Default Bonneville to the rescue......

I went to pick up my fiancee for lunch and to make a bank run and while she was talking to her Asst. Mgr,an elderly lady walked up and asked for a can of fix-a-flat.

She showed her where it was and the lady looked at the price and said"That'* too much. I don't have that much money with me." I had noticed someone was putting on a spare when I pulled up in the parking lot so,I knew which car was hers.

I walked out of the store behind her and without saying a word,pulled the car over beside hers and hooked the hose up in the trunk and then to the spare she was putting on. It didn't have a hole in it,just low on air.

She was still standing on the side walk talking to someone that had walked out of the store with her and she looked over and saw what I was doing. She walked over and I told her it would take a minute and I'd have her all fixed up.

We started talking and in 2 or 3 minutes the tire was full and I unhooked the hose and started rolling it back up. She asked me if she owed me anything for putting air in her tire. I told her nothing at all.,just remember me in a prayer. She gave me a hug and told me that there needed to be more people willing to help someone in need.

Two comments...
First of all, you rock for helping out and even more for asking to be remembered in prayer....I'm sure you will be blessed many times over
Second, what'* up with the air pump? I have never heard of this. Please someone tell me more about this.
