"This morning while waiting for the subway to leave Finch station, a Latino guy entered the train looking very angry and irritated. Sitting down in front of me, he was holding his head and kept saying 'OH GOD.'

The Russian guy sitting beside him asked if everything was okay, in a pretty heavy accent. He said he has a horrible headache and is running late for an interview. Overhearing the conversation, I offered him Advil (cause let's face it, I don't leave my house without it!). He took it and thanked me but said he doesn't have water so he'll have it later.

The middle eastern woman sitting beside me wearing a hijab, took out a juice box from her kid's backpack and gave it to him telling him that if he takes it now he'll feel better by the time he gets to the interview. He started thanking all of us for helping him out and said he's nervous for the interview.

The Russian told him to walk in confidently and to tie his hair back if he can.

A Chinese teenager sitting on his other side, handed him a hair tie saying she has a million of them.

I told him if he gets in late, to apologize but not bring excuses. Nobody likes excuses.

The Muslim lady told him to smile a lot, people trust easier when you smile.

We got to his station, wished him good luck and off he went.

Now if THIS isn't the ultimate Canadian experience short of a beaver walking into a bar holding a jar of maple syrup, I don't know what is!"

Hamidi told CBC Toronto that the subway ride moved her and that she's happy so many others get to hear her story.
