Then something magical happened.

The lady said that she really missed hanging out with her friends when she was that age. So, Mahri asked if she wanted to join her crew for the night - and she did.

"This lady in the washroom looking at me said: 'I remember when my girlfriends and I would get dressed up and go out, I miss that,'" wrote Mahri on Twitter.

"So I said 'Why miss it, we’re all out right now aren’t we?' Short story, we have a new friend."

The post has had over 260,000 likes, and it has been warming the hearts of people all over the internet.
