The goodness of some members of our living society. Usually our trash and recyclables are picked up every Friday. Since Friday was a holiday the stuff is picked up a day later. The girl that puts out my trash forgot to come this morning to do the job. What to do when you got bum knees? I called my neighbor Jack…and he put the trash out for me. Since I woke early to get the trash out…I may as well go to my favorite restaurant for my breakfast meal. That I did. After finishing what I ordered, I waited for my check to pay my bill…my waitress comes over and tells me the couple across the aisle picked up my check. They were complete strangers to me…I was taken aback, why should a stranger pick up my check? I thanked them for their unusual kindness proffered to this gray haired man. My waitress told me they often do that when they visit the restaurant. It seems these people enjoy doing an act of kindness that is unusual. It seems to me that people who see someone use a walker to get around will go out of their way to help that person. After leaving the restaurant, I did some grocery shopping; the cashier seeing my cane in the cart with what I bought…asked me if I wanted help to put the food stuffs into my car…another act of kindness unexpected.
