After paying the stranger’s bill, assuming she could go on with her day, Ruth was showered with appreciation and thank-yous from the strange man, who suddenly looked very familiar to her.
They continued to speak to each other, and Ruth couldn’t take in anything of what he said. She was overwhelmed by the fact that she had seen this man before. Who was he?
She Offered to Pay
The customer that couldn't pay was unknowingly lucky to have Ruth around. She wasn't going to let this man put his groceries back as most people would, so she offered to help.
Believing this would all be done with after paying his bill, Ruth was in for a surprise as the person she came across, was no stranger. Not to her and not to most people.
A Lifetime Decision
Years ago, Ruth and her husband made a decision to always help people that needed help and especially soldiers. She said in one interview; "We decided when we saw military people we would treat them at Wawa or Dunkin Donuts or whatever."
So when she spotted the opportunity, there was no way of ignoring it and she grabbed everyone that came her way. When the man who couldn't pay asked someone for five dollars, that was her cue.
He then properly introduced himself and said that his name was Keith. That's when the dime dropped. This guy looked exactly like Keith Urban. You know, the guy from "The Voice". The country singer. Nicole Kidman's husband.
How funny was that? Two people in the world who were the spitting image of one another and both were called Keith. What were the odds?
They Were So Much Alike
The more she looked at him the more she was confused. She couldn't help herself and she asked him politely if someone has ever told him that he looked just like Keith Urban.
She then got the answer she never thought she would ever hear. He very calmly replied, that he, in fact, was Keith Urban. Ruth couldn't believe what she had just heard and was convinced that someone was pulling a prank on her.
