What would you do if it started raining money? Make a mad dash for it or do what these Chargers fans did and help out? Great story on people coming together for the sake of one woman:
At a recent preseason football game between the San Diego Chargers and the San Diego 49ers, it began raining money.
The Chargers fans gathered in the stand where the dollar bills dropped were initially delighted with the surprising change in weather. But the money wasn’t theirs to keep: A waitress had tripped on a stair, and had dropped about $1,000 in bills of various sizes.
Fans who’d seen the waitress fall immediately began calling out to those in the lower seats to alert them to what had happened. “All my customers began screaming over the railing to the people below: ‘That’s the servers’ money,’ ” the server, Heather Allison, told Signs on San Diego.
Immediately, the crowd began working together to help Allison, collecting the stray dollar bills from the stands and passing it to a security guard. Within ten minutes, the guard returned the money to Allison. “It was all there,” she said.
Allison, a mother of four, even pocketed $170 in tip money.
She wasn’t surprised that the crowd had come together to help her out. “Chargers fans are amazing,” she said. “We’re like a family.”
