I have, just recently, when my car tyre suddenly went flat whilst I was driving. It took me time to bring the car under control and park on the side of the road. I was about to call a mechanic when a car pulled in behind me in which was a young man and his wife and two children. He said "I saw your tyre go flat and  I came back to see if you are OK. Do you have spare tyre? He stayed, changed my tyre and whole family waved goodbye. Wow! Then I realised that I did not know his name, but I did thank him.

A few days later, I was driving on a suburban road and I saw a young couple each carrying two heavy shopping bags. I turned around because that street was quite a long one without any houses and asked them if I could drive them home. Afterwards I realised I did not give my name but their thanks were there, both in their faces and by their words
