Letters to the Editor

If you observe the way people drive you might sometimes think your fellow drivers are lacking common decency and not very kind to each other. But then you meet the Gas Angel. 

Trying to buy gas at Costco in Leesburg, the machine kept saying “cannot read card, try again.” Then the lady at the next pump said, “Here use my card,” and stuck her credit card into the reader. 

I said, “How is this going to work, how do I pay you back?” 

She said, “I do not want you to pay ME back; you do something nice for somebody else. You pass it forward.” She spun around in her tennis skirt and got in her car. 

I said, “You are too sweet.” The Gas Angel just waved and drove away. 

I am a 70-year-old man so she was not flirting with me—darn it.  She was just being kind and wanted to do something for somebody else, make their day better. 

We should all do what she says. Thank you, Gas Angel.
