Flash 55 Plus A Stranger

A stranger stopped to help change my flat tire. I was jumping up and down on the four way tire iron without success. He made short work of it and refused money I pressed into his palm.  He said, “When you see my wife or daughter needing help, stop and help them. That's payment enough.”

Oh, I love the challenge of writing with a specified number of words.
I hope the tire incident is only in your mind... but you created such a believable post - I can see that it could be true.
