Hey there, time traveller!

As a visually impaired single lady who does not see well in the dark, I find it quite scary going downtown alone at night.
I recently had occasion to attend a pre-tour concert by one of Winnipeg’s most famous bands at the Pyramid Cabaret, but I was not looking forward to walking to and waiting at the bus stop afterward.
When I arrived at the cabaret, the staff were kind enough to guide me to a table close to the stage where a very considerate gentleman allowed me to sit at his table. We struck up a wonderful conversation while we were waiting for the band, and he generously got me a cola from the bar.
At the end of the evening, he insisted on walking me to my bus stop and waiting with me for 15 minutes, in the rain without a jacket or umbrella, until my bus came and he saw me safely onto it.
He has no idea how much I appreciate his efforts above and beyond the call for someone he met only three hours before.
Thank you, Blair. You truly are one of the good guys.
