A Sheffield man who lent a penniless Australian tourist 5 to pay for a ferry trip in 1969 has been repaid his debt nearly 40 years later.

While Jim Webb was out, a card and 200 was hand delivered to his home by Gary Fenton, to repay the money he borrowed when they met in Ostend, Belgium.

A note inside read: "To Jim Webb, a good man. From Gary Fenton, a tardy payer of debts."

Heh, awesome.

People keep asking me why I believe in people.

This kind of thing is why. Both what happened forty years ago, and the recent repayment. :)
