Help on a hot day

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

IN the midst of May’s heat wave, I set out to buy two kid­die pools for my dogs. I found what I needed at Wal­mart’s gar­den cen­tre. I bought the large pool. No prob­lem, I thought, be­cause I have a mid-sized car. As I was drag­ging these pools through the park­ing lot, a lady of­fered to help me carry them to my car. Turns out it was a prob­lem: They wouldn’t fit in the back seat. I was go­ing to tie them to the roof, but the lady who came to my help said, “I’ll just check with my hus­band. We have a truck and can take them to your house.” Sure enough, this lady and her hus­band loaded the pools in their truck and took them to my home. I of­fered them money for their time and gas, but they wouldn’t ac­cept it. Thank you to this cou­ple, who were so gra­cious and kind on such a hot day. They went above and be­yond be­ing kind to an­other per­son. It re­ally re­stores a per­son’s faith in the hu­man race.
