I went down to the highway to pick up my mail and put trash in the dumpster. First stop at the mail box, and as I was pulling out, I waited while a car passed on the highway. I didn't pay a lot of attention. I pulled out and followed the car almost a mile and pulled off at the dumpster. I got out, lifted the bags from the truck bed and into the dumpster, and then I got back into the truck and began to turn onto the highway to return home.
A car pulled off the highway and came to a stop beside me, and the woman driver rolled her window down. I did, too, and she asked if I was lost or needed any help. I was surprised and puzzled, and told her no. Her reply was "OK, I saw you were off the road back there, then you pulled off here, and I thought you might need some help. Sometimes people get confused on these secondary highways." She was in the car that passed me as I left the mailbox!
I thanked her and said I had picked up the mail and then dropped trash, and she said OK, she just was checking. Now, she had to go about another mile to turn around and come back. How thoughtful is that? I've done the same sort of thing before, and it was a reassurance to me that I'm not the only one. I love living where people not only stop to help, but go out of their way to do so. How cool is that?
