Good food, good times, and sometimes, when you least expect it, the bill of your meal is taken cared of.

A couple who always eat at the restaurant in Pennsylvania randomly pick up the bill of some diners and pay it themselves.

This happened earlier this week to Jolie Welling who celebrated her daughter’s 6th birthday. The couple paid the bill of 16 people!

She posted on Facebook, “Thank you to the person that took care of the bill tonight at Applebee’s in Washington! This person paid for the whole party of 16. I have never had this happen before and it brought tears to everyone’s eyes.”

Samantha Powell, a waitress who worked that night, also remembers very well the reaction of the crowd.

“They were so surprised. They asked, “Who? Who?” and looked around to find out who it was, but I could not tell them,” she explained.

“He approached me to tell me to give him the check for that table.”

“I mean, I was almost in tears, it touches me, too,” she added.

Many are curious about who these mysterious donors are.

Applebee’s Asst. Manager Bernie Lewis says she’s  know their identity, but swore she would not reveal it.

“He always says, ‘I grew up poor and now I’m not’ and that is all he says,” Powell said.

In a world that is full of turmoil, so much hatred, it is good to know that there are still people who care about each other. Random 🙂
