Kindness of the man at Oliver Square

This guy in a red Older ford, you made my night. Money’s been rough lately. I’ve been depressed on and off after a suicidal attempt and living. My heart was used and broken by someone I deeply loved for 6 years. The economy being down. Etc. Also ongoing struggles with my mental health. I was crying a little.

Taking a walk around. This guy pulls up and says “let me buy you a coffee” and I say “why?” Being skeptical as a I am of men, being a girl. He says “ah I just like the way you dress”. I’m in winter clothes and baggy sweats, no makeup, hair in a bun, scarf and huge boots. I think he could see it in my face or something, but sir.

Whoever you are. Thank you for the money. Life’s been rough and this helped more than I can say. Now I can buy some food! Thank you kind sir. Whoever you are. In the red pickup. This was October 28th around 8:25 ish in Oliver Square. I’m blown away.

    It sounds like a total lure! Thank God you never got in the truck or let him have time with your coffee!!
    If he wheels past your again, don’t be lured!!!

    Beautiful story! I’m going out of my way to do do a big random act of kindness today in honour of the thoughtful stranger in the red pickup! Pass it on, and have a great day!
