I was busy and my mind was constantly thinking about the next thing. Over the next month I must have left my cash at the cash machine on 4 occasions, on 2 of which I ran straight back to it but on one occasion I had completely forgotten and walked to the next shop. Then as I walked back to the car, an elderly gentleman approached me and asked if I had left £20 at the machine. It suddenly dawned on me that I had, I was overwhelmed by his kindness, he said he had tried to chase after me but I was too fast, we stood and chatted for a while, he reminded me of my Grandad. What luck I had, that such an honest man was standing behind me. Still makes me smile today!
