A Guy Gave a Store’s Last Generator to a Random Stranger . . . and Another Guy Offered Up His Car

A Guy Gave a Store’s Last Generator to a Random Stranger . . . and Another Guy Offered Up His Car

There’s some good things happening in Florida:

A woman named Pam Brekke was prepping for Hurricane Irma last week, and had to drive about 30 miles to buy a generator at a Lowe’s near Orlando. Her father is on an oxygen machine. So he can’t go without electricity.

But when Pam got to the store, she saw a guy in front of her get the LAST generator. At that point, she didn’t know what to do, and just broke down in tears.

But then another customer named Ramon Santiago walked up to her . . . and gave her the generator HE was about to buy.

A local news team happened to be there when it happened. Pam gave him a huge hug, and called him an “angel.” He said he could tell she just really needed it.

Here’s another story about strangers helping each other: Before a guy in the Florida Keys named Chris McCarthy headed north last week, he and his girlfriend left their spare car in front of their place with the KEYS in it. An old 1991 Cutlass Supreme.

Then they posted their address on Facebook, and said ANYONE who needed a car to get out could just TAKE it.

Chris said it was a no-brainer if it could possibly save a life. And someone DID end up taking them up on the offer less than an hour later.

A Family Earned $11,000 in a Weekend By Letting Delta Keep Bumping Them

A Family Earned $11,000 in a Weekend By Letting Delta Keep Bumping Them

Delta Airlines had to cancel around 3,000 flights last week because of storms. And while that had to be an absolute NIGHTMARE for tens of thousands of people . . . it was a JACKPOT for one family.

A woman named Laura Begley Bloom and her family were supposed to travel from New York to Florida on Delta for a vacation on Friday.

Their flight actually WASN’T canceled, so Delta was offering up a ton of money for people to give up their seats. Laura and her family negotiated $1,350 each to get bumped to Saturday . . . and since there were three of them, that was a total of $4,050.

When they went back to the airport on Saturday, THAT flight was also okay, and they each took another $1,315 to get bumped to Sunday.

And at the airport on Sunday, they decided just to forget about the trip to Florida, and they each took $1,000 to give up their seats . . . AND they got the original cost of the tickets refunded.

So, all in, the family made $11,000 over the weekend just to stay in New York.
