We read about these kinds of stories all the time. Most of us will only half-heartedly browse through them without an extra thought, without even thinking for a second that one day, something like that could happen to us. Tyson Crawley from Albury, Australia was one of those people, until an encounter at a gas station shook his core...
Tyson Was Just an Ordinary Guitar Dude from Australia That Had Something Completely Extraordinary Happen to Him!
He was kind enough to share the entire experience with the public via his Facebook page, and this is how he starts off the story: "So today something incredible happened to me…you don’t normally experience these things, but always hear or see a Facebook post about something similar, (but) today this actually happened to me..."
One Day, He Went to the Gas Station...
The fateful day started off pretty much like any other regular day - "6:20am, I was at the service station...There was a man just before me who grabbed a real coffee, paid for it and left."
He Filled His Tank, His Gas Can, and Bought a Couple of Additional Things and Proceeded to Pay the Bill with His Card
He continues: "...I filled up my ute with diesel, filled up my Jerry can with petrol, rolled into the shop, grabbed a couple of dare ice coffees, of course, and went to pay for them..."
But He Quickly Realized That All of His Money Was Transferred to a New Card He Had Recently Opened, and He Was Not Able to Remember His Other Pin Number
It seemed as if everything was going down the drain - “I tried using one that had a joint account to it but I could not for the life of me remember my PIN number! After searching through my iPhone bank app to figure out how to reset my pin I had failed.”
He Had No Cash on Him, so He Was Just Stuck at the Cash Register Frantically Trying to Remember His Pin, but with No Success...
It just kept getting worse - "...My dog was barking wildly, I had to get to work, and I was starting to freak.”
All of a Sudden, a Man Who was in Front of Him at the Cash Register Walked Back Into the Store and Offered to Help Him Out and Pay His Bill. Both Tyson and the Lady Who Worked There Were Stunned!
"This man walks back in, ‘Do you need some money?’ I replied, ‘No no no I just can’t remember my pin!’ He then continues ‘It’s fine.’ I wasn’t quite sure what he meant, but he walked around me towards the register."
The Astonishment Was Even Greater Because We Are Talking About a Really Large Bill, One That Is Just a Bit Over 100 Australian Dollars (83 USD). Tyson Did Not Want to Take the Offer but the Stranger Insisted...
"...No no no please! It’s OK! I have the money I just can’t remember my pin!’ The attendant at the register was just as gobsmacked as me. He replies, ‘It’s a free country isn’t it? I can help a brother out can’t I?..."
Since He Had No Other Options, Tyson Eventually Gave in and Let the Kind-Hearted Man Pay His Bill...
But he insisted that the man leaves his information on the back of the bill so he could pay him back. He also asked if they could take a picture together so he could remember this amazing day.
When He Took the Bill, on the Back, He Only Found These Few Words...
He ran out of the gas station to find the man who exited the place just a few seconds ago but he was nowhere to be found...
So When He Got Home, Tyson Immediately Went on Facebook to Share This Amazing Example of Kindness...
“Please be beautiful people, and remember it’s not about keeping up with the joneses, having the biggest house, most expensive car, the largest bank account, but work with each other. After all, what is money compared to the quality of human life?”
