Four Girls Who Pushed My Car
--by justoneheart, posted Sep 18, 2007
I started off in my jalopy of a car. The thought to get gas crossed my mind, but I ignored it, wanting to be punctual. I was cruising down the freeway when I realized there was no way I would make it and should pull off at the next exit to get gas. Well that next exit was quite a few miles and as I got off my car sputtered to a stop. I restarted it and it went another block, so I could see the station now!
With the car dead in the lane I became frantic! I was all dressed up in a skirt and high heels; and blocking traffic! I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a big SUV behind me.
The doors swung open and out popped 4 teenage girls, about 16 years old. They came up to my window and asked if they could help. I gratefully accepted. I put the car in nuetral and they pushed and pushed all the way up to the pump! It was no easy task let me tell you! I thanked them profusely and they just smiled and said no problem. I offered to pay them and they declined hopped in their car and headed on their way.
I got my gas and got back on my way. I was quite late, but the story made for a great conversation with my date. I was in a wonderful mood, having been given a random act of kindness. It just goes to show that the youth are more than just the stories you hear on the nightly news. Our world is filled with sweet souls, they just usually don't make the headlines.
