EDMONTON (660 NEWS) – A woman who was struggling to buy gas at a Costco gas station with a dysfunctional credit card was no doubt pleased when attendant Les Thompson offered to pay for it.
With only the request that she pay it forward, Thompson unknowingly paid for Nathan Fillion’s mother’s gas.
In a post on his Instagram, Fillion commended the attendant’s graciousness.
“That woman was my mother. (Les restored) my faith in humanity.”

The other day in Canada, a woman buying gas at a Costco had trouble with her credit card. The attendant bought her gas out of his own pocket and asked only that she pay it forward. That Costco was in Edmonton, that attendant was Les Thompson, and Les? That woman was my mother. You restore my faith in humanity, sir. My dad and I are sending three iPads and headphones to a nearby senior care facility so that folks there can visit with their families. Right now, we could all stand to be a little less afraid, and a little more Les. (Canada, Costco, Les, iPads, and my mom not pictured.)
In his own way of “paying it forward”, Fillion said he sending a trio of iPads and headphones to a nearby senior care centre so others can visit their families during ongoing COVID-19 precautions.
