$10 Car Ride
I was driving home and saw a car on the side of the road. I stopped to ask them if they needed help. They eagerly said that they did. I assumed it would be a simple jump, but they had a blown hose. I didn’t know what I could do for them. They were trying to get to the mortuary right down road. I told them I knew where it was and they asked if I could take them there. I agreed. They pulled their car into the nearby parking lot and got into my car. I am always cautious though, I had my knife easily assessable because there are so many scammers and crazy people now-a-days. I was happy that this guy and two older ladies were friendly. The one lady handed me some money, but I told her it was fine and I didn’t want it. She insisted, saying it was the least she could do since I saved them from missing their chance to say goodbye to their loved one. They were pretty grateful and I headed home. The irony of the situation was that I was listening to The Funeral by Band of Horses as I drove up to their car and minutes later I was driving them to a funeral. Life is full of surprises and today has been a very busy and eventful day.
