Tony - A Recipient of Random Acts of Kindness
I have been the recipient of 4 random acts of kindness. Here is each story
1) I had had lunch in Burger King and after I had eaten, I went to my car in the parking lot and discovered I had a flat tire. A guy who was in his car saw that I had a flat tire and he immediately came to my aid. “Hey, I got this”, he had a portable tire inflating device and added air in my tire so I could drive it to a repair shop
2) I was ill with pneumonia and had an appointment to see my family doctor. I decided to leave early enough so that I could stop and have breakfast prior to my appointment. I go into a fast-food restaurant and order my breakfast. The assistant manager who took my order stated “I got this one. That is, he insisted on paying for my breakfast.
3) I was walking my dog in the summertime. Suddenly, a short but intense thundershower began. A woman who was in her garage (her garage door was open) invited my dog and me to come into her garage and take shelter during the thundershower
4) I was a visiting Reykjavik, Iceland. One evening I was walking back to the condo unit where I was staying. It was dark and the street was covered with snow and was also very icy and, I slipped and fell on the street. It was an easy fall, that is I was not hurt at all. I got up from my fall and a gentleman who was walking behind me quickly came up to me to check that I was ok. I thanked him and stated that I was fine. Shortly after that visit, the driver of a small pickup truck who was also behind me also stopped to check that I was ok.
