  • An old lady that made me cry

    Sunday, Sep 20, 2009 11:45AM / Members only

    I just got back from having dinner with my mom... and on the way home, I passed by a gas station and saw an old homeless lady there. Her shopping cart had tipped over and all her bags had fallen out. I then asked my mom if I could turn around and go help her.

    So I got back to the gas station and it was an old chinese lady, she mustve been 75 years old or so, hunched over, wrinkled, and so tiny, with her hand in the trashcan looking for things.

    I tapper her on the back and asked politely that I saw her things had fallen and if I could help her pick them up.

    When I lifted her cart up I realized how heavy it was and thought how would she possibly have picked this up on her own. While I was putting her bags back into her cart she was just constantly saying "thank you, you're such a good person, heaven must've sent you here, heaven bless you"

    Then I reached into my back pocket and handed her a $5 and she was reluctant to take it, saying that she's already so grateful that I helped her put her stuff away, and she couldn't take it.

    I told her please dont feel bad for taking it, and that I just wished her well and to take good care of herself. While I was saying this, I was fighting back tears because, god... she's so old and frail... and was so thankful that I just helped her pick up her things. I found another $5 in my wallet and gave that to her as well, fighting back more tears.

    As I walked away, a man who was pumping gas said to me "that was a good thing you did" and I just smiled and said thank you trying my hardest not to cry.

    When I drove off with my mom, the lady waved goodbye to us and didnt stop waving until we exited the driveway.

    Then as I made a u-turn and passed by the station again, I saw the lady talking to the man from earlier... and I think he was helping her out too.

    It made me so sad to see that lady like that... god... I wish I had gotten her name... especially since she did ask me for mine.

    The world is shitty sometimes and you take things for granted. And she was so happy, that somebody, who didnt have to...cared.

    Heres Malay n I with our very first (definitely not last) award
