Yesterday me & my boyfriend walked down to the local garage to get some batteries & there was a woman , broken down, on the phone to somebody saying "no It's a flat tyre, (husband) has had a drink so he can't fetch me, I don't know what to do".
My boyfriend stopped, walked over to her and asked her if she wanted some help and offered to change her tyre for her. She sounded so surprised and said "yeah, but you look young" (he's 18) but let him anyway, she was a nurse at the local hospital & had just finished a 12 hour shift and just wanted to get home, have a glass of wine & watch corro!
James changed her wheel after a few problems, she thanked him & offered him £20 for helping her, he said no, that he couldn't accept it, he was only helping and walked off to put the tools back in her car for her. She gave me the £20 note and said "you want to marry him, he's a keeper, give him this, he's lovely"
I was so proud of him for being such a kind, lovely person. Theres not many of them around these days and I'm so glad I've got a person like this in my life.
When we walked away I said "aw James that was lovely, you're such an angel" and he said
"if you do good things, then good things will come back to you"
The day before James' car had broken down so thats why we had to walk, as he's only an apprentice he doesn't earn much & we had been talking about not using his car as much so he could save more money as he had some things to pay for & christmas was coming up etc.
So by his car breaking down we were there at the right time to help the lady (I'd like to call her Mary, she looked like a Mary!) by his car breaking down he came into money that he needed & by his car breaking down it showed there are still lovely, caring people around..you just have to find them, wierd..huh!?
