    I was driving home from work this evening and traffic was heavy as usual, and just as I was getting into the first town I have to drive through before I get home I realized I had a flat tire. Luckily I was in the right hand lane, so I pulled into to the Walgreen's parking lot and parked and got out of my car to take a look. Sure enough, it was flat as a pancake. Just as I was about to call my husband to come and help me change the tire, this young 20 something young man walks up and asks me if I would need help with changing the tire. It turns out he was behind me in traffic and when he saw I had a flat, he pulled out of traffic and stopped to help. He said it was his Christian duty to help others. How wonderful is that! :D

    But wait, it gets better. After I get to my home town I stop at the local tire shop where we usually take our business and have the tire fixed. When the guys there are finished, they tell me no charge today! I asked, what is the occasion, that there is no charge for the tire repair. The guy at the shop said, times are too tough for everyone, and they just want their customers to have the money they need to buy gas.

    Now how cool is that? :D There are still some good people in the world.....besides all you guys here on this board. It makes my heart warm to think about it. :-D :-D

    Hi MissM,

    I'm so glad you had a blessed day with your flat tire. What a wonderful good deed by the young fella to help you get the tire switched out.

    I just wanted to share that one of our local tire store companies provides this policy for tires bought at their store. This has saved me several times. Once even just a week after getting a new tire. I make sure to get all my tires there and I sure share their company name with everyone I know.

    Wonderful! It is so nice once in a while to hear of good deeds done by our fellow humans, when most of the news is so sad and grim. To know that there are people out there who will help when it is needed. Just makes a perfect ending to my day. Thanks for sharing your blessings with us.
