“No Sooner Than My Total Flashed Across the Screen, This Little Kid Said ‘I’m Gonna Pay for His,,, (Breakfast)”

Kid Good Deed

In September 2015, Deputy Donnie Jackson of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida had a positive interaction with a small boy at a Dunkin’ Donuts shop. He wrote about it, and what he wrote appeared on the Broward County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page along with a short introduction: “We had to share this post from Deputy Jackson. With so much negative attention around law enforcement, we were so happy to see this. Please read and share!” This is what Deputy Jackson wrote, “I walked into this restaurant to get breakfast before heading to work my detail. As I enter, all eyes are fixed on me. I could only imagine what was going through the minds of the people inside the restaurant with all the negativity surrounding law enforcement officials. Nonetheless, I proceed to the cash register and placed my order. No sooner than my total flashed across the screen, this little kid said ‘I’m gonna pay for his,,, (breakfast). Shocked and flattered. I declined and his parents insisted saying, when you walked into the door, he insisted on buying your breakfast because he appreciates the thankless job you do!
It’s a good thing I had on my Oakley’s [sunglasses] because I really teared up. In closing, I really appreciated this kind act by this kid and the fine qualities being instilled in him by his parents!” A photo of Deputy Jackson, the small boy, and the boy’s father also appeared on the Facebook post. Deputy Jackson told the Huffington Post, “I’m really just sitting back and soaking [the positive reaction to the post] all up. I feel like it’s a really positive, uplifting game-changer. Hopefully people will focus on what the good [members of law enforcement] do.” He added, “In 26 years of my law enforcement career, nothing like that … has ever happened to me. It really meant a lot to me because it was kinda the first time someone actually showed appreciation — coming from someone so tiny.”
