Was there no one in the line – up to give/loan this woman a single dime?
Is the fare taker, a well paid union employee (as I once was) so heartless that she wouldn’t cough it up herself? This is really pathetic…why not have a small coin box for just these situations (like most retail stores do) so that no one has to be humiliated or inconvenienced…and BC Ferries, if this is indeed your ironclad policy, you are looking worse than ever…didn’t think that was possible…
I once was behind a woman with a little girl in a produce store, and the child had picked up an apple that her mum didn’t have quite enough to pay for, along with her other groceries…a difference of 24 cents…the cashier was really snotty about it, and I gave her a quarter to cover the apple…effusive thanks from the mum, dirty looks from the cashier…sometimes it’s a sad world we’re living in…
