Pete, the generous .
As we were walking back from dinner the other night, Pete is approached by a man looking for some "spare change". So, he digs through his pockets, but at the same time another fellow, who has one of those St. Patrick days hats (the green plastc ones) comes up and asks for "one for St. Patrick".
Pete gives them each a 'toonie' and is about to carry on, when the first guy starts into a long winded story about why he needs $5.00.
Poor Pete listens patiently and finally relents, giving up $3.00 more.
We walk along St. Catherine street a bit further when he turns and says, "Well, it was a good story. And, he did work hard to get me to listen to it".
