Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I was driving on EC row Wednesday morning (September 26) in the pouring rain when I lost complete control of my SUV. I ended up on the other side of EC row in the left lane. Seconds after my car finally came to a stop a man came running towards me asking if I was ok. I was terrified and crying uncontrollably. The front of the car was stuck in the side of the median so he drove it out for me and then he proceeded to stop traffic so I can pull it over to the shoulder. He checked my car to make sure everything was ok and after giving me the ok he asked me if I live on a specific street. I looked at him a bit confused and before I could answer I found out he was the same guy that was doing construction in front of my parents house a few weeks earlier. My parent's driveway was blocked and I was very annoyed and impatient. It was maybe 35 degrees that day and my AC was not working, kids in the car and I just wanted to get inside. I should have been more kind and patient and realizing this was the same guy now going out of his way to help me I started crying even more and apologized to him. I'm usually the one giving construction workers water when they're working outside in the heat and I don't normally snap like this and I felt so incredibly bad. That day I went back outside to apologize and give them water but they were gone. And now here he was helping me in the pouring rain. He waited behind me until the road cleared so I can drive in front of him. And then I waived at him as I got off my exit. I managed to get his name. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, John. You are an incredibly kind and caring human being. You have no idea how grateful I am that you were there that day. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. Because of this I will be more patient and understanding. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I will never forget your help and kindness.
