A quick shopping trip after work turned out to be a nightmare on Monday, Nov. 17, as unbeknownst to me, my vehicle’s fuel pump quit right at the intersection of 74 Avenue and King George Boulevard during rush hour, stranding me at the lights.
While frantically trying to get the vehicle re-started, and making a call home, there was a knock on the window with a nice man indicating he would push the vehicle to a safer place. I was so surprised and thankful that this man would stop to help; it was not easy as my vehicle is a truck, it was dark outside, the lights were changing, and many impatient drivers were passing on both sides. When I looked back to see how we were doing, a second man had come to help.
Finally my vehicle was safely pushed off the very busy road, and upon exiting, I noticed the second man had already left. I was unable to thank him personally. I offered the first man compensation which he flatly refused.
Thank you to both men for helping me out in a very stressful situation. It was greatly appreciated.
