Stranger Pays For Struggling Mom's Groceries, Then She Freaks Out When She Sees His Face
Katie Mooney 3/18/2017
They wander the crowded food aisles with us, withstand constant temptation, and hold onto the cart (as instructed) the entire shopping trip - our children certainly amaze us sometimes. However, waiting patiently in line to pay after that super successful shopping trip is an entirely different story.
The purposely positioned last-minute toy grabs, super-sized chocolate bars, and colorful gum boxes - the "final lap" of the grocery store race is without-a-doubt a challenge for most parents. One mom knows these shopping-trip frustrations all too well...

Robin McFadden stood in a busy line at the grocery store after food shopping and couponing with her three children. Being the mother of three energetic boys and having just come from her son's basketball game, this frazzled mom was very familiar with the end-of-shopping craziness. As Robin spoke with the cashier about a concern with her order, a voice from behind her asked,
"How much is she short?"
That's when this surprised and moved mother of three turned to see who was standing behind her...comedian Jeff Foxworthy!
She shared with Fox 5 News,
"I was coming from my son's basketball game with my three sons and decided to go couponing at Publix in John's Creek. I was at the register, and between me worrying about my items and the kids fussing, I didn't even know that Jeff Foxworthy was standing behind me."
At that moment, this well-known stranger walked around Robin and happily swiped his card to complete the payment of her grocery order. Jeff's random act of kindness...$25. The selfless gesture to help someone in need...priceless!
Robin was so moved by her experience with Jeff Foxworthy, that she posted the following picture on her Facebook page, along with the caption,
"The kids were restless and look who was behind me. He paid for my order when I wasn't looking! I love Jeff Foxworthy!"
