This video shows a man buying all of a rose seller's stock, leaving her in tears.

This is an old video that resurfaced on Reddit this week, but who cares! It's spring! Let's believe in love, random acts of kindness, the possibility that you might have a pleasant interaction with someone on the 6 train, and flowers.

The clip shows a man grilling a rose seller on the cost of her wares and it seems like he's spoiling for a fight. Then things take a surprising turn when he just buys them all for $140 on the condition she give them away and take a break for an afternoon. She realizes what he's saying and starts to cry from relief/happiness.

A part of me can't believe this actually happened, because it's played so well by both of them. The timing is perfect and the beauty of the moment is so poignant. How can this be real? Sigh. Maybe there really are suited bro types who know what it's like to bust your butt hustling all day and this one saw a chance to alleviate someone else's struggle.

Roses for everybody!
