On Wednesday night a customer went amok and bought bus vouchers and chicken skewers for almost 3,300 DKK in a 7-eleven in Aarhus, Denmark. But it was not a huge hunger or a great urge to go by bus that was the reason for the somewhat special purchase.
21-year-old Emil Sand (pictured), who works in the 7-eleven in Aarhus, suddenly had a very special experience. He explains:
"It was a busy night, and there were many drunk people in the store. Out of the blue came an approximately 40-year-old man to the counter and wanted to buy a whole lot of food and vouchers. When the other customers heard that it was all to the homeless, they broke out into cheers and patted him on the shoulder. The entire store was so excited, and it was truly an amazing experience," he told BT.
The customer, who Emil Sand estimates was completely sober, would not have the food delivered but asked instead Emil if he could make sure that it was given to the homeless, who often comes to the store during the night to get money for bottles. Emil Sand promised and gave the promise on to his successors in the morning. The vouchers the customer wanted to hand out himself.
"I thought it was important to make sure that the homeless were given the food that the customer has paid for. Because it is a really great thing he did, "says Emil Sand.
Although Emil Sand has never experienced anything like it, he has actually met the giving customer in the store before:
"He has often come to the shop at night. For example, he bought two liters of yogurt and returned ten minutes later and bought five new ones because he had given them to a homeless. He also told me that he works in a shop where he makes sure that the homeless get the excess food, "says Emil Sand.
Unfortunately Emil Sand does not know the customer's name, and BT has therefore been unable to get a comment from the customer.
