# pay it forward
Have you done a random act of kindness today, like these people?
Would you pay a restaurant bill for total strangers?

TWO COLLEGE STUDENTS got a nice surprise on Valentine’s Day when their special dinner was paid for by a “random couple” at restaurant in Pittsburg.

The pair were dining out at Eleven on Smallman Street, and when they went to pay their $250 bill the waitress brought them a note instead…

The happy diner posted the note to Reddit, and commented that the meal was a special occasion for he and his girlfriend, and that they left a generous tip for the waiter.

So tell us, would you do what the note say and pay it forward?
