A stranger walked in at Denny's in Utah and asked if he could have a waitress who's a single mom. After that he was just sitting there while 7 families came and left and he paid for all their meals totalling about $1,000. The staff shared this heart-warming story on Love What Matters Facebook page to thank him.
Broadcast network NBC News was able to find the man and ask him a few questions. He said “I’ve done this many times, but this is the one that got out.”
When he was asked why he specifically wanted to help out a single mother he answered: “I grew up with a single mother of six. We were poor and homeless a lot. I watched and suffered for years as I watched her work her hands to the bone to give us a good life. She raised us to be kind and help others. Many years down the road, I was facing prison and getting in trouble. It ended up causing me to lose my family because I was a really terrible person.”
He has changed his life for the better since and now runs a successful business and this is his way to “pay it back.”
