A Boston-area server says his faith in humanity has been restored after a diner secretly picked up the bill for a pair of strangers who he overheard receiving a devastating diagnosis.
"While waiting tables tonight, a mother and daughter started crying mid-meal. I had no idea what happened until a single guy at the table next to them handed me this note [seen below] with his bill," said the server.
The server said that the two women started crying after the younger one took a phone call during her meal.
When single diner was finished with his meal, he returned his check back to the server with his credit card and the note.
"I waited until after he had left to tell them their checks had been taken care of. The mother was overwhelmed with gratitude, as was I. It was a great evening," said the Boston server.
