This Generosity Fuel for Thought


I AM a 76-year-old man and last Friday I was getting fuel at the servo on the corner of Nicklin Way and Beerburrum St. I went in to pay but had forgotten that the bank had taken some payments out of my account and so my card was declined. I started to panic until a kind young gentleman behind me offered to pay for my fuel. I tried to get some details out of him so I could pay him back the next day but he said not to worry about it. I just wanted to thank him for helping out an elderly gent. And let people know that there are some generous and compassionate folks out there. Once again, thanks.

I told the older woman of the younger one's kind gesture.

What a kind-hearted person.

These women had never met before.
