“I didn’t think of letting him go first because he got there before me,” she wrote in a post describing the friendly exchange.
What happened next blew her away.
“He hung out at the front after being served and when my groceries were scanned, he got up and paid them,” she said, rattling.
The man told her that he was grateful that she had been nice to him and wanted to express it.
“What he did for me was much more fun than what I did for him, I couldn’t believe it,” she said.
The woman posted the story on a popular Facebook page aimed at Aldi fans.
It quickly went viral in the group and thousands of people responded to the post.
“So great to see that they are still nice people in this world, you both deserve credit for your kindness,” said one woman.
So nice to read something positive. Nice people do exist, said another.
Others shared their own heartwarming stories, claiming that “kindness feeds kindness.”
“Someone did the same for me in line at a gas station, pay for gas once, I’ll never forget and always pay in advance if I can,” said one woman.
Others called for more people to pay it forward and create a “kindness pandemic.”
Some insisted that people “moving forward” in line is just good manners and should be considered a quintessential thing.
