Uber driver turns mechanic, repairs passenger’s flat tire instead of giving him a ride
Local Press Co 5-point Snippet
1. On Tuesday morning, Chennai-based journalist Jarshad Kakkrakandy got into his car to travel to work for an important meeting.
2. However, he was forced to stop mid-way when he discovered his car had a flat tire. Given he was in a rush and had to reach his workplace in the next 30 minutes, he decided to call an Uber cab.
3. However, when his cab arrived and the driver Dhinesh Kumar noticed the journo’s car, he asked about the issue. After Kakkrakandy explained the matter, the cabbie didn’t spare any thought before he replaced the flat tire with the spare one and asked him to go on ahead instead of taking him in his cab.
4. When Kakkrakandy offered Kumar money, he refused to take it. The stranger’s random act of kindness left the journo speechless.
5. When the journo posted about the incident on his Facebook account, it captured the fancy of many netizens who started sharing the post. As of writing this, the post had received over 1200 shares on the social media platform.
