Have you ever gone shopping for something you absolutely need only to be told that your card has been denied by the cashier? So you try to swipe the card again (or a third time), believing that it would go through and no one will notice. This is when you start getting funny looks and conversations about how you can’t afford to pay for your purchases. You inform the cashier that you have cash in the bank, thus there must be an error. Then regrettably, you walk out of the store empty-handed and embarrassed.
After such humiliation, some people might never put a foot in a shop again, but one pawnshop customer wasn’t willing to allow a denied card to keep him from attaining what he needed. When the man’s card was denied, he left the store ashamed, but he returned 15 minutes later, this time with a c-op. ‘Is there any issue, officer?’ inquired the cashier. and the officer responded in a way they’d never forget.
The pawnshop where Alicia Danielle works don’t appear like much, but it’s full of knickknacks that someone would ultimately buy, such as a set of dumbbells or stereo speakers. One man even came upon a pair of shoes he loved! It wasn’t meant to be, unfortunately. “So this man walks in to buy a pair of shoes because his are absolutely coming off,” Alicia said on social media. Anyway, his card didn’t work, so he walked a-way.”
Even though he knew the money wasn’t there, the man was presumably hoping the bank would allow the transaction to go through. It never hurts to give it a go! Miracles do happen from time to time. Unfortunately, the cosmos was not on his side in this unfortunate man’s situation at least not at the time! The only item he went out with that day was the same torn pair of sneakers he came in with.
This guy, on the other hand, was not going to let anything stand in the way of his desire for those shoes. The staff witnessed the same person return a few moments after he exited, but this time he was accompanied by the law! The interested staff inquired whether there was an issue with the officer who came unexpectedly to their doorway. “The officer says, ‘No problem,’ but if the shoes are still available, I’d want to purchase them.” As a result, he and my coworker divide the expense of the shoes.”
Alicia stated on social media there was no one in the shop at the time, and that neither the officer nor her coworker did this with the aim of receiving social media praise for their charity. It was a real act of compassion done just for the purpose of being nice. Alicia was compelled to tell her experience because she believes the society we live in these days is filled with so much hatred, distrust, and intolerance. Good actions don’t always get the recognition they deserve, and they occur on a daily basis. Even tiny acts of kindness may go a long way toward reviving our global spirit!
