To the editor:
My husband, Colin, our year-old son, Liam, and I visited from Topeka tonight to have dinner downtown at The Mad Greek. Dinner was lovely, and the service was great. We rarely go on "dates," even with the little one, so we decided to treat ourselves to dessert as well. When we went to pay, there was a glitch with our bank and our cards would not go through.
Undaunted, although confused, my husband ran to the ATM while I continued to play with Liam at our table. He entertained himself by flirting with everyone else at the restaurant. Our cards didn't work at the ATM either, so I tried to contact our bank to find out what was wrong, but without any luck. The restaurant's policy is no checks, so we were at a loss for what to try next.
When Colin approached the hostess to see what we could do so we could get our account settled, she informed us that our bill had been taken care of by a couple sitting near us. We were surprised and extremely grateful.
Thanks so much to this generous and anonymous couple. Our family looks forward to passing this gift on in the future.
