Kudos & Kindeness: Thanking a good Samaritan

On Sunday, March 2, at 7 p.m. I came out of Raley’s in the rain with a full basket of groceries and found a card stuck in my driver side window saying I had a large nail or screw in my right rear tire and it was leaking badly. I made it home and called AAA to come out and put on my spare until I could get it repaired on Monday. (It turns out it was a very large bolt and was going flat for sure.)

If this person hadn’t taken the time to be a good Samaritan, I would have backed out of the garage early this morning only to find a flat tire. I called to thank him and all he asked is I pay it forward. So besides making sure I do that, I want to publicly thank Scott Mara from Good Dog dog training for taking the time to stand in the rain and check my tire to make sure he could hear it leaking, then take the time to write me a note. I can’t express my gratitude.

Thanks again, Scott; not everyone would have taken the time to do that. I am very grateful for your kindness.
