The Coolest Thing Happened

My mom's group was out for a mom's night out at the Olive Garden. We ordered drinks, appetizers, and meals. Personally, I ordered a pretty expensive Grilled Shrimp Caprese. We were eating, and as a group of 7 women are apt to do, chatting fairly loudly.

Near the end of the meal, a man who was sitting next to his wife approached the table.

"I hope you ladies don't mind. I heard some of you are teachers or former school teachers. I have lots of respect for that, so I took the liberty of taking care of the table's ticket. Enjoy."

And he disappeared into the night.

The ticket was $250!!! Paid in full. You would not believe the waiter's face, or ours!

Chris and a friend were eating at a restaurant wearing their military BTU's and someone picked up their check anonymously. That meant a lot to them.
