Kindness in grocery store line
MY son and I walked to our neighbourhood Sobeys store in River Park South to pick up a couple of things.
When we arrived at the checkout, I went to pull my wallet out and it was not in my pocket. I looked down at my son and said, “I left the money at home. We need to call Mom to bring it to us.”
There was a woman in front of us in the line paying for her groceries. She looked over after hearing our conversation and said, “Don’t call your wife and make her come down here, I’ll pay for it.”
I started to turn down her kind offer, but before I could complete my sentence, she said, “Non- sense, it’s a cucumber and a can of olives, not a big deal.”
I asked for a business card or number so I could pay her back, but she would have none of it.
So, to the unnamed woman at Sobey’s in River Park South, thank you very much. What a nice thing to do.
On the walk back home all my son talked about was the lady at the store and how nice she was.
