At an Applebee’s in Washington, Pennsylvania, a touching story played out, showing us how human kindness and surprising generosity can warm our hearts. Applebee’s, you know, is the spot where folks gather for a special occasion or just to grab a bite with the people they love. On this memorable evening, Jolie Welling was throwing a birthday bash for her little girl, surrounded by their nearest and dearest.
Now, Jolie and her crew didn’t know it, but there was a couple sitting at the bar who couldn’t help but watch the birthday party and the heartwarming family gathering. Touched by the scene, they made up their minds to do something truly kind, paying the entire bill for the birthday dinner without making a fuss.
When the check came, Jolie couldn’t believe her eyes: some stranger had picked up the tab for all 16 guests at the party! Overflowing with gratitude, she shared her story on Facebook, thanking the mystery person: “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.”
Even the waitress, Samantha Powell, was taken aback by the couple’s amazing gesture. She talked about her own reaction, saying, “I was almost in tears. It touches me, too. They were just so surprised. They were like, ‘Oh my god. Who? Who?’ and they were looking around and wanted to know who it was, but I would not tell them. He approached me to tell me to give him the check for that table.”
