Last night my sister helped me go shopping, since Ange and I were in charge of cooking last night. Our first stop was at a roadside fruit stand that is about a mile from where we are staying.
I picked out a huge Watermelon (the gentlemen working the stand went in back and got me the sweetest Watermelon he had!) 5 gorgeous tomatoes, 1 large red onion, and 5 perfectly plump plums!
My sister and I walked up to the counter to pay and the gentlemen simple said “have a nice day”. My sister and I looked at each other very confused. “But I have to pay?, I said. He didn’t answer our question, but offered to carry the watermelon to our car. I remained in my spot at the counter, so I could at least pay him something, but when I laid some money down he said, “please mam, any money you leave will insult me”. My sister and I were so moved by his generosity, we thanked him a million times, and got in the car. The entire ride back my sister and I cried. We were both so touched by this man and a random act of kindness. Pzlease, please if you are ever in North Topsail Beach, on Topsail Island you must visit him…
There really are good people out there…thank goodness:)
