(Relationship post in the works, A has been over a lot when I get off work so I've been busy with her, sorry!)
On the way home from work and picking up A I noticed a guy off to the side of the road fixing the grass/trash near our house. It was hot, he was all alone, probably mid-aged. I called M and had him meet me at the driveway with a bottle of cold water because I was going to go take it to him. He said I was crazy but off I went with my cold water. I pulled over and told him I just wanted to tell him 'thanks' for caring about the neighborhood and I gave him the water. He said I was too sweet and to go get my gloves and come back and help. I laughed and told him I would have, if I didn't have the baby!
It's just simple things like that. It didn't "cost" me anything, but I know the guy was apperciative. It's a far cry from last weekend when I needed help!
Last Friday (before sickfest #2058 for 2007 began), my car wouldn't start up at the local grocery store. I literally asked 7 people if they would jump start me (I had the cables in my hand!), and they all had excuses. I was upset with the human race for those 30 minutes. I was all alone and needed help and everyone had a fucking excuse. I finally got ahold of M and he was on his way, when a guy parked infront of me. I kindly asked him to move to the next parking spot because my car was broke down but my spouse was on his way to help since I couldn't get anyone there to help. He said he wouldn't move because he was going to help. He said in today's day and age it didn't suprise him noone helped.
But he did help, and Thank you mister!
Tomorrow, see what you can do for someone out-of-the-blue. I dare you.
