i love when i hear about those doing nice things.
it makes me feel like there is still compassion left in the world.
well this cashier,
by the name of sharnique dasant,
at walmart did something nice for a customer.
  she paid the customer’s entire grocery bill with her credit card.
peep why it happened via yahoo news

A South Carolina mother of three, was “absolutely blown away” when a Columbia Walmart cashier insisted on covering half of her $200 grocery bill —with her personal credit card.

On Friday evening, Ashley Jordan and her husband, Michael, were shopping with their 1-year-old baby daughter, Kinseigh, at the store while their other two children Cayleigh, 5, and Aubreigh, 3, stayed at home with a sitter. Ashley and Michael piled their groceries for the next two weeks and new clothes for the girls into two carts.

At checkout, their cashier, Sharnique Dasant, told the couple that they looked like they needed a “blessing.”

“She said ‘I think y’all need a blessing tonight!’ And she waked around to the machine and swiped the card,” Ashley, 27, tells PEOPLE. “She said ‘God told me to bless y’all!’ I said ‘Are you serious? Okay, thank you!’ ”

Ashley took a photo with Dasant  and posted it to Facebook, where it’s garnered over 22,000 likes.

“I wanted her friends and family to know how genuine she is, because we need to see these good stories in the world today, and it’s good to know there’s people out there who will do a blessing like this,” says Ashley. “It has opened my heart. I plan on paying it forward in the future.”

“We’re usually in and out, but Sharnique is such a wonderful woman, and we’ve become close!” she says. “I don’t know what she saw in me to do what she did, but she says she heard a voice tell her. There are good people out there!”

The mom, who says Sharnique will meet her other daughters soon, hopes the selfless act will inspire others to spread love and kindness.

“I hope more people will open their heart to helping those around them,” she says. “Everyone can learn from Sharnique!”

Desalt could not be reached for comment but she told a local television station that God told her to help pay for their groceries.

“As we’re scanning and scanning, she got in front of me and it’s like I saw a different face on her,” Dasant told WLTX19. “And I just had like a little man on my shoulder that was like, ‘Give her a $100 dollars, give her $100 dollars.’ And I was like, ‘give her $100 dollars?’ Like, I’m talking to myself like, ‘Give her 100 dollars!’”

“So I was like, I said, ‘Yeah, God told me to give you $100,’” Dasant said, “and she said ‘What? What? What are you talking about?’ So I said, ‘He told me to give you $100 dollars.’ So I went ahead and I slid my card. I went around the register and I slid it for her.”

i think it was a nice story.
i will admit i did ask myself:

How many black families,
who were probably struggling,
that God didn’t ask to offer a blessing for?

just wondering.
sharnique will be blessed if she did it out the kindness of her heart.
i’ll wait to see if the foxhole is on the same page.

  1. LOL! Okay… Yeah, I’m sorry, I’m all for “doing good things” but no. This girl is probably working minimum wage at Wal-Mart, I’m going to assume that she doesn’t have it like that to throw around. It’s her money, go ahead, but personally, like Dean and Jamari said, I’d rather the person be black and STRUGGLING. Until I see that type of generosity coming from “the other side”, I’m not going to be sticking my neck for them like that. She didn’t even need to do that anyway, technically, they already get plenty of our dollars, but our dollars are never coming back to US!

    Eh, I just don’t get it. Perhaps she misconstrued what “God” was saying. *shrugs*

    1. But we don’t know her situation – Wal Mart could very well be a second job for her, and she has a primary job that supports her. As the guy said above, it doesn’t take much to bless someone and be a blessing. It’s the hardest task to do so, when you don’t have it. Continued blessings to people who continue to be a blessing for other people.

      1. Could be, but I don’t think it matters personally, but at the end of the day, it’s hers to use as she pleases. It’s not my thing, but then again, it’s not my life, nor my money, nor my problem. She did something nice for someone, that’s nice. I’ll just leave it at that.

  2. Jamari, you wrote “How many black families,
    who were probably struggling,
    that God didn’t ask to offer a blessing for?” Exactly. The level of self-hate among African Americans is more than ridiculous. It’s pathological. And “Pathology doesn’t follow logic.”

    1. Usually, no, but paying someone’s bill for them when YOU’RE the cashier seems to be more than “much” for me! LOL!

  3. God, asks and blessing’s are not fair just ask anyone who has ever won a lottery, god will return her blessing back to her three fold, his word never returns void.
