Once a friend said:
He was at a high-class convenience store in a rich neighborhood picking up some milk and eggs when he saw a stranger pointing to a bag of bread.
The stranger asked the owner if he would lower the price so the stranger could afford to buy it.
He mentioned that he was not a beggar, he just didn’t have enough money and was hungry.
The owner surprisingly said no.
The hungry stranger walked out of the store sadly. My friend picked up the bread and told the owner (who knew him), that he will come back to pay, he then ran towards the stranger and handed him the bread. The stranger thanked my friend who then walked back to the store and didn’t say a word, paid for everything and went home.
The next day, as my friend was walking to work, a little girl approached him and asked if he would buy a flower from her.
He reached his pocket but unfortunately, he didn’t have any cash and sadly told the girl how sorry he was that he couldn’t buy a flower from her.
The little girl smiled kindly and said, “I’ll give you one free flower today no problem. You can buy some another day,” and handed him a red rose.
My friend said that was an amazing act, and taught him a lot. A little girl with no money, who was probably feeding a family was generous enough to give him a free flower but a rich convenience store owner didn’t give a discount on a bag of bread.
