Yep, everything happens for a reason. We all know that saying, and most times we don’t fully understand what the reason is. Chy-Niece didn’t understand either, but she was about to find out. The police officer, Officer Jenkins, took the whole situation seriously. Although it wasn’t him personally that was mistreated by the auto store, he found their behavior appalling and disappointing.
Within minutes, the police officer transformed from being Officer Jenkins in Blue to superhero Jenkins as a mechanic in disguise. He asked Chy-Nieceto to open the trunk so he could have a look for himself. Jenkins was happy he could help out. He didn’t want unemployed Chy-Niece to pay for something she had already paid for. He even said to her; “I care more about your safety than giving you a ticket.”
At Least There Were No Tickets
So, on one hand, she was at ease that there was no ticket awaiting her, however, being unemployed, buying (again) a new brake light was the last thing she needed. Chy-Niece was not exaggerating with her reaction. The days were no easy days and paying for day-to-day expenses was one thing, but she wasn't prepared for these unexpected expense.
Apparently, she had a bad history with Firestone, the auto store that was supposed to fix the brake light at the time. She shared on her post how the auto store was being unfair with the charges and asked her to pay more than what was fair.
A Good Samaritan
Police officers sometimes tend to have a bad reputation for being rough and insensitive to situations, but this police officer was the exact opposite. Not only was he sensitive to the whole scenario, but he was also about to give Chy-Niece advice she was least expecting. Life can be surprising sometimes, and this was a great example of just how.
Her brake light wasn't working, the auto store was being unfair to her, and now she found herself late for a job interview, but with a Superman of the day by her side. She remembered what once she had heard. Even if you don't understand why, everything in life happens for a reason.
Chy-Niece was relieved. There she had in front of her a police officer that turned into her savior. What would she have done if she wasn't pulled over in the first place? It was comforting to know that there were still good samaritans out there that were willing to step in and help others even if they gained nothing.
Did Officer Jenkins really have the ability to fix the brake light? At first, there was no luck. He tried to solve the problem directly from the light socket; however, the light was not found. He then turned to the main light source of the car.
Sharing With the World
Chy-Niece detailed in her post how the nice officer instructed her to open the hood and check this and to check that and all she could think of was, is Jenkins going to make it? The day she was expecting had dramatically changed and nothing was like she initially imagined.
Half an hour had gone by, and still, there was no light, no solution, and the job interview Chy-Niece almost forgot about was blurring out in the distance. What was the ned of this day holding for her?
