I work for a big store and today a group of soldiers came into the store on their way to Bridgeport. A customer came to me and said that she wanted to pay for all that the soldiers wanted to buy. All of them! She asked how it could be done so that she could be anonymous (匿名的).

I told her that she could buy a gift card and that I would open up a register and just ring all of them up on one ticket. She agreed and wondered how much of a card to buy, $500 or $600. Looking around and seeing that they were just buying sandwiches and drinks, I thought that was too much. She ended up purchasing one for $300 and said if there was anything left, she would come back in at a later date to pick it up.
I opened a register and announced for all soldiers to come through check stand No. 1. The customer quickly left the store. As the young men and women began to come through with their purchases, they all had their wallets out and I got to tell them that all their purchases had been paid for! I let them know where the generosity came from and they all said thank you and addressed me as, Sir.

As it turned out, that was only a small portion of the military that was about to enter our store. They just kept coming and coming. Other members of our community saw what was going on and that the tab (待付账单)had easily surpassed (超过)the $300 and began handing me money to cover the rest. The total tab ended up well over double what the amazing customer started with her contribution. However, after accepting the rest of the funds from the other generous donations,there was still over $230 left.

I was deeply moved by people' s love and support for those who serve our country.

26. Who paid for the rest part of the tab?
