I went to pay for an Oxford business license during mid-afternoon on Jan. 31 (the last day payable without penalty). I was told by the clerk that the computer indicated an additional amount was owed than the amount of the company check.

I suggested I could return to the shop for the extra due or retrieve my purse from my car and pay and be reimbursed, and she said she would hold it until Monday.

The man in line behind me asked the clerk to repeat the amount due ($21.46) and placed a $20, a $1 and 46 cents on the counter against my protest, “No, don’t do that — then I would owe you!”

He replied that I didn’t owe him anything, that he had had recent good fortune and wanted to “Pass it on.” The clerk and I began to cry, and as I hugged and thanked him, I said I can’t wait to pass it on, and I will. Just a bit of good news.
