Helping someone
"The Good Samaritan" by Patty Palmer

I had gone to the little grocery store. As I pulled in, another car pulled in beside me. The lady got out of her car and went inside. The car next to me started rolling backward down the parking lot, which was on a slope. It was heading right for the street filled with traffic! So, I ran toward the car. Catching up with it, I grabbed the door handle and pulled the door open. I quickly jumped to get inside so I could step on the brake and put the emergency brake on.

The owner and the lady came running out of the store, screaming at the top of her lungs that I was trying to steal her car! Before I could get out of the car, she starts hitting me with her purse and he wouldn't let me out. Next thing I know, I hear sirens and here comes the police and a fire truck barreling into the parking lot! Someone had called the cops! They come running to the car with the cop's hand on his gun like he might have to shoot me! I'm trying to tell him what had happened. He told me to wait until I get out of the car and slaps handcuffs on me! So, I get out of the car and the lady's yelling and I'm trying to talk to the cop. Luckily, the store owner saw me get into the car and stopping it before it got to the street.

They took the handcuffs off and said I was free to leave. I was so angry! Next time I go out, I'm going to put blinders on so I can't see anything! See if I help anyone again!

Author Notes
When this was over the lady never said a word to me. Not a thank you or anything. She just got in her car and left! Now the policeman had a good laugh over the misunderstanding. I didn't see it quite as funny as he did!
