A huge thank-you to the gent in the Jets T-shirt who helped me in the Portage Place Parkade on March 23.
After the Jets game and a concert by many talented artists of the Prairie Exchange Theater School, we found that my credit card would not work to pay parking for the evening. We deposited loonies, toonies and every form of legal tender we had, but they all dropped in the "return" bucket.
The Jets gent and his lovely lady waited patiently while my face got redder and redder. Then the machine ate my ticket.
The man paid our parking for the evening and said, "Grab your ticket. I want to go home. And don’t forget to pay it forward!"
I promise I will. So kind of this man. He refused repayment and certainly made our evening as we got to go home too.
With gratitude to you, Jets gentleman.
