I think they were CMU students, but I’m not sure as I was a little preoccupied on my phone and dealing with my crying daughter in the back seat.
I said thanks, but I would like to let everyone else know about these great students who saved me and all the other people in traffic.
Thanks again and to the drivers who honked at me in frustration, I hope you read this and will be a little kinder next time. I believe in the goodness of people. I experienced an anonymous woman’s goodness in Portage la Prairie at about 2 p.m. Sept. 15 in the Portage Canadian Tire parking lot.
I had just bought a gift I was excited about and was in a rush to get home. I took the gift and my other bags out of my cart and put them in my trunk and promptly drove away.
A couple of kilometres down the road, I realized I didn’t have my purse. I had left it in the cart.
I trusted that the people of Portage are good and that when I returned to the store, my purse would be there. Sure enough, as soon as I walked up to customer service, there it was on the counter. A friendly man who was in line told me that a woman had just brought it in, saying that she found it in a cart in the parking lot.
That wonderful woman did not leave her name, but I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for turning in my purse with all contents intact. I promise to pay your random act of kindness forward. Thank you
