Secret Santa pays off $46K in layaway at PA Walmart
« on: December 11, 2016, 10:50:33 PM »
(...) When Ryan Kennedy, Walmart store manager in Everett, Pennsylvania, answered a phone call from an anonymous "Santa B" last week, he didn't expect anything out of the ordinary. He especially did not anticipate Santa B offering to pay off the entire cost of his store's layaway items.
"It was complete disbelief," Kennedy told CNN. "It was definitely a great gesture. I was completely shocked."
Santa B told Kennedy that the jolly elf wanted to pay off all of the layaway items on hold, totaling $46,265.59.
After Kennedy spoke with the anonymous caller, the two arranged a time for another individual connected to Santa B to drop off the check. Kennedy and his store received the check on Wednesday and started calling the 194 people with layaway accounts to tell them they had been paid off.
"Some individuals were just brought to tears when they were notified about it," Kennedy said.

It does sound like some kind of shady secret.
