Waitress Buys Couple Meal After They Work On Their Phones During Dinner To Help Flood Victims

Chris and Dreama Richards spent their entire dinner at a restaurant in Rocky Mount, West Virginia on their cell phones. But they had a very good reason.

They were coordinating donations for victims of a flood across the state, Independent Journal Review reports. Even so, they felt the need to apologize to their server for “being rude” and talking on their phones the whole time.

The Richards didn’t expect the reaction they got.

Instead of a check for their meal, they found a note that read, “Please take the money you would have spent on dinner tonight and use it to buy supplies. I know it isn’t much but I know every little bit helps. God bless you and stay safe.”

Dreama was so touched by the waitresses gesture that she had this to say on Facebook, “There are still good people in this world!"

She continued to write "Chris and I were just having dinner in Rocky Mount. Our waitress was asking where we were from. We were talking about the devastation in WV, and she said her husband’s grandmother is in Richwood, 87-years-old and has not been able to be rescued yet. Our prayers are certainly with this little lady.”

So, they went off to by some more supplies for the flood victims, and say the support they've received has been overwhelming, the Independent Journal Review reports.
