I've gotten to the point that if I see an opportunity to do something nice, I'll actually go out of my way to do it.
I was driving south on El Camino Real in Palo Alto, CA when I spotted a Starbucks coming up on my right. I stopped into Starbucks, 2000 El Camino Real, and jumped in line just so I could buy a gift card for a stranger.
The line was very short but service was slow because the woman ahead of me was asking the cashier many questions. That is when I noticed that the man behind me was fidgeting and looked like he was in a hurry. When it was my turn, I asked and paid for the gift card as quickly as I could.
Then I turned around and looked into the kind eyes of the man behind me and said, "This is for you. I hope you have a good day."
He was beaming. The happy look in his eyes really made my day.
