Thanks to ‘angels in steel-toed boots’
I always read the Random Acts of Kindness section of the Saturday paper and marvel at the kindness of people. Recently, we were the recipients of one such act.
My husband and I, in our mid 70s, were driving with another couple (a little younger than we are), to Winnipeg from Kenora for medical appointments.
Just before we got to the floodway bridge, we got a flat tire. It was the first time we had a flat tire in ages. Changing tires just isn’t as easy as it used to be.
As traffic zoomed by, the guys managed to jack the car up, and remove the lug nuts. When they tried to remove the wheel, it wouldn’t budge.
At that moment, a half-ton truck pulled up behind us. Two young men jumped out and asked if we needed help. Within minutes they had kicked off the tire and replaced it with the spare using their own equipment. They conveniently happened to have all the right tools.
When my husband offered them a monetary thank you they totally refused, wished us a good day, and left.
These two angels in steel-toed boots from Focal Point Home Improvement saved our day and we can’t thank them enough. By the way, we got to our appointments on time.
