“Why Not?”

In July 2014, a mystery Good Samaritan, who was in his late 20s or early 30s, got permission from a manager of the Grocery Outlet in Concord, California, to buy people’s groceries for them. When someone’s groceries were about to be rung up, he would ask the customer if he could pay for the groceries. He spent approximately $600 on other people’s groceries. Manager Jamie Flores said, “We had people hugging him. People were asking him if he won the lottery, if he had a good job, but he didn’t really want to give out any information.” She added, “At one point I asked him, ‘Why are you doing this?’ He just said, ‘Why not?’” She was impressed by the man’s altruism: “All you hear about is car accidents and shootings on the news. It’s just nice to know that there are good people out there in the community.”
