You Got A Friend In Me

, , , | London, England, UK | Hopeless | April 4, 2016

(It’s 1995 and I’m 15 and going through a very bad time in my life. One day I go into my local cinema just to use the toilet, and as I’m in the foyer about to leave a woman comes up to me.)

Woman: “Excuse me, would you like this ticket to see this new film?”

Me: “I can’t afford to buy that from you, but the box office will give you a refund.”

Woman: “I know, but I’d like you to have it. We have one spare and it’s yours if you want it. You don’t have to give me any money; I just want you to enjoy this film.”

Me: *almost at the point of tears, at this generosity* “Well, thank you. Thank you so much!”

(The film was ‘Toy Story.’ Lady, it’s been twenty years, but you showed me how a simple act of kindness can make someone’s life so much better. Thank you.)
