So it has been a while since I last updated my tumblr…sorry for that..for the few who might be reading this, LOL. Today it is raining cats and dogs. Kind of ironic, with Gov. Brown about to sign a repeal of a law that gives funding to animal shelters for medical treatment and euthanizing stray/lost animals.
ON TO THE POINT!
So…everyone has had that moment when their car breaks down or something falls off of their car and they need to get it fixed. That happened to me. The plastic shield under my engine came down and began to drag on the street as I drove my car. It caused so much noise that people hundred of feet away started to turn around to stare at me. Needless to say, I wanted it fixed. ASAP. I was able to take my car to a place called Gilman Collision Repair in Berkeley, CA, where a lady named Nicole and a guy named Craig were SUPER friendly and really helpful. They had multiple cars waiting to get seen and quoted from the rainy day’s victims, but they still took the time to see my car, write me a quick quote for the replacement, and then had a technician get a jack and take out the plastic shield (which I found impossible to do on my own). Since it was so easy for them, they just gave me a smile and told me that it was on the house and to have a great day.
It has been such a long time since someone has done something so kind to me. Usually I am the one who holds doors open for people and does random kind acts for strangers. It was actually extremely refreshing to have someone you don’t even know repay that kindness. Other body shops wanted to charge me $20-30, but they did it for free.
I am a believer in karma, and I sincerely hope that the people at Gilman Collision Center have a good deed coming their way.
Pay it forward people! One person can make a huge differenced if they can start a chain reaction of good deeds from one simple act.
