Stranger discreetly pays $367 bill for Target customer
A few days ago, Gosnell was helping Gipson stock up on supplies at a Targetstore in Ahwatukee.
When they got to the cashier, Gipson’s credit card was denied.
“I was like no way,” said Gipson. “I couldn’t believe it.”
But the disappointment and embarrassment didn’t last long.
A customer in line discreetly paid Gipson’s $367 bill then took off.
“With so much ugly in the world right now, somebody steps up and doessomething like this,” said Gosnell. “It just makes you re-think everything. Itgives you a positive and makes you wake up with a smile in the morning.”
“There’s good everywhere,” said Gipson. “It just takes people to do it, justdo it, and when somebody does it, just accept it and be grateful.”
Howard hurried out into the parking lot to find the good Samaritan, but hewasn’t around.
He’d love to thank him in person.
“Just what that guy did, I just couldn’t believe it,” said Gipson.
Gosnell posted what happened on Facebook and was overwhelmed by the reactionand the number of people inspired by the random act of kindness.
There’s now a long list of people planning to pay it forward themselves.
