I stumbled across this blog today
and was challenged to actually put this next entry into blogland.
Last week my best Jamaican girlfriend came back from Abu Dhabi for the summer vacation with her children. She has been away for 6months.
Naturally I rushed over to see her and family and ended up taking her out to run some errands. On one of the stops we were so taken up in the chatter that I never even realized it, but scrunch I had reversed onto an embankment, one of my wheels was literally spinning on air. In a borrowed car no less (I have no a/c in my car and it was too hot to think much less drive). Of course, I panicked and we looked around for any one to help and at first there was no one. I silently wondered- God what am I to do?
Then this car drives up, a guy steps out and asks are you ladys ok.? And I am like NO we are stuck !!!!
And he calmly comes over to the car, looks over the situation, asks for the jack, moved around some stones and got my car off the embankment. No chats , no lyrics And then when I asked him what he wanted in return his response- I just like helping women !!! And he said have a good day and left. I was shocked because I have found in recent times that most people want something and nothing is ever for free. BUT I was happy to catch a glimpse of the good side of humanity and that I was able to partake in such a genuine act of kindness.
