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.
