A young man’s act of kindness at a gas station has gone viral.
Bryan Brown posted to Facebook on Oct. 4 about the incident, which took place at a gas station in Atlanta, Georgia, according to the Conservative Tribune.
"I was just in line at the gas station to get some gas minding my own business," Brown wrote in the Facebook post.
He said he noticed a woman in front of him having trouble paying for gas.
"I overheard the cashier tell her that both of the cards was declined," Brown continued.
The woman turned to walk away and noticed a smile on Brown’s face.
Brown says she asked him, "Why are you f------ smiling?" to which he replied, "Watch your mouth [I] always smile and you should too."
Brown explained that he then asked the cashier what pump the woman was on and offered to put $20 in her tank — and the man behind him did the same.
“When we walked outside to tell her about the gas this lady apologize so many times crying her eyes out ... she went inside her truck to show us her new hire paperwork,” Brown wrote.
“She start [sic] work on Monday so she needed gas for the week until she get paid ... Lord thank you for reminding me of all the reasons why I should keep a smile on my face. That goes to show you we never know what a person is going through And we all have a purpose on this earth!”
