ON Thursday last week, I had occasion to visit FNB bank in Boom Street.
At both the inquiry counter and the tellers (I use a walking stick), both queues of people stood aside and insisted that this old man go to the front of the queues.
What a pleasant surprise that the old Pietermaritzburg courtesy and friendliness that I grew up with was still alive and ticking.
Such a change from all the depressing news going around today.
So my heartfelt thanks to all those who were involved in these gestures.
Very much appreciated.
