MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
On any given day at Chappy's Deli on Perry Hill Road it's busy. But no matter how busy it gets, there is at least one waitress who always takes her time. Her actions caught the eye of customer Peggy Teel.
"In this day and time people just don't take the time to go that extra mile, and she always does," Teel explained. "I have never seen her disgruntled."
Teel noticed the patience of Lynn Smith when she started bringing her 93-year-old father to the restaurant for breakfast a year ago. Peggy said Lynn always makes sure her dad has plenty of water and that his coffee is always hot.
Whenever he accidentally makes a mistake that causes a mess, Lynn is always there to lend a hand. Peggy said her father is nearly blind, but he still sees the kindness in Lynn's actions.
"She goes out of her way to make him feel special, and she accommodates his every need before he expresses what he needs," Teel said.
In her "Cash for Kindness" email to WSFA 12 News, Ms. Teel wrote that Lynn treats her dad with "the utmost dignity and respect...She is a most worthy candidate."
We thought so too, so we gave Peggy $120 to pass along to Smith.
We caught up with Smith just after her shift ended, and she was surprised at the kindness of others.
"I waited on them once or twice and Peggy came in and said she wanted me to wait on them when they come in, and I just help them. It's my job," Smith said. "I didn't think I was doing anything extra!"
It's the unexpected that we love to reward with a little "Cash for Kindness." Smith says she plans to spend the money on her two children.
If you'd like to nominate someone for "Cash for Kindness" send me an email to email@example.com. Don't forget to put "Cash for Kindness" in the subject line.
