Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Tire-d Kindness

--by kathrynduke, posted Aug 7, 2013
Money was tight- and then one of my tires blew out!   
I managed to pull into a parking lot and park safely before trying to figure out what to do next. A  new tire wasn't exactly in my budget but it was going to have to be worked in somehow. Then there was the additional expense of having to pay someone to come out and fix it.
Another car pulled in right behind me and a man and his young son got out. He offered to change the tire for me, but I told him my spare was in the trunk, already puntured.    
He offered to take me and my spare tire to a repair place just a mile or so away. There they put a new tire on the old rim and he waited for me. Then he took me back to my car and put the new tire on. 
From talking to his son I learned that they had been on the way to the movies. Now they were going to be too late.
I slipped some cash to his son to show my appreciation, but just as I was getting ready to drive away he rushed up to my passenger-side door as if he had something important to tell me. When I rolled down the window he dropped the cash on the seat then waved goodbye to me!
