A healthcare worker who was rostered to work on New Year’s Eve has thanked a complete stranger for paying for her breakfast the following morning while she welcomed the start of 2022 with her colleagues.

The emergency nurse, who lives in Victoria, posted about her sweet experience in the Facebook group The Kindness Pandemic on January 1.

‘I’m an emergency nurse and worked night shift on New Year’s Eve. A few of my colleagues and I went out for breakfast afterwards and when we went to pay, an anonymous person had already picked up our bill, drinks and all, as a thank you for what we do,’ she wrote.

‘We don’t do it for the thanks, but it’s so nice when things like this happen. I know I am going to pay it forward.’

Plenty of her fellow Australians were pleased to see healthcare workers getting the recognition they deserve after two long years of fighting Covid on the frontline.

‘Glad to hear this wonderful act of kindness. No need to pay forward. I am extremely grateful you are looking after us and are doing an excellent job. Take care of yourself,’ one man wrote.

‘Well deserved treat for all of you. Thank you for all you do as nurses,’ said another.
