At the checkout counter
The checkout counter at the supermarket can be a stressful place. You wait in line for long hours only wishing to pay for your things and leave, but packing and getting your change while everyone else is waiting behind you is enough to give anyone a panic attack. Now imagine what it’s like to be there and suddenly realize you are a few dollars short to cover the whole cost of your bill. Agony. And Delmaretta Stipp knows that all too well. When she visited a local Walmart, Stipp found out she was 13 dollars short to pay the total of her $151-worth of shopping. She was about to leave some of the groceries behind when a kind stranger approached her and offered her the 13 dollars she needed.
Just being kind
That kind stranger was a security guard named Robert Navarro. The two haven’t met prior to this supermarket occurrence, but Stipp caught his attention with her resemblance to Navarro’s late mother. She was touched by the gesture and reported this sweet story to the local news. But things didn’t end there.
The local news station, Fox San Antonio, was quick to organize a touching reunion between Navarro and Stipp. The man came in thinking he was about to have a little friendly chat over coffee and cookies, but he was wrong. Fox anchor Ryan Wolf presented Navarro with a $1,000 reward for his generosity. Obviously, Navarro didn’t do it for the money, but the payout was a great bonus.
