Still in awe

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

A GROUP of us had just fin­ished clean­ing the hall af­ter my son’s week­end wed­ding. I was us­ing my friend’s Jeep to trans­port the 24 boxes of rented equip­ment I was re­turn­ing. I no­ticed the low-fuel light come on, so I pulled into the Co-Op on Archibald Street. I wanted to fill my friend’s fuel tank and told the at­ten­dant to fill it up, but when I went in­side to pay the $58, I no­ticed my debit and credit cards were still in the evening purse I used at the wed­ding. They couldn’t take a cheque. I called my son to bring my purse, but he wasn’t at home. My son asked if they could take his credit card num­ber over the phone, but again, they couldn’t. I was still on the phone with my son when the clerk came up to me and said my gas was paid for. I was as­tounded and asked who paid it. She pointed to two girls who were in their red Mus­tang and about to leave. I ran out and thanked them and said I didn’t know what to say. All they said was, “Have a nice day.” I am still in awe and will def­i­nitely pay it for­ward.
