humansofnewyork: “Nobody would give us a chance.  We were in our early twenties.  We had two young kids.  We were working, but living check to check.  At the time we were staying in the projects with my mother-in-law, but my kids were growing up, so we needed our own place.  But all the rental brokers wanted to see our bank statements.  And we had no savings.  We didn’t even have accounts.  Then one day I was walking down the avenue, and I saw a super fixing up an empty apartment.  I told him I needed to speak to the landlord directly.  No brokers.  And I guess he liked my vibe, because he gave me the name: Ronald Petrowski.  When I called Mr. Petrowski, I explained everything.  I told him we needed a chance.  He agreed to meet me and my husband at Lenny’s Pizzeria.  He bought us a plain pie and listened to our story.  He’d grown up poor himself, so he knew the struggle.  And he gave us a chance.  We’ve been in that apartment for 35 years now, and I’ve paid him every cent.  We’ve fallen on hard times.  At one point I owed him an entire year of rent.  But he was so gracious.  He never sent us an eviction notice.  Every time he came to collect, he’d sit at our kitchen table, have a cup of coffee, and listen to our situation.  Mr. Petrowski is my hero.  He sold the building a couple years ago, but we still keep in touch.  That man gave me a home to raise my children.”: C humansofnewyork: “Nobody would give us a chance.  We were in our early twenties.  We had two young kids.  We were working, but living check to check.  At the time we were staying in the projects with my mother-in-law, but my kids were growing up, so we needed our own place.  But all the rental brokers wanted to see our bank statements.  And we had no savings.  We didn’t even have accounts.  Then one day I was walking down the avenue, and I saw a super fixing up an empty apartment.  I told him I needed to speak to the landlord directly.  No brokers.  And I guess he liked my vibe, because he gave me the name: Ronald Petrowski.  When I called Mr. Petrowski, I explained everything.  I told him we needed a chance.  He agreed to meet me and my husband at Lenny’s Pizzeria.  He bought us a plain pie and listened to our story.  He’d grown up poor himself, so he knew the struggle.  And he gave us a chance.  We’ve been in that apartment for 35 years now, and I’ve paid him every cent.  We’ve fallen on hard times.  At one point I owed him an entire year of rent.  But he was so gracious.  He never sent us an eviction notice.  Every time he came to collect, he’d sit at our kitchen table, have a cup of coffee, and listen to our situation.  Mr. Petrowski is my hero.  He sold the building a couple years ago, but we still keep in touch.  That man gave me a home to raise my children.”

browsedankmemes: Men talking about the women they love via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2ZuCMd2: GrizFyrFyter1 102d My wife never finished a cup of coffee or a cup of tea if didn't make it for her. . I asked about it t once and her response was "it just taste better when you make it". Always makes me feel better seeing an empty cup. the_dapper_minion 102d I often come to bed after her, and she's a pretty heavy sleeper. Without fail, I'll get settled in to bed and she does what I call the reach. Where she'll start swatting around to find me. Once a body part is located she attempts to crawl into my skin. All while asleep. Lol most nights I just lay there and kinda chuckle. It's the little things. Mitz_Fitz 103d Destroyed my knee a couple years ago in a dirt bike accident. On the bad days she will rub balm on it and lightly sing to me. Soothes all the anger and pain I have. God I'm lucky. Thanks for reminding me wardog1066 102d 3 1 Award Not so grand as some of the gestures noted here, but when my wife and I go shopping and get separated we will find each other again and she always smiles when she sees me. Sometimes I'll wander off just so we can bump into each other and I get to see that smile. I've never told her this for fear she will become aware of it and stop.28 years and she still smiles when she sees me. I get misty if I think too hard about it. browsedankmemes: Men talking about the women they love via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2ZuCMd2
