What Jason didn't expect was to hear from the cashier that he had insufficient funds. He’d just deposited his check about an hour prior to shopping. But apparently, the funds hadn’t actually cleared in time to cover his grocery bill.
That's when he heard a man behind him say, "I got you." Jason turned to the man in line behind him in shock. He quickly declined and asked the stranger if he had heard the total, but the man replied once again, "I got you." And this kind angel paid for the groceries in Jason’s cart.
