Thanks to ‘an­gels in steel-toed boots’

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
