Aww of the Day: Secret Santa Picks Up Layaway Tabs

The Consumerist:

"This lady came up randomly and said, 'Can I, you know, pay off some people's layaway?'" the Kmart employee who dealt with the unidentified customer tells WOOD-TV.

At first she thought the woman was trying to pick up the three layaway orders but the mystery shopper, described as being in her 30s, told the staffer, "Nope, I just want to help people."

The woman randomly picked and paid for three layaway tickets out of the approximately 800 on the store's books. Her only requirement was that the orders included some toys. In the end, she paid a total of around $500, leaving a balance of $10 on each of the three tickets.

Awwww….on a related note, people still do layaway?
