Kamloops resident says thank you for giving

Before I knew it my groceries were bagged and paid for.

Editor: The Times

I think this is a story worth telling.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, I was in Save-On (Kamloops) picking up groceries. When I went to the checkout, they were all very busy and I inadvertently chose a very slow moving line to wait in.

Behind me were three lovely young girls and we were chatting.

I was joking with them and teasing them about their groceries.

When I reached the cashier, one of the girls said “It would be my pleasure if you allowed us to pay for your groceries.”

I said “No, no, you can’t.”

But, they did.

Before I knew it my groceries were bagged and paid for.

I was so taken aback by the sweetness and generosity of this gesture to an old lady who was a total stranger, I don’t think I thanked them adequately. I didn’t even know their names.

Anyway, I hope they get a chance to see this letter.
