Unexpected Opportunity

The random act of kindness I chose to do was transport someone who can’t drive. While this was not an act I was planning on doing, it happened out of nowhere. I had been planning on cleaning a friend's house, but a new opportunity presented itself. I was dropping a friend off at home after lacrosse practice when I noticed that one of my teammates was on the side of the road. It was clear that his car had broken down. While I was in a sort of rush to get home to eat dinner, I decided it would be heartless of me to not help. After about fifteen minutes of trying to jumpstart his car, we realized it was hopeless. I felt really awful that he had to go through this so I offered to take him home. He was really appreciative of the ride and I felt good about myself. It took awhile to get to his home and back, so I missed dinner with my family, but the positives definitely outweighed the negatives. I felt good about helping a teammate and he was happy to be able to get home.
