New Jersey woman spots Keith Urban cash for snacks at Wawa

New Jersey woman spots Keith Urban cash for snacks at Wawa

"It was then I realized what an idiot I was", she said, according to the AP.

Reed says she hopes her story will help people realize the importance of doing acts of kindness.

On Friday, a retired elementary school teacher named Ruth Reed paid a visit to Wawa, a convenience store in the township of Medford, New Jersey, where she found herself in line behind a man who appeared to be short on cash. She says she had made a resolution to help Wawa customers and jumped at this chance to do good.

Keith Urban was at the store before his concert in Camden on Friday night.

"We decided when we saw military people we would treat them at Wawa or Dunkin Donuts or whatever", said Ruth.

But as she was paying she thought to herself that the guy looked familiar. "And who was that woman you were with?'" Reed said. Do people ever tell you that you look like Keith Urban?'


The singer thanked Reed and said his name was Keith, prompting Reed to comment on his resemblance to Keith Urban.

Reed admits she took some convincing.

The two then took a photo together. When Reed overheard Urban ask for five dollars from a friend, she made a decision to step in and help him out.

"When he told me who he was, I didn't believe him!" "Being at the right place at the right time and too stupid to recognize Keith Urban when you see him".

"And I just fell apart, fell apart", she said. Though an American country music star, Urban famously hails from New Zealand.

"And he really could have said, 'Lady, get away from me!'" she said.
