After Only Knowing Him For a Few Days, I Knew I Had to Help Him


--by Ado, posted Nov 20, 2017
A new driver started work a couple of days ago. He is an older man who seems to have seen better days in his life. I looked at him and felt that he must have worked at high paying jobs before but that he fell on hard times.

He asked me if I thought that the company would lend him money to pay his rent for the month as he is not able to do that. I told him that it could be worth it to ask my boss. I imagined that my boss would be accepting and say yes.

Lo and behold he did not accept and I was surprised. So I evaluated the situation and felt that this person was a decent man and decided to lend him the money for the rent for the month. I told him not to tell anyone that I did it because I was worried that the other drivers would start asking for money. I also asked him to return the money to me.

He was so kind as to hug me and tell me "of course, he was going to pay me back the money". And he did. I am glad I was able to be there for him when he needed the money although I had only known him for a couple of days.
