Life Story

Jul 16th, 2010 // In: I Gave A Card // By: Comments 0

When I was in town I (unusually) decided to buy a Big Issue before getting a coffee with friends and then heading home. As I bought it the guy mumbled something about a life story inside.

As we ordered our coffee’s my friends insisted on paying and as we waited I began flicking through my Big Issue. To my suprise I saw the guy I had bought my Big Issue from and it contained his life story. It was inspiring and almost made me cry.

As I headed to the tram I wrapped an ilovemygen card in a £5 note and as I walked past slipped into his hand and told him to go and get a coffee on me.

He studied the card for a long time and as the tram pulled away he had a big smile on his face and waved. It was nice!!!
