In a post on the social media site, the viewer praised the buyer.
“Call the lovely lady at Aldi at lunchtime today when an elderly lady in front of her couldn’t get her card to work,” they said.
She went on to say the shopper stole her own card to pay for the elderly woman’s groceries.
“The lady was so overwhelmed by such kindness that she didn’t know what to do,” they wrote.
“She obviously has never witnessed such a great act.”
The audience was also overwhelmed by the act.
“It warmed my heart, brought tears to my eyes and made my day,” they said.
Many people in the community group flocked to the post to applaud the woman.
“It makes my heart happy,” someone said.
Another wrote that her generosity “made my day.”
While a third commented, “Random acts of kindness get the world moving.”
Among the messages of praise, however, one comment stood out — it was the selfless woman herself.
“It’s the least I could do,” she wrote.
“I appreciate it (the praise), but you would have done the same.”
Noting her friend’s actions, a friend of the woman wrote: “Not surprised it was you. You are a beautiful person.”
The humble comment didn’t stem the tide of love as others shared their own stories.
“I had this done for me in Nowra a few weeks ago for no reason,” one person wrote. “It makes you grateful that there are still nice people in our midst.”
“This happened to me at Aldi not long ago!” Another person commented. “My card didn’t work on my phone, nice lady paid $180 for my groceries.”
