Driving Home The Kindness, Part 10

, | Hopeless | October 27, 2016

(My mother is in the hospital and our car isn’t working. My adult son and I either have the option of taking the bus downtown and transferring to the one that goes near our house, or taking one that goes directly to our neighborhood and walking a mile to get home. Please note, it’s the dead of winter. A cab pulls up.)

Cab Driver: “Aren’t you that crossing guard? I go by your corner all the time! Get in; I’ll give you a ride!”

Me: “No, thanks, we’re okay.”

Cab Driver: “I’m going right by your corner anyway. Hop in!”

(So we did. He wouldn’t even take a tip!)
