Imagine that guy arriving and two cops waiting for him

I had someone try to bolt on me once after I left the check on their table and walked away. I came back to the table as soon as they walked away(My spidey senses were tingling) to find them gone and no money on the table. They would have gotten away with it, but they were held up slightly, trying to navigate a lobby full of guests. I shamed the ever-living fuck out of those two assholes. I loudly said "Excuse me, but I think you forgot to pay your bill" and then just looked at them.. Every eye in the lobby turned toward them. The disapproval was palpable.

When I was 14 my friend wanted to go out to eat. I had no money so she told me that it was on her and that we’d just split a poutine at the diner near us. When we finished she told me that we were going to do a dine and dash because she had no money either.

I told her how wrong that was and that I wasn’t okay with being her accomplice. She shrugged and left me there. I literally sat there for an hour until I was crying and the waitress asked me what happened.

She paid for the poutine, bought me a pop and thanked me for having a conscience.

Back then it wasn’t common for teenagers to have cellphones (wow I feel old) so I asked my parents to lend me the money to pay her back when I got home and they drove me there to pay her.

Moral of the story: don’t be a fucking dick. The person you’re screwing over is probably nice as hell. That waitress didn’t have to be so kind to me but she was incredibly sweet.

Edit: Thank you everyone for the kind words. Starting 2019 off being told I’m a good person is heartwarming, but the point is that the waitress is the actual good person here. She showed kindness and compassion in a situation where she would have been in the right to be upset. The world needs more people like her.
