Letters to the Editor

One happy traveller

A big thank you to the two young men who pushed my stalled vehicle out of traffic on Nordel Way on Jan. 4.

Dozens of drivers had driven past me without offers to help before these chivalrous young men came along.

They very reluctantly accepted a $20 gratuity from me and then returned five minutes later with a steaming jumbo cup of Tim Hortons coffee to keep me warm while I waited for a tow truck.

Their kindness turned an unpleasant, inconvenient situation into a very heartwarming experience.
