Exceptionally thoughtful young man.

7 replies 1.1K views
Supermarket carpark. Enormous bang from offside front of car and car lurches down. A young man hears the noise and expresses concern.
We drive home very tentatively and young man, unbeknown to us, follows to make sure we are okay.
So worried. We didn't thank him enough, but we are very grateful and blessed for his kindness and care.
Turned out to be a broken coil/spring and fixed by our garage in a day.
What a lovely young man.

    I thought someone was calling out to me because they were jogging and wanted to overtake me. In fact I'd dropped a credit card which they wanted to return to me.

    I realised I'd also lost my bank card - everything had fallen out of my phone case. Sadly that had been picked up and misused but was blocked before I'd finished phoning to report its loss
    Still knitting!

    Sorry that someone misused your card, but what a good person that was who stopped you and let you know know your phone was shedding cards.
    There are so many good people in this world.
    I lost my wallet  last year because I left it on the car roof. A lovely man drove 13 miles to my home (driving licence card with address) and gave it back to me intact with £20 in it. I tried to given him the £20 but he wouldn't take it.
    Angels every where, despite the few naughty ones.

    They are everywhere, being kind, being considerate, helping others. Making a difference in the world. 
    But reporting it doesn't sell newspapers.
