Yep. The J at the Quincy exit. I was heading to Mossy Head at exit 70.

Most of our HP's are nice folks. A friend is a retired FHP turned minister.

This is very similar but the final ending is a little different. A teacher friend and wife heading to CO stopped for a pit stop. The DW was sleeping in the back. He asked her if she needed to get out and she said no. He did his thing and headed down the road. Seventy or so miles down the road a ST stops him and asks if he knew where his DW was. He said she's in the back sleeping. Well she wasn't so he headed back to get her at the RA.

Every fall all the teacher in our districy, about 1,000t had a breakfast. the superintendent proceeded to relate the story of how Harold left his DW at a rest area during their summer vacation.

Life is full of surprises.

Must be a Florida thing. Last winter I saw a Monroe County sheriff changing a tire for a lady.

When I was in the drive through for a coffee at one of the local Tim Hortons I noticed a police car behind me in the line up. When I got to the pay window, I said to the cashier "I'll pay for his order behind me". I gave her my business card to give him and asked her to tell him "This is a random act of kindness, please pay it forward". I actually do this often to people behind me in the line up. Makes you feel good to knowingly put a smile on someone's face and make their day.

A month later, I got pulled over for speeding. The policeman took my DL and Reg and went back to his vehicle. A few moments later, he came back to my truck and said" Thanks for the coffee and please slow down" and sent me on my way.

I have to add one here . . . this was something we witnessed the first part of and it was intentional, not accidental!

Several years ago travelling eastbound on the Mass Pike from NY we saw an older couple yelling at one another in the parking lot of a service area . . . the guy jumps in the car and tears off leaving the woman standing there. The exits are few and far between in that part of the state . . . I just looked at the map and did the math, IF he calmed down in the first 2 miles and exited and looped around the get her he only had a 25 mile trip back to the service area. If he was still steaming and blew by the first exit he had 30 miles to cool down till he reached the next one which would mean about a 85 mile total detour . . . I'll never know how it turned out . . . did he go back?? . . . what was her mood when he got there??

Good thing you gave out the business card. people who get card in that manner will NOT forget the act of kindness. and probably will pass it on.

Quite a few years ago we were at the desk regestering for the night at a CG. This man comes in looking tired and asked for a pull-thru for the night. The clerk asked if his wife was driving their towed. The man said no its hooked to the MH, clerk said no car out there. I thought the man was going to faint. He left and returned a few hours later_with his towed, which had very little damage when we looked it over next morning. His break-away unit had functioned properly and he found the car sitting beside the highway about 20 miles back.
That is why I always leave the backup camera on while driving.

Last year, on an outing with our RV club, we were all standing around ready to head out. When the time came to leave, we all hopped in our rigs and hit the road. One of our guys wasn't paying too much attention. He go in the rig, started up and hit the road. A few miles down the road his cell phone rings. Hi picks it up and his wife is on the other end. Why is she calling my cell from the bedroom, he wonders. Turns out she is calling from another rig. He totally forgot her when he left, and she caught a ride with someone else. So it all turned out good, but it will be a long time before he lives that down.
