Summit Up, 4-19-2013: Nice people are cool
Ryan Summerlin April 18, 2013
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that has two – that’s right, we said two – Angel Alerts!! Angel Alerts!!
The first comes from Alex Kreider of Breckenridge, who wrote thusly:
“My friend pulled out of my lot Monday evening and, with all the new snow, promptly stuffed the car in the ditch across the road (yeah, I know, but tell me you’ve never been there). A huge thank you to the plow driver who not only stopped and made sure the friend was OK, but also spread some extra sand and took the time to hang out and direct traffic so no one got hit while we pulled the car out. You rock girl! Thank you again! And, you were right; that bumper cover snapped right back in.”
Not to be outdone, O’Lynda Fette offered this:
“A huge shout-out to the guy who stopped and turned around when driving to Breckenridge on 4-16-2013. Two dogs chased a fox across highway 9. The ‘Angel’ not only was able to avoid hitting them, but he turned around and got out of his car to find the dogs. Not many people would have stopped to look for the running dogs. Thank you kind Angel for stopping to help bring the dogs to safety. You are a true saint!”
We here at Summit Up think nice people are the coolest. There’s nothing better than having your day amped up by some good karma. An added incentive to practice niceness comes in the form of this reminder from the late, though still quotable, Kurt Cobain: “If you’re really a mean person you’re going to come back as a fly and eat poop.”
