Be honest: when you see a motorist in trouble on the side of the road, what do you do? If you keep on driving without even considering lending a hand, you’re like most people. If you pull over and help a fellow citizen out, you’re more like David Beckham.
A stranded motorist, Paul Long, recently told Just Jared a tale about his being stranded in the middle of a roundabout only to have a generous gentleman pull over and lend a helping hand. Maybe the people of Kansas City should reconsider their feelings?
“Cars were buzzing past and I had two kids in the back but no-one stopped, no-one came to help,” Long told Just Jared. “After 10 minutes I saw a car had pulled over into a lay-by in the distance. Its hazard lights came on. A figure got out, wearing a hoodie. As he got nearer it became apparent to me it was David Beckham,” he added. “He asked if we were OK and I said, ‘Could you give us a push over to the side?’ which he duly did.”
Say what you will about the pretty boy Englishman, but this isn’t a situation where Beckham knew cameras were watching and decided to partake in a charitable act. It was just a case of a multimillionaire showing he’s still down to earth. Give credit where credit is due.Google+
