Kind stranger picks up the tab at AAA in Charlotte

Of all places, AAA on Montford Drive was where I encountered my everyday angel.

I was in the waiting room talking to the other people there, and the subject of Anson County – specifically the town of Wadesboro – came up. Come to find out, a gentleman in the waiting room was from Wadesboro. So am I. Of course, we knew some of the same people.

My service person came to tell me how much my bill was, and I asked if they offered a senior citizen discount. He said they did.

The gentleman I’d been speaking with left before I did. When I went to the cashier to pay my bill, it had already been paid. Wow! I feel truly blessed. Sarah G. Watson, Charlotte
