Beat Me to the Punch

This is the best story ever. Really.

I didn't bring enough lunch today. It was just plain poor planning on my part. I decided to go to a local restaurant for a bit of a snack.

After I got my food and sat down, I noticed a man outside the window asking for alms. I thought, "I should get him some chips or something when I finish here." I ate a bit more quickly as I watched one person pass him, then two. Next, a woman in full hijab walked by. She stopped and conversed with the man for a moment, noticed the restaurant, and brought him in. He got a meal out of it, and I got a nice display of human generosity and kindness. Yes, I was beat to the punch. But how lovely! It always gives me faith in humanity to see things like that.
