Who is the mystery Ballarat man buying food and petrol for complete strangers?
Well, all we know is he is bald, drives around with a big dog and has a habit of buying goods for complete strangers without ever meeting them.
Yesterday, The Courier put the call out to hear some of Ballarat's good news stories at a time when the is a lot of doom and gloom in the air.
We received a number of submissions which we aim to share in the near future, but here's one that caught our eye.
The entry was from a reader named Bill Walker. Unfortunately Bill didn't leave his contact details, but we wanted to share his story anyway.
It seems there is a lot of great stuff happening out there and want to keep sharing your stories - we just need to hear about it.
If you have a good story to share, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
Here is Bill's 'good news' story:
My wife and I drove through McDonald's Sebastopol last week and when we got to the payment window, we were told that there was nothing to pay, as the car in front had paid.
We were surprised and asked why, and the lady told us that the gentleman often does this just as a sign of kindness.
Apparently he is a regular who comes there everyday with his dog.
The lady wouldn't tell us his name so we didn't know who to thank.
Imagine our surprise when we were filling our car at the petrol station, when we heard the man behind the counter tell someone in front of us that a man just paid for their petrol.
We looked outside and saw a bald man get into a car with a large dog sitting in the front seat.
It was the same man!
Once again we were told that he sometimes does this, but they didn't know his name.
So whoever he is, thank you.
Your acts of kindness, expecting no thanks, put a smile on our face, and was such a wonderful thing to do in these uncertain times.
