Mother of three


To the woman who sat in front on me on the 61 Scotia square today: You heard me talking on the phone with my mother, asking her if she had five or 10 bucks i could borrow because I really wanted to get a coffee, and if I did, I feared I wouldn’t have enough bus change to get to work all week. When I went to get off the bus you handed me $10. A little embarrassed, I tried to refuse your kind gesture, and you simply would not take no for an answer. You truly made my day!

What you don’t know is that I’m a mother of three, working two full-time jobs to get by. I spent my last bit of money the evening before buying groceries. Your kind heartedness truly made me believe there are still genuine, kind people out there. It was so sweet, and I thank you! —Enjoyed my coffee knowing I had bus fare!
