A boy who needed $2 for a dessert received a random act of kindness from the cashier at the Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers in Katy, Texas. The cashier who completed the act of kindness was not expecting anything in return. But, as the child and his mother were getting ready to leave, they gave the cashier something he will never forget.
According to KHOU 11 News, Travis Sattler was working the cash register when a little boy approached him and asked for mini mint Oreo custard. Sattler revealed that the boy pulled out all the money he had on him, but it wasn’t enough to buy the dessert.
“He was maybe $2 short.”
Instead of refusing service or having the boy try to find $2 worth of change from somewhere else, Sattler decided to pay for the boy’s dessert with his credit card. Sattler noted that the boy was surprised by the random act of kindness.
“He had just the biggest eyes [and] the widest smile.”
But before Sattler’s shift was finished, the boy approached him again. This time, it was to give Sattler a letter that contained a $100 bill from the boy’s mother. The letter read, “Thank you for being so nice and paying for my custard. We need more people like you.”

Sattler admitted that he was not expecting a random act of kindness from the boy in return.
“I like to think that I made a good impact on their day, and I kind of brightened it up, just like they did mine.”
Sattler added that he will put the money toward nursing school. For completing the random act of kindness, a spokesperson for the Freddy’s chain said Sattler will receive an additional $100 bill from the company. Officials at Freddy’s would also like to find out the full names of the boy and his mother and give them gift cards.
Padden Nelson, the owner of the Freddy’s restaurant in Katy, applauded Sattler for his random act of kindness.
“Travis’ face is probably a face that boy will remember for a long time.”
Sattler’s act of kindness is also receiving a warm reception from the people on Twitter.
