Opinion: Folks proved to truly be helpful
My engine overheated in Brandon Friday evening. I was putting antifreeze into the overflow when a stranger came up to me and helped me diagnose what was wrong, get air out of the system, and assured me it was OK to drive home to Middlebury. When I asked him what I could pay him, he said to Pay It Forward.
I needed my car to drive my boys to camp in North Hero on Sunday, so the next morning, when my normal car repair shop was full, I ended up at Mike’s Auto. Tyler had it looked at promptly and determined I had a slow leak in my water pump. Knowing this, I was able to drive to North Hero the next day, and then get my car fixed Monday. Tyler refused any payment too — so I told him I would Pay It Forward.
