Today my wife sent me an e-mail, sharing a very amazing story that I’d like to share:A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things, when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her, and continued on.
Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. “Pardon me,” she said, “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who justdied recently.”
“I’m very sorry to hear that,” replied the young man, “is there anything that I can do for you?” “Yes,” she said, “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better.”
“Sure,” answered the young man politely. As the old woman was leaving, he called out,“Goodbye, Mother!”
As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. “How can that be?” He asked, “I only purchased a few things!”
“Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.
Golden greetings from Berlin,
