Heavy lift­ing no de­ter­rent

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

I pur­chased an el­lip­ti­cal ex­er­cise ma­chine from Cana­dian Tire that weighed nearly 200 pounds. My brother was go­ing to pick it up and carry it up to my fourth floor apart­ment for me.

I stopped in to pay for the ma­chine and dis­cov­ered that it would fit in the back of my ve­hi­cle with the seats down. I was not able to lift it so a cou­ple of staff mem­bers car­ried it to my ve­hi­cle for me. I fig­ured I would leave it in the back of my ve­hi­cle un­til my brother could come by and bring it up­stairs in a day or two.

When I ar­rived home, I opened the back of my ve­hi­cle to see how heavy it was when a young man came and asked me if he could help me. I thanked him but said it was very heavy. He said that he would go and get his fa­ther and they could carry it for me.

He got his fa­ther from the next apart­ment build­ing and they car­ried all the way up­stairs for me.

Thank you so much for your help. It was much ap­pre­ci­ated.
