Teenage girls come to the rescue

I would like to take this opportunity to send a heartfelt thanks to Terrie and her two girlfriends.

I had done a shopping at Safeway (104 Avenue and King George Boulevard) and had stocked up on water, juice – all of the heavy supplies.

My plan was to take the buggy home and return it the next day. This has been my routine for years when doing a heavy shopping. Imagine my surprise when I arrived at  the curb and was unable to budge the buggy.

It would appear that Safeway now has suddenly adopted the policy  of no longer allowing buggies off of their premises (like most other stores).

The three lovely girls (approximately 16 years of age) kindly helped me cart all the groceries two-and-a-half blocks away, right to the door of my 13th-floor apartment.

Who says today’s’ teens lack manners? These young ladies were great!

Thank you again, remember, what goes around, comes around. I hope your parents read this and appreciate how special you are.
