A nice story records today, of a man and a college-aged girl. Financial look over upon the two individuals. Life is such a coincidence. But it is more about the “Karma of giving”.
Bank line was overflowing with customers. Everyone to deposit the accounts with the worth of money they had in hands. In the line was a girl in her college age carrying a bottle of coins.
While Deric Wortham in the same line, noticing her with really small amount of money made a friendly joke upon her. But her reply of saying that’s all the money she had for her own, made him fall apart.
So he decided to in paying forward to her reminding his own days when he was that age. His intention was to help her right now so that she will one day be able to do the same for another in need. This karma paid him back in very soon future. Two days after this incident he got his money back!
Below is the whole story in detail in his words.
“A couple of days ago I was standing in line at the bank. A young girl (college age) was behind me with a Mason jar 1/3 filled with coins.
I commented to her that she was supposed to wait until it was completely filled before cashing it in. She said that she didn’t have any money in her account and that she had to cash it in now (it probably totalled $5.00).
I remembered being a poor college student myself 30 years ago at BYU. So, when I got to the teller, I told her to withdraw $50 from my account and when the girl came up for her transaction, to see to it that my $50 was deposited into her account with her coins. The teller asked me, “Why? Do you know her?” I replied that I did not but that it seemed to me she needed the money more than I did and I was just “Paying It Forward”.
The teller told me that was one of the nicest things she had ever seen. I left feeling good. And, I secretly asked my Heavenly Father to bless both the young lady and myself because I have bills too.
Tonight, at the end of my work week, my last customer was the answer to my silent prayer. Their dinner check was only $49 but they tipped me $50…the same amount that I had given to the young lady earlier this week! They tipped me not the usual 18% – 20% but a full 100%! Someone “paid it forward” back to me! Karma! I felt blessed! Remember, “Paying it forward” will eventually come back to you! Everyone have an awesome week ahead!”
