Hey there, time traveller!

LAST month, I was on my way back to Winnipeg from Winkler. I was driving along Highway 23 when the ride got very bumpy.
I realized to my dismay I had a flat tire. Since I have no idea how to change a tire, I drove on very slowly, hoping to reach a service station in Morris, which was not too far away. However, it wasn’t long before a truck driver made a U-turn on the highway and flagged me down. He had the tire changed in a short time, and I made it safely back to Winnipeg. He would not accept any payment. His name was Joe Anderson, and he lived on a farm nearby.
Thank you very much, Joe Anderson, for your kindness. I shall try to pay it forward.
