This is just another example of the kindness and generosity of our police officers. I like to eat breakfast out and did so by myself recently on a Saturday. I usually take a book with me and I had my book on this particular day and was reading as I ate.
When I was seated, I noticed three Davenport Police Department officers at a table at the back and then I just didn’t pay any more attention to them until they started to leave. I believe I smiled and nodded, and went back to my book and food.
When I was ready to pay, I looked for my check and couldn’t see it. I thought perhaps it had fallen on the floor and I started to look, when the waitress came up and said, “Your check has been paid by one of the officers.”
By then, they had already gone and I had no chance to thank them, so this is my thank you for my breakfast and for being so thoughtful.
Thank you very much – I hope you will read this and know that I will try to “pay it forward.”
