To the Elvis things, yes, he was quite generous; I think that was his way of expressing warmth and regard and his way of making others lives a little brighter.
DH and I were talking about this thread on a walk and he said, "If a billionaire bought everyone's coffee at Starbucks, I wouldn't have a problem..." and I said, "Not true, if Warren Buffett opened a tab at SB and said, 'I'm paying for everyone for the next 4 hours,' you'd have a problem with it." He said, "I would! You're right!"
He doesn't get upset with me when I'm generous as opposed to charitable, but his giving is always charitable.
I was on the receiving end of some acts of kindness when I was traveling in Denmark and my flight was 12 hours delayed, completely blowing off my connection, and it was so heartwarming to have ppl go out of their way to support and guide me through my travel nightmare. Small kindnesses are never wasted.
