SAVANNAH, Ga. – A woman who suffered a flat tire on her way to a job interview was able to make it there, albeit was in the back seat of a police car.
Ali Hayes, a recent nursing school graduate, was on her way to a job interview Thursday when her tire blew out on the interstate, WJCL reported.
Flustered, she called her parents and road-side assistance. Neither was able to get there in time to get her to her interview.
Then, Savannah police officer Corey Wright arrived. Hayes frantically explained the situation.
“I understand how it is, you know. Having an interview is a very stressful enough day for you, then something goes wrong and it’s even more stressful,” Wright said. “So I told her, I said, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll give you a ride. Where is it at?’”
Hayes arrived, with a minute to spare, in a police van, a detail she explained to interviewers.
“It was very helpful,” Hayes said. “I feel like it was just a sweet act of kindness because I know I was crying when I was telling him, and I was very frantic about getting there. And it just means a lot to me.”
The company was impressed with Hayes’ determination. She accepted a job offer and will work as a licensed practical nurse care coordinator.
