Last time I posted, I wrote about the kindness of strangers while I've been juggling mobility aids and doors. This morning, especially, people were so incredibly nice, and I just want to give a shout out to them.
On my way to work this morning, I stopped at the Racine Washington Avenue Starbucks for my beloved coffee. When I got out of my car to go inside, a man who was already at the door and about to go inside stood there and held the door while I walked from my car - not a long distance, but certainly enough of a time gap that no one would have faulted him for going inside and leaving me to fend for myself. As I entered the vestibule, another exiting man opened the inside door for me and let me go by. And then, as I was leaving, a third man got up from his table, opened the inner door, waited til I grabbed it, then went out and opened the exterior door for me to leave.
So, thanks, Starbucks Customer Dudes. You all totally made my morning, just by being kind.
