One Sunday morning, at the Night Owl service station on New Cleveland Road, I was waiting for a pump to become available. As it became vacant, another customer came from the other side of the servo and obviously didn’t see me waiting, and the driver began filling their vehicle. Another pump became available adjacent to the pump and the driver, a young lady, apologised for taking the pump. I told her not to worry about it and she apologised again.
When I went in to pay for my fuel ($50.00), the attendant said it had been paid for by the young lady. Fortunately when I got outside she was just getting into her car and I was able to thank her for her kindness. I was absolutely blown away; unfortunately this is far from our now expected “normal”.
I would like to say, publicly, a heartfelt “thank you” to this unknown young lady.
