Letter: Thanks to young man for kindness

I would like to offer a profound thank you to the pleasant young Coast Guard employee that I was in line with at Wembley Mall Subway on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

I did not get his name or he mine. I was just behind this young man in the lineup and there were several people in the lineup ahead of us, which gave us time to have a short conversation.

I followed him with my order as he progressed down the line to have his order filled. Naturally he left before I arrived at the cashier’s till. When I went to pay for my two, 12-inch subs, the cashier said they were already paid for. That young man had paid for my wife’s and my supper.

Such an act of kindness should not go unmentioned, hence my letter to the PQB news.

Hopefully I will get the opportunity to pass on this act of kindness to someone else. Again, thank you young man for setting such a wonderful example of kindness.

Ron Sodmont
