LETTER: Good Samaitans come to my rescue twice

I FELT I had to write a message of thanks to two acts of kindness I experienced this week.

The first act happened while I was driving slowly down a narrow lane when my car and another clipped wing mirrors. About two miles later I realised something was amiss when someone pulled alongside me while waiting at traffic lights, the driver jumped out and presented me with my wing mirror trim which, unbeknown to me, had flicked off earlier.

The chap had been in the car behind and saw it come off. He retrieved it then followed me until he had an opportunity to return it.

The second act was when a man returned my mobile phone after finding it on the roof of my car. I had left it there after arriving home late with my family on bonfire night. I must have forgotten about it while busy unpacking the car.

I didn’t even realise I’d lost it until he knocked on my door the following day and inquired as to whether it was mine.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to both these good Samaritans for going out of their way and saving me the money and hassle of replacing my wing mirror or mobile phone.

If you’re reading this, “Thanks again!”
