    It sounds like this woman's heart is in the right place, but it sure feels like nobody's head is ever in the right place anymore. She left a note for the dumpster diver and then posted it on Facebook. Is anything done in private anymore? She even says she thinks maybe they didn't come in to take her up on her offer because of pride. Quite possibly and I'm sure inter-web attention wouldn't help that.

    Why not just leave the note and keep it to yourself and make it a true act of selfless kindness instead of using it to fish for likes? Hey, why not stake the dumpster out with a news crew ready? Howard 101 aren't very busy these days, they might be willing to do it for a PB&J.

    Oklahoma Restaurant Owner Leaves Note Inviting Dumpster Diver to a Free Meal (ABC News)
    Ashley Jiron was outside her Warr Acres, Oklahoma, restaurant when she noticed that someone had been going through the dumpster.

    “I had gone to the back to go put some trash in the dumpster, and I had noticed that some bags and containers with food were emptied and gone through,” Jiron told ABC News. “Immediately, of course, my heart sank, and I knew I needed to do something about it right away.”

    Jiron, 30, who owns P.B. Jams, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich spot, took action and posted a note on the dumpster outside.

    “Unfortunately, I was not able to see that person or have the chance to talk to them or invite them in, so I thought that leaving a note might do the trick for me and get them in for me,” she said.

    The note invited the person in, no questions asked, for a free sandwich and vegetables. For Jiron, the gesture was personal.

    “I am a mother of two little girls and I’ve struggled like a lot of single parents out there, and I’ve had to ask for state assistance food stamps and such,” she said. “Sometimes at the end of the month there wasn’t enough to feed me and my family. Something as simple as even just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is very comforting to somebody and maybe even offer them a few words.”

    post on Facebook getting nearly 600 “likes” and over 200 “shares.”

    “I don’t know if that person will ever come in with the attention this has gotten, because it could be pride. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s pride that’s not my intention at all; I just wanted to feed them something simple,” she said. “It has been so incredible the kind of support from everyone messaging and writing me and thanking me for something so simple that I thought was just second nature.”

    this is silly. So she doesn't want anyone to take the good food out of her dumpster?

    I guess everyone's forgotted about the feudal days.

    He probably would eat better than that out of the dumpster.

    That being said, I would totally do that asian lady in the picture.

    Her heart's in the right place, but what if fifty bums show up in one day all claiming to be the dumpster diver?

    When iworked at borders years ago the staff thought we had a homeless person dumpster diving. The kids in the store were heart broken and wanted to tape gift cards to the dumpster. My loss prevention guys had another thought and started watching security videos of the dumpster. Turns out the cafe manager was stealing. She would throw shit out with the cafe garbage (by shit I mean DVDs, etc) then come back late at night after closing to tear the dumpster apart to reclaim her stolen goods.

    I watched a story on one of the news magazines. Dirty hipsters cutting bills for skinny jean money.

    Lunch is 87 cents.

    Not the smartest business model.
