A ray of hope for dis­il­lu­sioned cou­ple

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

MY wife and I went to Joey’s Ke­nas­ton for din­ner Oct 25. Across the way in a small booth was a gen­tle­man named Dave. He and I be­gan talk­ing about hockey. Soon my wife joined in and the con­ver­sa­tion pro­gressed to our re­spec­tive chil­dren and places we had each trav­elled. The time flew by and we were sad to see him leave. About 15 min­utes later when we were ready to pay our bill, the waiter in­formed us that Dave had paid for our en­tire din­ner. Whether he knew it or not, he’d given us far more than a free din­ner. He’d re­minded a dis­il­lu­sioned cou­ple that, in a world dom­i­nated by ma­te­ri­al­ism and self­ish­ness, there are still gen­uinely warm and kind in­di­vid­u­als like Dave.
