Thank you for listening

An old man just talked to me at the bus stop. Told me bout some great op shops up the road.

He then said “Thank you for listening”

He continued “I’m 87. Most people think, because I’m old, I’m silly.”

He repeated “Thank you for listening.”

That’s all it takes. And he’s warmed my heart and brought a tear to my eye. Politeness, kindness and a minute out of your day is easy.

  1. Thanks John. Yes they do have such wonderful history and stories to tell.

    It was something I felt I needed to share with you all. I’m glad you enjoyed it so much.
