Jamie here. I wanted to do a different post today but am having trouble with %@#$**&^$#@#^&* loading of pictures.
AHEM so as briefly as I am able to relate this story, here goes. Several months ago I was putting gas in my car. I was approached by a man and a woman. Nope they were not looking spiffy, and I noticed they had a small dinged up car. (I'm not good at telling what kind of a car one is but this one was reddish)
In a nutshell, they were trying to get home to Arlington and the tank was on empty, something about their money being stolen. Well, I said let me see what I have. (I usually don't have much if any cash on me.)
I found(with change) $5.75 Told them I'm sorry it's all I've got. They thanked me effusively. Then I saw the woman going in to give the money. Along the way she asked others and I saw she was striking out. By now, my car is finished and I started to get into my car.
Well, I'm thinking how the heck far are they going to get on that. Got out of my car, went over to the guy and said, look I'm putting gas in your car with my card. Again, God Bless, Thank You. etc. So, I filled his tank. While they each gave me a hug, I just asked them to pay it forward if they ever had the chance.
I've been told by some that was stupid to do. "You don't have money to throw around like that. Yeah, I'll bet they "lost" their money...etcetc. " They may be right , BUT My thought is if you try to help with good intentions, that is what matters. And I still think someday some help will come to me when I need it....karma
So what do you think? What would you have done.
Now to figure out what the &*&^^%%$#@$^&* is the problem with pics. Dang it.
Have a great one,
Jamie (who doesn't think she was a "sucker" :)
