Last night I was on the news. Global news did a story on how polite and helpful Vancouverites actually are to tourists. I was walking past the art gallery when I notice a gentlemen with his maps out looking around. Now when I first moved to Vancouver I got lost all the time and if it wasn't for the kindness of others, I would have never found anything. Eight years later, I like to helps other now that I know where everything is. I ask the man if he was looking for something, gave him directions and then was on my way.
6:30pm rolls around and I get a text message from my friend, Shawn. "I saw you on the news, nicely done." Turns out the gentlemen was undercover for Global news and I never guessed.
Check it out at the 22 min mark.
And remember you never know who might need your help next time.
