A car problem

You Needed To Jump Start This Car?
I remember last year when my baby was sick and we need to take him to the hospital. We went there to see the Doctor.
He said that the baby was fine, he had a flu but nothing really to worry about if we give him the right medications.
We had a very hard week, I lost my job and we were short on money. I was about to sell my car to a friend of mine who was a mecanic. I was not sure what was the car's problem but we needed to keep jumping start it every time we stopped. I had to keep jumper cables in my car because of it.
Well, when we came out from the hospital I knew we were going to have to ask someone to give us a jump. I approached a lady in a car next to us and asked for help, but she said that was really busy and did not have time for that.
I got mad because she was really rude and I got mad, but started looking for someone else who might help.
Suddenly an old gentleman parked next to my car and without asking offered to help us. It was a simple thing, but it meant a lot to us. I think people should help more each other, you never know when you're going to be in a bad spot.
We want to thank that stranger who so kindly helped us out.
