Dead car (almost) hero

Posted on Mon, Jun 11, 2012 at 12:59 PM

Dear boy who (almost) helped me when my car died in the middle of Quinpool yesterday: Thank you for your willingness to help a girl in distress. I yelled to you on the street and you could have ignored me while I was panicking in the middle of the street, but you leaped into action and ran to the gas station to ask for help without delay. My car finally started while you were asking for help, and I had to zoom away as I was holding up a considerable amount of traffic. THANK YOU. And I shall be paying it forward as soon as I get the chance. —Damsel in Distress
