfast special with a glass of water. While waiting for her meal, a couple sitting near her asked her about the small meal she ordered.
Mo'nique was still in uniform and told them she had worked a full seven days. The lady then called the waiter over and ordered a full breakfast for Mo'nique, that she paid for.
Read the conclusion of Mo'nique's post shared to Facebook's #ImStaying group below:
"The lady reply and said no no, she called the waiter back and said give this nurse a full house breakfast, I will pay.
"I'm like, are you sure? "Yes," the lady replied. This is from me to say thank you for taking care of other people while risk yours. I was just shocked, the treat was special... When last did I have bacon, eggs, worsies, toast and nice coffee. I felt like a rich person.
"I am so thankful to that couple for making my morning, and I got home safely. #ImStaying."
