Kind Acts

Iím from Philadelphia, which doesnít have the best reputation, but regardless, I had a very good childhood. I have a lot of sisters and a many, many cousins, nephews, etc. I have always been very sheltered and provided for, I would not say spoiled, even though Iím sure my mom and dad would disagree : )
I do not handle change well. I mean I do not even handle ďa change of plansĒ well. I get very stressed out very easily, but ok this is not about meÖ On to my story:
It was about 2 degrees (not exaggerating) outside and I had to go to work, so Iím walking and I finally get to my car and the locks are frozen so while trying to get the doors unlocked I bent my key, I start the car and go to work. When I get out of work I notice that the key was bent, which probably happened when I tried to open my trunk, which was also frozen shut.
So I try to start the car and the key doesnít work. I try again and it doesnít work, so of course, my next thought is to call my dad. I get upset and start crying and itís so cold that the tears are freezing up on my face. Anyways, heís telling me to turn the wheel one way and do all these other things and I feel like Iím going to faint. So itís like 40 minutes that Iím trying to get this car to work, which doesnít seem like itís going to work.
As Iím sitting in the car crying, a man comes up to the window, in an extremely polite manner and asks if he could help. At this point, I canít give him my keys fast enough : ) He assured me numerous times that I could trust him and his intentions werenít bad. He allowed me to sit in his car, with the heat on, while he tried to get my car to work, which he eventually succeeded in doing : )
I donít really write many personal blogs, but that guy has still been on my mind even after a week has past. I do not know his name, but I know that people from everywhere read blogs, so I just wanted to say thank you again, you literally saved me from the freezing cold : ) When I encounter people like him, I wonder why we all canít be like that. If everyone just helped a little, the possibilities would be endless.

I'm glad your story turned out with a good ending, Gina.
