While grocery shopping at Walmart, some firefighters in Apex, North Carolina got an emergency call and had to drop everything and leave the line before they had the chance to pay. And when they returned to the store, they learned a good samaritan had already bought the groceries for them, and left a note of thanks on the receipt.
"The nice employees at WalMart told us that it was a lady behind us in line," Station 2 Engineer Jeffery Jones says. "But we never did actually get to meet her to tell her thank you." Firefighters from Apex Station 2 posted a note of thanks on Facebook to the kind stranger to let her know how much they appreciated her gesture.
"It makes me feel like there are still good people in the world," firefighter Andrew Baker says. “You don't get that every day, so to me it gives you a warm feeling inside to know that people really do care about you."
