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” Meme
