Yesterday, before an appointment, I stopped off at a Second Cup for a chai latte.

When I went to pay, I discovered that my wallet wasn't in my purse. I panicked.

"Oh my gosh, where's my wallet?"

I told the woman behind me in line to go ahead as I searched frantically for it. And came up empty-handed.

She paid for my latte.
And offered me money if I needed it. And a ride home or to work or wherever I might have lost my wallet.

I thanked her, but I had tokens in my pocket (BTW: price goes up on Monday so stock up!) so I told her I was OK.

But I thought it was the nicest thing that anyone in Toronto had ever done for me.

It renewed my faith that there can be good people in the city.

I went home and discovered that I'd left my wallet beside my computer the night before when I was paying my bills online. Duh.

Thank you to the nice lady at the Mount Pleasant Second Cup.
