This morning, I passed a well-dressed middle-aged (decent-looking) man in a nice car, stuck by the side of the road with the hood open (car broke down) on the Gulf Road. It was already 42 degrees outside (about what - 115, I think). He looked damn hot.
I drove by. And intended to continue to work. And drove. And damn.... I felt guilty.
So I went back.
I just asked him if he wanted to sit in my car with the AC on until his help arrived. He thanked me and said his brother was on his way. Dude was so thankful and shocked. I think it took him a minute to register.
It stated me wondering what has happened to Kuwaiti society that no one else would stop to help him or offer the same? It didn't used to be like this here. If I saw a dog on the side of the road, I would have stopped in a heartbeat, but I really had to think hard before going back for a human in distress. (Then I got to wondering if stranger-dude had been dressed differently, or driving a different car - would I have even given him thought. That's wrong and judgmental and I don't want to be that person.)
If I hadn't seen this video on Facebook yesterday, maybe I wouldn't have stopped at all. I dunno. This got me thinking:
So, I did my good deed for the day. (I hope no one comes along and phucks up my attitude.)
