It was a bleak Tasmanian winter’s day.

This particular Sunday, I decided to change the scenery, and take my two children out to lunch to our favourite café in town. We arrived at the café, and were offered a great table close to the wood fired ovens, right next to the lovely radiating warmth, and taking in all the delicious aromas wafting through the place.

I ordered a seafood meal and pizza for the kids. Once our meals came out, I found mine to be a chicken meal instead of a seafood meal.

The staff were super busy, and after many attempts at trying to bring this to the staff’s attention, I decided to commence eating, as I was hungry.

In the meantime, we noticed an old man, poorly dressed, and a little rough looking, walk into the café. He quietly sat at a table, looking like he just needed to sit and rest. He sat there resting his forehead in his hands. We have often seen this man wandering the streets in town, looking homeless, or simply uncared for.

We watched, and were amazed when the staff would just walk past him and ignore him, no acknowledgement at all. He looked like he could use a good meal.

When it came time to pay for our meals, I suddenly realised I hadn’t taken my purse with me. I checked my coat pockets and found just enough cash to pay for our meals. I was disappointed that I did not have extra cash on me, and thought to myself, there has to be a way to give something to this man.

The waitress was ready to take out payment, and asked us if we enjoyed our meals. I explained that I didn’t enjoy mine as I was given the wrong meal, but staff were too busy to gain their attention, and I gave up and ate the meal instead.

To my surprise, I was told that they would not charge me for my meal, as they had a refund policy for unsatisfied customers. Bingo – I had extra cash.

I went over and discreetly approached the old man, and asked him if he could use some money for a meal. I would like to help.

He was filled with gratitude, but couldn’t speak. I organised his order, and made sure all was okay before I left.

He asked me for my name, and I told him. As I walked away, I could hear him repeating, “Angel,” as he ate his meal.
