Random Act of Kindness

Thursday, March 06, 2014


The big city I live in has the reputation, well-earned. of not being all that friendly. The driving here is fast and furious. So, I wasn't all that surprised when some inconsiderate person who drove an oversized black truck thought that it would be cool to box me totally into my parking space. I just had been to a hard workout at the gym and my arms were too tired to mess around with my wheel. Also, I am not the greatest of parkers. I usually drive into very big spaces.

Lo and behold a chivalrous gentleman spotted my predicament from across the street. He risked his life, literally standing beside my car and directing me out. It wasn't easy and without him I never would have done it. I thanked him but not nearly as much as I should have. I had to get out of there quickly so he could go back to the safety of the sidewalk.

This random act of kindness was incredible and really restored my faith in people. I wish the situation would have allowed me to thank him more profusely.

    Just when you think they have all vanished... a good Samaritan comes to your rescue !!
    It is good to hear they are still alive and well.

    I wanted to post the image of 'Kiss me I'm Irish & Tax me I'm Canadian' ..
    Then ask you if that was an accurate depiction.
    But I couldn't get the image to post here in my comment post.

    Hugs, Audra

    What a great guy! You never know, you may run into him again and get to thank him as you truly wanted to. If not, I have no doubt that he knew how much his actions were appreciated.

    I am sure he knew how relieved and thankful you were and understood the circumstances of getting back to the side of the street. I live near the city of Montreal, and I've have on more than one occasion people bending over backwards to help others.
