The Outback workers had no idea their receipt had gone viral on social media.

Here’s your daily dose of feel-good news for the day. Four Louisiana police officers received a pleasant surprise when they sat down at a local Outback Steakhouse in uniform. The meal was pretty normal, but little did they know that their server and her manager decided to buy their dinner.

When the officers, who are actually regulars at Outback, received the receipt, they saw that their $67 dinner was on the house. Their server had instead drawn a smiley face and written, “Be safe! “Thank y’all for y’all’s service! Enjoy y’all’s meal on us!”

Although we’ve seen acts of kindness like this before (remember when that waitress picked up the tab for a cancer patient’s bill, or when Buffalo Wild Wings paid the bill in honor of a fallen soldier?), server Zoe Rao and manager Arline Wood have been exceedingly humble.  When word got out that their act of kindness went viral, they thought the publicity was a little too much, and wished their act had stayed quiet. 

“I got a phone call early in the morning and I was like what are you talking about?” Wood told Mad World News. “People were calling me and then we saw it on Facebook, then it’s on this one and that one, and we didn’t do it for this publicity, because Lord knows I don’t like all this publicity.”
