Hinesville, GA (WSAV) – Two Liberty County Sheriff’s deputies were treated to a meal by a stranger in a Hinesville restaurant Friday evening.
The deputies, who didn’t want to be identified, were on a dinner break at El Cazador Mexican Restaurant. When they went to settle the bill, they learned their meal was paid for by an anonymous citizen who simply wrote on the receipt, “Blue Lives Matter, Thank You,” which touched both men deeply.
“The ticket was at the register when we went up to pay,” said one of the deputies. “The waitress showed us the ticket and said that a lady that had just left paid for our meal.”
The deputy went onto add that it’s not unusual for citizens to pay for their meals out of appreciation for their service to their community.
“It’s happened more now lately than before, and it just feels nice to know that we are appreciated by the citizens. This is the first time that anyone had ever left a note. It was a real positive feeling especially when someone doesn’t standby to receive credit for doing something nice. That’s a very unselfish act.”
