PIC: During a traffic jam in Limerick, this man handed out free sweets to lift people's spirits
What a sound man.
Being stuck in traffic is an absolute pain in the arse but one man in Limerick went out of his way to make a recent traffic jam far more enjoyable for everyone.
Yesterday afternoon, JOE reader Emma Smyth was just one of the many motorists that was stuck in traffic between junction 29 and 30 on the Dublin to Limerick motorway. We're told that a burnt-out car on the hard shoulder prevented any other vehicles from passing by.
Rather than dwell on the negatives, one man decided to spread a little joy by handing out sweets to his fellow frustrated motorists.
Emma says that "We were stuck for approximately 40 minutes and he went around to 10-15 cars. He seemed to cheer everyone up and lots of people were still laughing about it as the traffic began to clear. I took a sweet as did most other people. All it takes is a small kind gesture to make someone's day!"
Whoever this man is, we're certain that he's got plenty of good karma coming his way.
Not all heroes wear capes, some just give out Heroes.
