Thank you to Lady in Costco

I’d like to say a big thank you to the kind hearted lady in Costco Tuesday afternoon. My husband was buying fruit for our children when his debit card was declined. Since Costco doesn’t take credit cards he went to the atm to try and pull out cash but was declined as well.

He was going to leave when a woman came up to him and gave him money to pay for the food. He tried saying no thank you, we’ll manage but she insisted and we were able to buy the food. It brought tears to my eyes when I heard this.

We’ve always managed to get by but funds are really tight right now and this little gesture helped out a lot. We will definitely pay it forward when our financial situation is better!

  1. This is something I did the other day in the mall… these younger kids were at ardenes buying stuff and when they went to cash out were short quite a bit… they looked really hurt, as they were trying to buy stuff to dress up…. I told them to keep their money and I paid for it… they were super respectful and thanked me numerous times… I definitely would lend a hand when I can to someone in need… Thank you to other kind people who care! It is refreshing!

    maybe he went shopping and didn’t realize he didn’t have enough in his account and that why it was declined….if you are even a penny off it will get declined……doesn’t mean they went shopping with no money lol it means that they didn’t have enough in the account to pay for everything…..He probably feel foolish trying so many times and that someone was nice enough to help him out because they may have had been in their shoes one day and decided to help out as well…..just glad that they were able to get the food for their kids…..

    • and really, sometime we buy random things that we forget about. It’s human nature to make errors sometimes. In the end, it wasn’t expected, but very much a nice gesture. 🙂

    I had a sweet lady and her husband give my boys some change at the candy store a few weeks ago. Such a sweet gesture from a kind stranger. There are still good people here and my faith in humanity is slowly being restored. <3 Shout out to the Candy store lady that shared her dollars with my boys. Thank you so kindly. 🙂

  38. As a Costco employee, I can honestly say we have amazing members. You would be shocked to know how often phones, purses, wallets, cash, etc. gets turned in. Often my faith in humanity comes from our members and their honesty, and respect towards others. The average are pretty awesome. 🙂

  39. In this day and age it’s heartwarming to hear stories like this. Thank God for kind people who have compassion and show kindness to strangers. Wonderful story.

    Haha yeah they are kinda pompous with their driving and behaviour but they do stuff like that. You should see what my grandparents do! Jesus they don’t let anyone know about it – they keep it anonymous because they don’t want the attention – but I have the records and accolades. When they’re gone the will know just who they really were.
