My area had just been hit by a snowstorm. I shoveled the path in front of my house, but because I didn’t have to work that week, I didn’t bother to clear my car. But the next day, I realized I had to go to the store, and my car was now embedded in two feet of ice. I don’t know any of my neighbors well enough to knock on doors and ask for help, so I resigned myself to doing it alone. However, after half an hour, a stranger approached me with another shovel and an ice chopper. He worked on the driver side, I worked on the passenger side, and between us, we finished in about an hour what would have taken me at least four hours on my own.
