Keith Urban performs onstage during the 2018 CMA Music festival at Nissan Stadium on June 9, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee. Urban was at a New Jersey Wawa when he came up short for his bill. A woman stepped in and paid his tab.
Ruth Reed was at a Medford, New Jersey, Wawa Friday night. So was Urban on his way to his concert in Camden.
Reed, who is a substitute teacher, had made a resolution to help customers she ran into at Wawa, the AP reported. When she was waiting to check out, the man in front of her was a few bucks short for his bill, so she paid the remainder.
“It was then I realized what an idiot I was,” Reed said.
Reed’s story has gone viral. One of her former students posted on Twitter, “My favorite story of the day is how my 3rd grade teacher thought Keith Urban was down on his luck and couldn’t pay for his Wawa snacks so she bought them for him. What an angel.”
