A good Samaritan has been praised for buying a woman and her three kids supper after she left her purse at home. The stressed-out mom was on her way home from football practice when she decided to stop at a junk food drive-thru with three cranky kids in tow.
After placing her order, she realised that she had left her purse at home and upon hearing that, the employee who was serving her pulled out his card and swiped for the meals. The woman was flabbergasted by his altruistic gesture and promised to pay him back, even though he refused.
The woman took to Facebook’s Fabulous Lovers of Weird Everything group to post about the kind man, only known as “Wyatt”.
The grateful mom shared a pic of Wyatt and wrote:

Ubuntu: Kind Samaritan helps family that was stuck on the road
In a previous article, YEN.com.gh wrote about when John Kinghom was on his way to work on a random Tuesday morning when he saw a broken-down car with a woman and her child in it.
The kind man explained the mom was in tears as she detailed what happened to the car. YEN.com.gh learned the family had hit a pothole and had been stuck at the side of the road since midnight.
Her hubby, Brian, then walked seven kilometres back to Richmond in KwaZulu-Natal to look for help.
"After a couple off calls we got Brian, got the tyres fixed and they are on their way to Alexandra in JHB to continue with their lives there."
The Good Samaritan added:
"South Africa is a great country with great people, we the people get to decide if we are positive nation builders or negative couch potatoes that look at all the problems. One random act of kindness can go a long way in changing another person's perspective and future. So let's get building."
