TOKO­ROA KIND­NESS

South Waikato News - - Your Pa­per, Your Place - Fiona Fer­rar, Toko­roa

The other day a man was seen putting a note on my car Roslin Street, Toko­roa.

I didn’t bother check­ing on it un­til I left work, but it said ‘‘Ex­tremely sorry about your side mir­ror! Please ring Lana about get­ting it re­placed – sorry again!’’

My driver’s side mir­ror was smashed, but my mood in find­ing it was a lot dif­fer­ent to what it might have been with­out the note.

So I called Lana who was just so lovely, ap­par­ently her daugh­ter swerved to avoid a car com­ing the other way, and the wing mir­ror on her car hit mine.

So I ar­ranged for it to be fixed this morn­ing, ad­vised Lana of the $80 cost, and at lunchtime she dropped off the cash plus a box of cho­co­lates to my work­place.

I am just blown away by the hon­esty and kind­ness of Lana.

I thought that many peo­ple would have kept on driv­ing where she didn’t give it a sec­ond though as let­ting me know was the right thing to do. Faith in hu­man na­ture has been re­stored!

Thanks heaps Lana!
