This made me laugh out loud.

Almost the exact same thing happened to me a few years back, I had a $5 off $50 soon to expire grocery coupon. I was in a suit, my daughter was in her school uniform.

While still in the parking lot but all our groceries packed in the trunk I said her, "let's give this to someone, make their day"

first lady we approached looked at us and said, "no thank you" without even a glance at what I had in my hand. The second lady saw us coming and made a beeline to the store.

I gave up before my daughter was completely traumatized in my efforts to pay it forward.
