Kindness of Strangers

We were in Saskatchewan last weekend to attend my dad's home town centennial celebration. When it was time to head home I drove to the next little town for gas.
After a quick 5 minutes drive around I realised the only gas station was the Co-op Card lock.
I rechecked the gas gauge and had a quarter tank so I knew I could get to the nearest city about an half hour drive out of my way.
I decided to drive down to the local hotel to see if anyone would help me out.
Sure enough a stranger was willing to offer the use of his card.
So it was back to the card lock with our new found friend to gas up.
After a brief chat while gassing up and an payment of cash to cover the use of his card we were once again on our way.

Stories like that are nice. I try to help someone out as much as I can, because I hope when I'm in need of help, I hope someone helps me.


Thanks for sharing!!

I also try and help out when someone is in need. I've stopped on the side of the road and changed a lot of tires for ladies by themselves or, before everyone had them, let them use my cell phone if they were too nervous to let a stranger change the tire. Don't do it as much anymore though, might still change my own if I had too but I'm leaving that mostly to younger men now. Pay it forward is a good idea.

Hey us Saskatchewan people are great! I kid, I kid.
Seriously though, it's amazing the things they'll do in a small town in this province. Many times garage owners will come open up if you've had a breakdown. And yet, I remember once being stuck on the highway outside of Humboldt when my alternator/battery died. Car after car, even ones with three guys in it wouldn't stop. Then suddenly a nice woman and her elderly Mother stopped to help. (I was of course a young guy with long hair so surprised they would stop) I was completely shocked.
