Sweet lady at the Detroit to Windsor Tunnel Bus

I was waiting for the bus to return to Windsor from dropping a car off in the Detroit area when a woman also waiting at the stop at the tunnel entrance asked me for fair to cross. While going through my change a car pulled up as the lady driving it needed to retrieve her purse from her trunk. She saw us there and asked if we wanted a ride across. The lady at the bus stop said she had to wait for someone so I gave her bus fare and accepted the ride from the sweet and beautiful lady. She told me about immigrating to Canada from Mexico 20 + years ago and believed in helping others. She even drove me to where my car was parked a few blocks away.
It's so nice to see someone as sweet and caring,
Thank you Ms Mexico :)

Shout Out to Kind Employee at Zehrs - Malden Road

I purchased 3 avocados from Zehrs on Malden Road, and when I got home, they were no where to be found. I searched my entire car, thinking maybe they rolled around by accident, but no luck. I'm an on-call worker, and haven't been working much lately, and the avocados were basically a splurge, due to their price (but they're oh-so-yummy). I went back to the store the next day to pick up an item I forgot, and decided to check the front to see if they had a "left-behind log" for food. They did have this log, and I showed my recipe, but my avocados weren't listed. The friendly cashier said, "Just go pick out some more; you have your receipt, and I don't think that you'd come all the way back for 3 avocados if you already had them."
I worked at the same chain of grocers in the past, and I know that if the item left behind wasn't logged, the policy was that we couldn't give the customer the item. I asked if the cashier was sure, and she said, "Yes! Go ahead! If anyone stops you, I'll pay for them!"

She has no idea how much she made my day. Now I can "indulge" on avocados and not feel guilty for spending the money on something extra while not working much. Thank you so much for your kindness!!

Helpful Cashier

Krista at Sobey's check-out was very helpful to me yesterday when I found out that I had accidently left my credit card at home in Colchester. I wish all store employees were as friendly and good at problem solving. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to Krista.

Honest Shopper... I thank you!

I was exhausted this morning but made my way to the Amherstburg Sobey's to pick up some groceries. I put $60 in my pocket and zipped it up as I wanted to get in the store quickly and didn't want to carry my purse. Somewhere along my way, it fell out of my pocket, which I didn't discover until it was time to check out. I went down each isle and retraced my steps but couldn't find it. Unfortunately I had to go back out to my car to get some more to pay, and the cashier took my name and phone number just incase someone were to have found it. Not even an hour later, an employee called to let me know a customer had found the money and turned it into customer service. I was surely shocked, but so happy that there are such good honest people out there still. You could've easily put that money in your pocket, but you didn't. I had only hoped that whoever found the money really needed it this holiday season and had let it go but you turned it around and turned it back in. So thank you! I only wish I knew who you were. Honest Shopper, you've been spotted, and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! :)
