There is an ancient proverb that goes, “There is no such thing as a free lunch,” and it is well known. Even the acronym TINSTAAFL is sometimes used in practice. It is said in Epictetus’ Enchiridion (maxim Number XVIII) that “… nothing is won for free, and therefore must cost us some thing.” [Citation needed]
In this incredible story, we get to listen to a news report that is not at all ordinary.
Customers have reported that complete strangers have paid for their items and then given the staff a present.
The FOX5 Surprise Squad inverts the proverb in a hilarious way.
The FOX5 Surprise Squad has been responsible for several impressive accomplishments. However, even the smallest of deeds may occasionally have a major influence on the course of a person’s life. Where can I learn more about the FOX5 Surprise Squad? On the website for FOX5 Vegas, it is stated that the FOX5 Surprise Squad is proudly sponsored by United Nissan, America First Credit Union, and Albertsons Vons. On December 16, 2013, it started surprise viewers all across the Las Vegas Valley with acts of kindness. The Surprise Squad travels across the city to surprise and make the day of a few deserving fans of FOX5’s programming.
It is impossible to predict when or where the Squad will show up, much less what they will do when they do. One of the surprises they had in store for us was a trip to the neighborhood Albertsons, where they planned to fill up not just our shopping trolleys but also our hearts. The FOX5 News anchor Maria Silva This Morning was the one who was tasked with going out into the field and informing the customers as well as asking questions of them. “Hello, my name is Maria, and I work with the Fox5 Surprise Squad. Please refrain from doing that since we are paying for your food.
When the surprised residents and customers found out that the television team would be paying for their food, it turned out to be a very fortunate day for them.
What were their first impressions of the situation?
“Had I known that, I would have purchased more items.”
“I can’t thank you enough.”
“Oh, my heavenly sweetness!”
When the customers at Albertsons at Jones & Tropicana in Las Vegas found out about the surprise that was waiting for them in the checkout queue, they were overjoyed.
Arthur Wheeler, a 35-year resident of Las Vegas, was taken aback by the news.
“I’ve never been on TV. Arthur could not contain his excitement as he screamed, “This could be the closest I get to Hollywood!” Oh my goodness, this is really your chance, you… Maria said. Arthur responded affirmatively, “Yes, yes, I’m on my way,” demonstrating his self-assurance. The question “tell me a little bit about what brings you to Albertsons today?” was directed at Terry Jacobson, a father of two children. “I’m getting ready for the kids, which is great because it means I can take them to the movies,” she said. “That’s a nice feeling, that’s a good feeling,” he said. “That’s a wonderful sensation.” The following is what he said after that: “so everything, everything helps out.”
Another satisfied patron related her story to the group.
It was brought up by Mona Neria, a mother of two sons aged 18 and 16, who said that it was required immediately.
“This is the last week of our stint in jobless. She continued by saying, “So, that’s terrific!” After that, Maria said, “So, is there anything more that you need that we can go acquire right now?” In her response, Mona said that she would be grateful for some meat for her children. After that, Maria continued her shopping expedition and acquired some extra provisions from the store.
After then, there was a charming narrative.
Maria inquired of a guy who seemed to be retired, “Do you have any relatives here, or are you here by yourself?”
Unfortunately, my wife has died away,” Abe Wisotsky said. “She was my best friend.” Now it’s just me sitting here by myself. Molly was her given name. Back in New York is where our love story begins. When asked what aspect of her he misses the most, he said. “Pretty much everything,” was the response he gave. Abe was moved to tears by the kind act of the news station, which consisted of them purchasing his weekly food. After that, the FOX5 Surprise Squad conducted an interview with one of the cashiers, who said that just witnessing her clients get assistance made her feel emotional. “Please enlighten me on this community.
Are there a lot of families living on a low income?” Maria asked. Melissa Leopoldo, an employee at Albertson’s, was quoted as saying, “There’s a lot.” Melissa was all too aware with the struggles that her clients were going through. She is a single mother to her daughter Daisy, who is nine years old, and she acknowledged that being a single mother is challenging. The group had been paying attention to the cashier’s interactions with the delightful customers.
They came up with the idea to surprise Melissa once again by giving her $200 that she could use to buy things for both herself and her kid. She spoke those words with tears running down her cheeks as she thanked everyone. “Daisy, look at what we got. We have food that costs two hundred dollars for us to purchase. Everything is possible because of FOX5 and the Surprise Squad.
Without a shadow of a doubt, this was without a doubt one of the most greatest and most motivational “free lunches” that may be shared with other people.
