Kind­ness in gro­cery store line

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
