On 1 December 2014, Redditor Anaria32 posted a Good Guy Greg meme on Imgur with this heading: “Just witnessed this… The little boy’s mother started to cry. The father stated that he had just lost his job so money was really tight.” This is the text of the meme: “A THREE-YEAR-OLD BOY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS TOY TRUCK, BUT HIS PARENTS COULD BARELY AFFORD WHAT WAS IN THEIR CART / GENTLEMAN IN FRONT OF THEM IN THE CHECKOUT LINE OVERHEARD AND SECRETLY BOUGHT THE TRUCK FOR THE BOY, ASKING THE CASHIER NOT TO SAY ANYTHING UNTIL HE HAD LEFT THE STORE.” Redditors tend to be a suspicious bunch; this is not necessarily a bad thing — being suspicious can involve critical thinking. HeyLeesin commented, “Straight bullsh[*]t. How did the parents not notice the firetruck not get rung up, huh?” Anaria32 replied, “He handed the cashier more than enough cash to cover the truck… Whatever was left over went to helping out with their grocery bill.” Jynnjynn recounted a similar story: “When I was maybe 4 or 5, I was with my mom and brother at a JC Penny’s or something like that… my brother who is a few years older than me really wanted some pair of shoes, but my mother couldn’t afford them. An older woman in the store overheard the conversation between them and bought the shoes for him, stating that her own grandchildren were spoiled and wouldn’t appreciate them as much.”
