Adrianna Edwards lives in Galveston, Texas, and she works as a waitress at a Denny’s there. And every day, she walks to and from work. And that’s a round trip of 28 miles every day. But she has to do it, has to pay her bills and feed herself. She was saving as much money as she could so that one day she could buy herself a car.
Word got out about her loyalty to the job, and one day, after serving a couple breakfast at their table, they gave her quite a tip. It was car keys. And those keys were for a 2011 Nissan Sentra that the couple had just bought for Adrianna at a nearby dealership.
The young waitress was nearly speechless and started crying because of the incredibly kind gesture. Now, she would no longer have to make those four-hour walks to get to work.
Says Adrianna: “I still feel like I’m dreaming. Every two hours, I come look out my window and see if there’s still a car there.”
There was, however, one thing the generous couple asked of the waitress… that she could someday pay it forward with a kind gesture of her own.
And Adrianna vowed that one day, when she was financially stable enough, she would certainly attempt to make as kind a gesture to someone else as was done for her.
