Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Just A Cell Phone

--by Purabi Das, posted Feb 24, 2007
A few years ago I was driving to an interview which was supposed to start at 9:00am.

I had the address, but somehow just could not find it. After two or three attempts, it was now 8:55 am, I pulled into an office building and discovered I was not far from my destination.

I was panicking since my interview and was rushing out when I was stopped by a man coming out of that building. He must have seen the panic in my eyes and offered me his cellphone so I could call and explain.

If it had not been for this kind stranger I would have made a very bad impression at the interview. I did get the job and I wish I could have thanked the gentleman but in the stress I was under I never thought of getting his name.

reminds me of a beautiful quote from The Prophet:
"it is nice to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked through understanding"
