Warm Fuzzies in Auckland, New Zealand

Ana Samways writes an always entertaining and almost daily column titled Sideswipe in the New Zealand Herald. Occasionally, readers send her accounts of good deeds. For example, Pauline Bennett wrote about driving in peak-hour Auckland traffic on 27 May 2013 and stopping for the lights: “The guy in the car behind got out and he came and tapped on my window. ‘Did I know I had a flat tyre?’ he asked. I turned into a local business car park [the USAmerican phrase is “parking lot”] and was resigned to a two-hour wait for the AA [Automotive Association] to arrive, but this lovely young builder from Papakura had followed me into the car park to ask if I needed help. He changed my tyre and insisted he didn’t expect or want anything from me. I have been filled with the ‘warm fuzzies’ since.”
