Will surely pay it forward
I was in line at the St. Vital Square Shoppers Drug Mart just before Christmas, counting out my last $10 in loonies and toonies, when I dropped one of the coins and it rolled under a small, immovable display rack.
As I am visually impaired and thus unable to see exactly where it went, I muttered aloud to no one in particular that I needed the coin to pay for my items, whereupon the lovely lady behind me got down on her hands and knees and tried to locate and retrieve my runaway loonie.
I thanked her for her efforts, at which time it was my turn at the cashier. As I was counting out my change to pay for my jug of milk and stamps, this lady insisted on paying for my milk along with her own items. I was so surprised and flustered I don’t remember if I properly thanked her.
I hope this letter will let her know how very much I appreciated her kindness and generosity, and that I will be sure to pay it forward.
