Was just a little thing I guess, but the guy saw it as enough reason.
He was a single man serving a late night (early morning ) rush, by himself at a subway, and being the last in line, my friend and I waited patiently.
We both knew exactly how it felt to be a single crew versus a small crowd, so when I turn came up, we joked, and helped relieve a touch of the stress on the man working by himself behind the counter. When we got to the register, I offered to give him a tip on card, since I had no cash on me at the moment, but, sadly, the store didn't allow that exchange, so I sadly could give him anything for the wonderful attitude he held through out the entire time. Instead... he gave me a token.
Time to pay it forward.
I work at the crosswalk at an elementary school in Tigard, Oregon. I was doing my duty of assisting kids to safely cross the busy intersection. A woman that walks by every afternoon as part of her exercise routine handed me a token . It was a great ending to my day. It made me feel valued.
As I was leaving Safeway this afternoon, the lady who had been in front of me at the check stand gave some cash to the guy panhandling just outside the entrance. Then a bag of cookies to the guy closer to the driveway and then a bag of groceries to a family of three on the other side of the driveway. I stopped her in the parking lot and apologized for not having any Tikkun Tokens as she earned 3 in the space of less than a minute.
I'm not exactly sure. I mean I say Hi to everyone and try and wish everyone a great day. I try and recognize others around me doing a good job I wasn't quite sure why I got one but the person told me to keep up the good work.
A lovely lady was seated in the emergency exit window seat with an empty seat in between her and the gentleman on the aisle on my flight. (I'm a flight attendant with Southwest Airlines) All I did was say I would stand in that center seat as I checked for qualified passengers who wanted to sit in the exit row seats, and I said "I like to take care of my passengers, so with any luck, no one will want this seat. I want you to be comfortable." They both seemed grateful that it might not be occupied, and as they were disembarking, this lovely lady gave me this token. It touched me greatly, and although maybe a small thing, it means a lot to me. Thank you!
