It’s pretty much a feeling of worry if you ever get stopped or pulled over by the police. You start to think and question yourself : Did I do something wrong? Was I speeding? Did I drive through a red traffic light? And the list of worries goes on ….
This story is about Chy-Niece who was on her way to a job interview when she saw the blue lights of a police car signaling to her to pull over. Immediately, her mind was full of worries as she began to stop her car.
Chy-Niece was already stressed as it is as she was just heading to a job interview that she was a little nervous about.
She was confident that she wasn’t speeding or not following traffic guidelines. What possibly could have gone wrong?
When she pulled her car over, she rolled own her window and started to collect her driving license and other paperwork.
But what happens next is what made this story go viral all over the internet…
Officer Jenkins who had stopped her was actually advising her that her brake lights were broken. This was the last thing that Chy-Niece needed since she was already struggling, hence having to go to a job interview to secure a stable income.
However, Officer Jenkins wasn’t there to write up a fine, he was there to help her instead!
“So this happened just now. I’m on my way to go to my interview this morning when I get pulled. Both break lights decided to go out this time. As he walked to the car and I was pulling out my stuff, he quickly said,
‘Don’t worry about pulling anything out. I just want you to know your break lights are out.’
So I’m immediately upset, because I just got them replaced last month. So I explained to him how Firestone wants to charge me $600 just to run a test on the wiring of the car.
He looked at me (like he knew this was crazy) and told me to pop the trunk.
He checked the lights in the trunk and tapped them, but they didn’t come on. So he told me to pop the hood to check the relay box then asked me to get out to check the other one.
He could have easily given me a ticket, but Officer Jenkins stepped out of officer role and into mechanic role to make sure I was straight.”
Given all the horrible things that we usually hear on the news, this story brings a smile to my face. It’s lovely reading about the genuine kindness that some people do for others out of the goodness of their heart.
