Thank you to man who paid for groceries

A few days ago I stood in line to pay for some groceries I picked up.

A few days ago I stood in line to pay for some groceries I picked up.

A gentleman ahead of me said, “I will pay for your groceries as an early Xmas present!”

Not realizing he meant it, I joked about, “would be nice. Maybe the checkout lady would be that kind.”

When I wanted to pay for my groceries she said it is paid already by the gentleman before you. I was stunned. She could not give me his name. So to you, sire, thank you so much and also do have a blessed Christmas full of surprises too!
