I was inspired to start this topic by reading a post by MH81 http://gardentractor...bye-to-another/
It seems like all we hear about are the bad things that people do but we all know good people still exist. I want to kick this off about one of my own experiences & if you have one please share it. I was getting ready to back out of a convenience store one day when I saw this ole guy in a really beat up farm truck pulling in. I thought I better let him park before I pull out. Well he parked right next to me with his tail gate hanging down so I had to back way out to clear him. I was sitting near the curb waiting to pull out into traffic & heard someone yelling LOOK OUT! I looked in my rear view mirror & this ole truck was rolling backwards headed at me. I started blowing my horn but that doesn't help at someone behind you especially when there is no driver...yes no driver. That old truck hit the back door of my work van & rattled everything inside. I got out & the ole guy was walking towards me apologizing. He started crying & telling me they will take my license away for sure now, I'll never be able to drive, all I wanted was a gallon of gas. I was so sympathetic for this ole guy. I told him to relax nobody was hurt & I looked at my van & here is this giant dent right in the middle of one of the doors. I thought well it's not in the frame so I think I could pull this out easily I would just have a little spot where it pierced. I told the guy to not worry about it I could fix it to just be careful. He was very thankful & told me several times he was sorry. About two weeks later I was merging onto a back country road from another. It was dark, raining & I was tired just wanting to get home from work. I saw this truck coming so I pulled out behind it not seeing his utility trailer so I side swiped the rear corner breaking the tail light off. I thought here goes a few days pay & maybe a big citation. The driver had already pulled over so I pulled in behind him. Surprising his first words were you ok, I told him yeah I'm alright are you? I apologized & told him I would take care of it. We looked at the damage, his tail light was hanging by the wires & a few scratches on the side rail. He looked & said don't worry about it it's just a trailer I can fix it later lets just all go home. I thanked him many times & as I got inside I was so overwhelmed & I immediately thought of my ole friend that hit me a couple of weeks ago. Be nice to someone today.
