When I was working for a Company that paint lines on the road in the 90s somewhere out of state in New York. We pulled into a gas station for a quick break on a hot summer day. I saw a guy with the hood of his car open in and in a bad mood. As I was walking in to the station I heard him yell to his wife (out of frustration, we've all been there) to go in and get 4 quarts of 10w 30 oil. I noticed they had out of state plates and would be frustrated myself if I had car issues. So while in the station I heard the lady ask an employee where the 10 something fluid was. The employee had no idea what she was talking about. She looked horrified to make the trip worse by asking her already upset husband what he said again. So I grabbed what she needed and paid for it all while she was trying to explain what she needed to the employee. I said this is what you need, I overheard what he said.
She had a great look on her face that someone would go out of his way for such small kind gesture that meant so much. She wanted to give me money but I refused. But the kind gesture just happened to be at the right time. We all got back into our trucks and off we went. After about an hour the lead truck I was in I pulled over to plan what road we would do next. A car pulled up behind me and it was that couple. I thought the guys going to kick my but because he thinks I was hitting on his wife. All he did is came up to me and said "thank you sir very much". He the explained to me that it was the worst week of his life. They were on their way home from his mom's funeral to. He told me that he wanted me to know what I did brought them back down to earth. He then said "God bless you" and left.
Tomorrow make it a goal to do one thing good that you'll remember for the rest of your life. Just maybe the person you do it for will remember to.
