I think this is a story worth telling.
On Saturday, Dec. 19, I was in Save-On (Kamloops) picking up groceries. When I went to the checkout, they were all very busy and I inadvertently chose a very slow moving line to wait in.
Behind me were three lovely young girls and we were chatting.
I was joking with them and teasing them about their groceries.
When I reached the cashier, one of the girls said “It would be my pleasure if you allowed us to pay for your groceries.”
I said “No, no, you can’t.”
But, they did.
Before I knew it my groceries were bagged and paid for.
I was so taken aback by the sweetness and generosity of this gesture to an old lady who was a total stranger, I don’t think I thanked them adequately. I didn’t even know their names.
Anyway, I hope they get a chance to see this letter.
