Today I finally completed a task that’s been daunting me with endless steps for several months. Our MINI’s low tire warning wouldn’t quit, despite full tires (checked by a visit from AAA professionals). Since we barely drive anymore, it was easy to forget until the beeping warning persisted and gave me anxiety anytime I had to drive.
We visited our regular mechanic, who identified the problem but couldn’t fix it or order the part. I nearly gave up here. After sourcing the part for our 11-year-old car, I found the kindest woman on the phone of a local tire center. Her quote for installation made it abundantly clear the dealership where I had to buy the part was overcharging.
This angel then gave me the first appointment of the morning so that I could reduce any contact with others. And then she wouldn’t even charge me because it was too minor a job!!! Seriously. I could not believe it. I brought her a giant cookie from the deli we love across the street, but I wish I could have hugged her. Damn pandemic. Also, this tire center was very conscientious about proper mask-wearing. Yay!
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was the kindness of Kris! And the warning light turned off immediately! What a relief! Thank you, Kris and the staff at GCR Tires! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
