Sometimes I’m a cranky Westporter complaining about the rudeness and dangerous drivers at 4-way stops, especially along Cross Highway.
But the other night I was gobsmacked by a young man at McDonald’s. He kept waiting to hold the door for me — and then insisted on paying for my burger when I realized I had to run back to my car for my forgotten credit card.
I patted him on the back and asked, “What made you the nicest person in the world?”
I am elated to see such kindness and generosity from a Gen Z-er. It’s a generation I study for business, and don’t always give a good rap to.
Pay it forward!
