Fought off mos­qui­toes to do kind act

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

I WAS at a gas sta­tion on Tay­lor Av­enue and didn’t no­tice a man parked next to me who was try­ing to get my at­ten­tion.

Only when I was get­ting into my car to drive off did the man stop me and tell me that my tire was com- pletely flat. Upon see­ing my panic, he sug­gested I pump up the tire, since I was at the gas sta­tion, so I could drive it home.

Be­ing a new young driver, I did not know the first thing about how to go about pump­ing my tire to the right pres­sure.

This kind man then of­fered to do it for me. He not only pro­ceeded to fill the one flat tire but checked all the other tires for me, all the while be­ing eaten alive by mos­qui­toes.

I do not know this gen­tle­man’s name, but his time, ef­fort and kind­ness is some­thing I still ap­pre­ci­ate to this day.

I wish I could have another op­por­tu­nity to truly thank him.
