A MORNINGTON woman is keen to thank a “complete stranger” for his generosity while she was shopping, Saturday 10 July.
Catherine Warters said she was about to pay for a few small items she had bought at Aldi, in Main Street, Mornington, when her payment option – her phone – refused to function.
“I have my card loaded on my phone but, for some reason, it did not register,” she said. “I asked the checkout guy to hold my shopping while I went to my car to get my purse and card.
“When I was asking for this to happen and apologising a man behind me, a complete stranger, offered to pay my bill.”
Ms Warters said she thanked the man “for being so kind” but declined his offer and hurried off to get her card.
“I arrived back at the checkout only to be told that the man had paid for me,” she said, flabbergasted.
“He apparently wanted to do something nice for someone.”
Ms Warters said she “would really love to thank the man for his lovely act of kindness”.
“I wish more people could be kinder to each other; it would most definitely make a calmer and less aggressive world,” she said.
