“Old lady” thanks young man

  • Print

I spun out on westbound Bishop Grandin. My jeep ended up stuck in the snow on the median between Pembina Highway and Waverley Street.

A young man in a black truck towing a white trailer, passed me, turned around at the light and came back to dig me out.

This gentleman then stopped traffic so I could get back on the road and turn to face in the direction of traffic.

Before I could get over to the shoulder to thank him for his help, he spotted another car sliding off the road and headed out to assist.

I just wanted to say how much I appreciated his help as I have a disability and would have waited hours for a tow truck.

Many folks say young people are only concerned with themselves, but this "old lady" really admired the community spirit shown to me.

So whoever you were, thanks from the lady in the red JEEP Liberty.
