Kind tow company helped

I would just like to share an experience that happened to me recently that restored my faith in humanity and our community.

My girls and I were heading out to a soccer game and my daughter accidentally locked the car keys in the car. Not only were we going to be late to the game, but I did not have a spare key to unlock the car. In addition, due to marital difficulties I was separated from my husband and I had only $20 to my name to last me until my next paycheck, I knew I could not afford a tow company or a locksmith to let me in. So I tried to get in myself, no success so I began to call – no one would help me. I called our local law enforcement, our state law enforcement and explained in tears my situation but they would not help.

I called tow company after tow company and asked if they would let me in for my $20 and I would pay them the balance on my next check – and no one would help till I reached a nice man at I Be Towing out of Snohomish. I explained my situation to him and he said he would be here in 20 minutes and we would work something out. He arrived in 15 minutes with another nice man and they unlocked my car in record time. I tried to give him my $20 but he refused it and said it was on him – I was so incredibly touched I started to cry and he gave me hug and told me everything would be OK. We were even able to make part of my daughter’s soccer game. Please print this letter as a symbol of my thanks to I Be Towing and as a demonstration that kind and caring people do exist. I am very grateful to him.
