when I left work yesterday at 6, I knew that my car battery is dead, but I was hoping to be able to push it a bit in order to make the engine run so that I could take it home. Unfortunatly the street was almost flat. I find a hard time to push it.
A man came to help me in my attempt of pushing it. I didn’t ask for his help, but was happy to see people rushing to help each other. He offered his help. I told him that I don’t want to bother him, but he insisted. My car didn’t work, but I felt that in reality there are still people who are willing to help each other without anything in return.
After a while, another guy came to my aid, but this one I know. He works with me, and was about to leave work as well. He noticed me struggling with the car, so he parked his, and started pushing along with me.
It didn’t help as well, so he offered to ride me hope. I didn’t want to bother him, but he insisted. And so, he preceeded me back to his car which he parked few meters back in the same street while I made sure to lock my car then followed him.
I was so tired and disoriented. It was dark. I walked and reached the car, I opened the door and sat in the seat next to the driver. I heared a female voice saying “Yes Sir?!”, I didn’t know where it came from, so I turned my head to the driver seat and I found an old man! It wasn’t my friend, it was an old man looking at me in shock of how I dare to open his car door and sit next to him!
In a blink of a second I realized that I have done a mistake. I felt so embarrassed and was about to fall down laughing. I apologized. I said “sorry” three times very fast while opened the door and left noticing that there was as well a nanny with a child in the backseat of his car!
How didn’t I notice all of that? I don’t know. I now remember that incident and laugh, hopeing that it wouldn’t happen again!
