Random Acts of Kindness

Ok, so here's my thought for the day (which Brynne already knows, as I was whining to her about it)

I was having a bad day. Had a nasty woman complain in the morning and actually reported me to my superior, second day of transit in a row so I was tired, not to mention being violently ill this morning. (No, no babies lol)

Anyways, so kinda in a poopy mood. This guy comes in, he's a nice guy, I recognise him. He tells me how he can't claim his monthly bus passes on his tax, because he doesn't have the receipts for them. So I printed out a bunch of receipts and wrote a professional looking note to go with them, vouching that he did indeed buy them at the right time for the whole price blah blah. He left and came back with two chocolate bars, he said as a thank you "for being so nice" !! That just bowled me over. Not just the chocolate, which in itself is awesome, but just the thought, the act itself. Every time I work transit I see how mean, selfish, selfserving people can be. This person reminded me that they can also be kind, thoughtful, and considerate.

Thank you, David Roziere.

I'm excited to have coffee with you on Thursday or Friday!

And I love experiencing random acts of kindness, whether I'm on the giving or the recieving end.

I'm so sad that I missed doing coffee with you on Thursday, but I didn't end up leaving Winnipeg until almost 5:30, and then the roads were crap from Winnipeg to Portage. I ended up getting into Brandon around 8ish.

So we must reschedule. But that's alright. Coffee. Someday.
