‘I got you’: A stranger stepped up to pay for a man’s groceries after his card declined and now the 2 are ‘friends for life’
As Boudreaux, 46, tried to pay for his groceries, his card was declined, and that’s when the kind stranger stepped up and said, “I got you.”
“I told him, 'Hey, what are you talking about? I can’t let you do that — that’s too much,” Boudreaux told the Washington Post. “But he insisted, and kept saying, ‘I got you.’ When I told him I would pay him back, he said, ‘No, you don’t have to.’”
Boudreaux then asked to take a photo with the stranger and later posted it to Facebook to thank and find him. He asked if anyone recognized the man.
