My faith in the human race has just jumped to the highest level and it is all due to a very kind person at this lovely bar.
Over 2 weeks ago I visited The Yard and as always had a great time, the staff are friendly, the beer is reasonable priced and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. I left the bar and was devastated when on my journey home I released my purse was no longer in my bag. I am afraid to say I automatically thought the worse and thought that it had been stolen. The bar is a busy place in the heart of Soho and as sad as it sounds pickpockets are often about in the area. Add in the fact that it’s a big purse, I just couldn’t see how I could have dropped it or let it slip out of my bag without me noticing.
As with many females my purse contains far too much ‘stuff’, but to me having pictures of my nieces and nephews, a memory mass card of my mum who died many years ago, a list of my Dads current tables to hand over at the next doctor’s appointment, plus driving license, credit cards etc. etc. are things I want to have with me at all times.
So why is my faith restored? last night I received a parcel from some kind person from The Yard with my purse and all its contents (including cash) still inside. There was no note so I can’t thank anyone personally but this person paid to return the purse to me special delivery, (ensuring it would arrive safely) and I can honestly say this amazed me.
I was so touched at this action that words cannot really explain the sheer gratitude and wonderful feeling that it has given me, there really are still kind honest people in this world and whoever you are Thank you thank you thank you. The next time I am in town I will be sure to come back to The Yard for a drink and offer you my thanks in person.
How honest a pub / bar can you get.
