Random act of kindness

Employees at the Cavalier Diner in Charlottesville are nearly speechless by a random act of kindness that occurred at their counter when a customer turned a disaster into a remarkable experience for a busboy he didn't even know.

Employees don't know the customer's name. They say he comes in occasionally, but what he did Saturday gives them renewed hope in people and holiday spirit.

Sixteen-year-old Clay Lawson from Nelson County buses tables while he goes to school. This year he saved up enough money to buy an iPad to help with his schoolwork, but almost as soon as he came home it disappeared.

The iPad got mixed in with a bunch of cardboard which was headed for a fire pit and it got totally cooked. Several of the diner's employees were discussing this sad turn of events and evidently this customer overheard their conversation.

He paid his bill and left but returned about an hour later and gave a waitress something, asking her to give it to the boy. It was a gift card for $360 at Best Buy.

Lawson picked up his new iPad Sunday night after work. He said he canít wait to pay it forward with his own acts of kindness for others.
