Frowns turned into smiles

 Thai Food Huntly is a popular restaurant in Huntly, New Zealand. It was packed with customers one night recently when suddenly a family staff emergency resulted in the chef being the only one left to serve hungry patrons. When Emily Puhi arrived, she saw filled tables plus people lined up to pay or pick up take-out. Since the cook was cooking, he could not take orders or collect money.

Suddenly, a lady who was waiting to pay grabbed some paper and started waiting tables instead. Another customer jumped up to wash the dishes. And with the permission of the chef, a shop owner from next door ran the cash register and made sure everyone paid. "It was such a beautiful feeling, said Emily. "Frowns turned to smiles and grumpy waiting turned into patient waiting."
