A man came in to return some overdue DVDs. The fines pushed his account over the limit so he wouldn’t be able to check out more materials until he made a payment.
Man: “I can only pay a little bit today, but I think it’ll get me down enough so I can get some books.”
Me: “Great! Yeah, no rush on paying the balance. Just pay a little when you can.”
After he walked away to browse the shelves, I asked the next person in line how I could help them.
Woman: “Yes, I’d like to request a book and also pay the rest of that man’s fines.”
Me [taken off-guard]: “Wow, that’s very nice of you. Are you sure?”
Woman [taking out her wallet]: “Absolutely. It’s perfectly fine with me.”
Awwww. I love people.Source: iworkatapubliclibrary
