Karma rewards good Samaritan with the best 38-Geary ride
Here’s evidence that karma really rewards random kindness. Muni rider Dave said that he had possibly his best ride on the 38-Geary when he decided to help a woman carry her heavy groceries from the bus.
This evening, I was honored to help a woman named Maral carry her groceries home from the bus stop. Maral is preparing for a party on Sunday and after spending the whole day shopping for groceries, she ended up with more than she could carry.
â€œThe bread is light,â€ she said, â€œbut the pork and vegetables are so heavy.â€
Maral is from Armenia, and her husband is recovering from successful open heart surgery three months ago.
â€œI went to the hospital and I yelled at him him, â€˜You do not die yet! You do not die!â€™ And, he did not die.â€ She laughed. â€œI did not even cry.â€ Then she paused. â€œActually, I cry a lot. But not at the hospital.â€
Maral told Dave more about her life on their way back to her house, and even tries to offer Dave some money for being such a nice guy (of course he said no). Read the rest of his story onÂ Medium, and see a photo of two new friends who met on the Muni.
