Fri­day the 13th not so bad af­ter all

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

I HAD a doc­tor’s ap­point­ment Fri­day, Dec. 13, so I should have ex­pected trou­ble. I parked on the lot be­side the clinic. Two hours — and some un­favourable news from my doc­tor — later, I made my way back to my car and no­ticed the flash­ers were on, very dimly. The car would not start. Check­ing for my wal­let, I re­al­ized I had left it at home. All the while, it was get­ting in­creas­ingly colder out­side. Fri­day the 13th, right? I phoned Crane Tow­ing and pleaded my case to Jen­nifer. I of­fered to go there and pay for a boost ASAP. To my sur­prise she said I’d caught her on a “good day,” and she was send­ing some­one out im­me­di­ately. Her only re­quest was that I pay it for­ward. Within 10 min­utes I was on my way. At home I was able to digest my doc­tor’s news and Jen­nifer’s kind­ness and was so over­come with sad­ness and hap­pi­ness that I started to cry. A huge thank you to Jen­nifer and all the staff at Crane Tow­ing.
