THE long-haired man looked down-and-out and was a few dollars short at the servo. A grandmother paid his bill. “Thanks”, he said. “My name is Keith”.
Ruth Reed, a retired schoolteacher, had made a vow to help someone out with their bills once a week, so when the shaggy haired guy ahead of her at the grocery store appeared to be short a few dollars, she jumped at the chance to help him…..
He asked a lady with him if she had money. I jumped in and said I would pay and explained why. He thanked me and asked my name. I asked him his and he told me it was Keith. I said that he did look like Keith Urban. He said he was.
Ruth looked around, saw the entourage, and the penny finally dropped – she’d footed the bill for a country music star worth around $75 million.
Keith did pose for a pic in return though, and she’s now got a priceless story to dine out on.
My favorite story of the day is how my 3rd grade teacher thought @KeithUrban was down on his luck and couldn’t pay for his wawa snacks so she bought them for him. What an angel. pic.twitter.com/mJccVOQWtp— Olivia Rose Prouse (@liverdiverz) August 4, 2018
