Good News (2/27) - Mechanic Lets Stranger Use His Personal Vehicle

(Wisconsin) - Todd was driving to a funeral service for his boss' wife when he heard a troubling noise coming from his car.  He was still 70 miles away from his destination, but decided he'd better pull over to see what was wrong.

It was 7:00 in the morning when Todd pulled into a small town with a population of 725 and found an auto repair shop.  He wasn't even sure if the shop would be open.   Todd saw 74-year-old Glenn putting oil on the shelf and was hesitant asking him for help because he didn't know if Glenn was a mechanic or if he even worked there!  It turns out Glenn is a mechanic and he quickly identified the issue on Todd's car as a wheel bearing problem, but informed Todd it would take hours to repair and he couldn't drive until it was fixed.  Todd had mentioned that he needed to make it to the funeral so Glenn tried to call a local dealership for a loaner car, but it didn’t work out.  That is when Glenn handed the keys to his personal truck to Todd so he could make it to the funeral.   He said, “Take my truck. Fill it up with gas, don’t turn on the emergency lights and get going. She’ll do 120 mph if you need her to.”

Todd returned Glenn's truck later that day after attending the funeral.  Although this is probably the first time Glenn is receiving recognition for a good deed people who know him are not surprised.  Which means he has probably spent much of his life performing good deeds and looking out for others.
