Sarah is a waitress who heard female soldiers, members of the National Guard, discussing something. What she heard made her pay for their lunch, but you won't believe what happened next. Ellen, the famous talk show host, did something unexpected. Take a look.
It All Happened at a Ruby Tuesday Restaurant in New Hampshire
Sarah heard them talking about the fact that they couldn't afford their lunch. During the government shutdown in 2016, there was a furlough and they didn't get paychecks. They had to set a limit to what they ordered.
Sarah Knew the Struggle Herself
Sarah's son was almost 1 year old at the time, so she knew what it meant to limit expenses and save money. Because she could relate to the financial issue, she paid the bill.
Instead of the Bill, She Gave Them a Note
Their meal was $27.75, and in the note, it stated the following: "Thanks to the government shutdown, the people like you that protect this country aren’t getting paid. However, I still am. Lunch is on me! Thank you for serving, ladies!"
Later That Day
She went home and even had trouble paying for gas, but what she didn't know is that the female soldiers posted her note online.
