At the time I was young and had just moved into my first apartment. I was working as a lead at a local corner store, and volunteered to work all of Thanksgiving. Everyone else rotated in small shifts to help me out during the day. Really it was more so I had company.
At the start of the day right after we had opened an older lady came in and asked if we had a few various items, I helped her find everything and she gave the usual "I'm so glad you're open, but really sorry you have to work today." In the up until about 3 we were fairly busy then everyone started settling down with their families and it was just myself and a cashier. Who left around 5 so she could go home and eat dinner. About 6 the same little old lady came back to grab some candy and was shocked to see me still working there. I explained that I had volunteered to do so, for two reasons, it allowed myself to save up a little more money, and gave all of my peers a short shift so they could spend time with their families. To my shock about 15 minutes later two men arrive, and explain that their mother asked them to load up a plate of thanksgiving dinner and bring it over. After working in retail I've seen some terrible people but to this day this warms my heart.
TLDR; nice older lady came in twice while working a double on Thanksgiving at a corner store, had her son's bring me Thanksgiving dinner.
