A woman in poor clothing entered a fancy restaurant. The customers laughed at her.
She was wearing a ragged old dress and looked sloppy.
The hostess ran up to her without even trying to hide her disgust.
“Madam, you have probably mistook this place for somewhere else.” She wanted to get rid of this unwelcome guest quickly.
She looked at her shyly and asked if this was her grandson’s restaurant.
In the dining hall, people began to whisper and giggle.
The hostess looked at the woman with a pitiful look. It is. What do you want?
Call the administrator right away! One of the disgruntled guests exclaimed, I booked a table here in advance not for this beggar to watch me eat!
Her head hung low as she said softly, “I won’t take much of your time, dear.”.
The hostess reluctantly invited the elderly woman inside, to the sound of general disapproval and averted shouts.
If I were you, I would have called security! She smells bad, didn’t you notice? What a nightmare! Clearly, the visitors were feeling hurt.
A woman with desserts went to the showcase and gazed at it for a long time.
She will not get anything if she hopes to eat here for free! They giggled at her. She seemed to ignore their disapproval.
Honey, Is it possible to buy only half of the lemon cake? What will it cost? “I have $17,” she said, clutching a few crumpled notes in her hand.
Laughter barely restrained the waiters. I don’t even think you have enough money for a slice of this cake, Madam.””
Our chef has created a work of art! We don’t sell it in half.
Her face turned pale as if something had collapsed inside her. She hobbled slowly to the exit.
She was suddenly called by a man dressed in military uniform sitting next to his wife in the corner of the restaurant. “Come here, please!” he called. You look unhappy! Did something happen? ” ’ He asked with his charming smile.
“My daughter. She was very sick. When she was a kid, we used to pass this restaurant and she used to look at its windows for a long time. We dreamed of eating the lemon cake here one day but then she got sick. My husband left and I got several jobs to feed us. This cake is the only thing I can do for her now since we cannot afford to continue the treatment. But I only have $17. “The tears rolled down her face.
Without hesitation the military man summoned the waiter and asked him to pack a whole lemon cake for the woman at his expense.
Today marks 17 years since we lost our son Alex. He died in a car accident. My wife and I couldn’t do anything through she is a doctor. 17 years and 17 dollars in your pockets if this is not a sign from above then what is?
Her wife gave the elderly woman her business card and promised to help with her daughter’s treatment.
When the waiter brought out the lemon cake for the lady a grateful smile appeared on her face. She thanked the military couple and headed for the exit.
There was deathly silence in the restaurant as no one felt like giggling anymore.
