kindness around the corner

a few weeks ago i hauled a pile of old paint cans to the bin doctor recycling centre on clifton. the weather was awful and i had an infant in the car. as i got out a man came over and offered to help. he unloaded the car with me, and then took my stuff into the depot, saying he knew his way around there well. he wouldn't take anything for his help. just today, i was around the corner at halifax glass & mirror on north... twice. i was looking for a pane of glass that i hadn't expected to find anywhere. not only did they have it, they cut it for me on the spot... free. when i got home i realized i'd measured wrong. i called, and they cut me a new piece, free again. there is clearly such thing as the kindness of strangers.
