Elderly Man Gets Declined At Dollar Store. Then Cashier Changes Everything After Seeing His Hat

The veteran was confused and shocked. He asked Jacob if he had just paid for his things. Jacob replied, “Yes sir.” Jacob told the man that he didn’t owe him anything for the gesture.

McKellar posted the story because he wanted to give credit to Jacob for being such a standup guy. Not everyone has a lot of money to do things like that – how much can a cashier at Dollar General make?

Jacob spent $20 to buy things for a complete stranger! I agree with McKellar, we all need to sing Jacob’s praises!
