Spotting others being helpful

Friday afternoon, around 4 pm, I was in the far right-hand lane on Market Street, waiting to turn right onto 19th Street. As the light changed, I inched up, waiting for the pedestrians to clean the crosswalk before turning (because despite what others say, you get no points if you take out a person). As I pulled through, I noticed a blind woman standing with a tall, white cane, looking as if she needed to cross the street. A man wearing a backpack and a grey sweatshirt also noticed her, as he crossed the street. I pulled onto 19th Street, and glanced into the rearview mirror in time to see him cross back and approach the woman to offer his assistance.

I didn’t have the opportunity to compliment him on his kindness like the woman did for me last week, so I thought I’d do it virtually in the public forum of the Metblog. So, to the man wearing the backpack in the grey sweatshirt who was crossing 19th Street at 4 pm on Friday, April 27th, that was a really nice thing to do. Good job.
