Claw machine at Christmas

A few years back I was at the TA in Ashland, Va on Christmas morning. I had just had my shower and was on my way to the restaurant for a breakfast buffet.

I stopped at the claw machine and won a stuffed toy. I put it in my bag and proceeded to the restaurant to eat.

While there I saw a mother and a daughter — she had to have been around 4 or 5 years old —  and I overheard the daughter saying she hopes he can find them, so I assume they were on their way someplace and maybe got laid up.

So I asked the waitress to give me their bill and as I went to pay for my meal and theirs I gave the little girl the stuffed toy that I won and told her “Merry Christmas.”

Hopefully, I made her day a little bit better
