Help on a hot day

IN the midst of May’s heat wave, I set out to buy two kiddie pools for my dogs. I found what I needed at Walmart’s garden centre.

I bought the large pool. No problem, I thought, because I have a mid-sized car. As I was dragging these pools through the parking lot, a lady offered to help me carry them to my car.

Turns out it was a problem: They wouldn’t fit in the back seat.

I was going to tie them to the roof, but the lady who came to my help said, "I’ll just check with my husband. We have a truck and can take them to your house."

Sure enough, this lady and her husband loaded the pools in their truck and took them to my home. I offered them money for their time and gas, but they wouldn’t accept it.

Thank you to this couple, who were so gracious and kind on such a hot day. They went above and beyond being kind to another person. It really restores a person’s faith in the human race.
