Helpers and Honkers


I wanted to thank the two gentlemen and the lovely woman who helped me out when my car broke down in front of Lazy Acres last Saturday. While most people either honked or made impatient gestures — did they really think that I was blocking traffic for fun? — those three people volunteered to push my car out of the way and to stay with me until AAA arrived. I was in a state of panic and having those people helped me calm down tremendously.

The next time you see someone stranded in the middle of the road, please don’t get angry at that person. Just ask if you can help. Thank you again to my helpers!
