After taking my quilt to be washed in the laundrette on the cut , i was on the way home and stopped in the costcutters with the quilt draped over my shoulder. I noticed a young girl with her mum staring at me and whispering to her mum ..she then came over and offered 20p to the "poor homeless man " lol
She looked a bit put out when i pointed out i was just on the way home from the laundrette (mind you i was just wearing a tracksuit and scruffy t-shirt !! )
Another instance at E+C station. A Mum and small child had *just* missed the train, doors had closed and it had started to move off. But, amazingly, the driver noticed them, stopped the train and opened the doors!
Last week I fainted on the number 78 and the kindness I experienced was so touching. The bus was full as it always is in the morning. One man jumped off the bus to buy me a drink and a chocolate bar, I was given a banana, another man was on directory enquiries getting the number of my work, someone called the ambulance and a lady offered to come to hospital with me.
It wasn't a great morning for me but people are nice and we shouldn't lose sight of that.
