Reader Mail: Sweatpant Ranger
Received an email from a Hoboken411 reader who said she was in a car accident this past weekend, and some nice guy helped her out when she was in a bind. She wants to thank him.
You kept me warm in a time of need
On Sunday night, I went to pick up a friend at a local bar in my car about five blocks away. Due to the quick driving time, I didn’t bother putting on sweat pants and just pulled on Uggs, a sweatshirt and puffy vest. Unfortunately, driving down Garden Street an elderly lady decided her SUV was above the law, ran a stop sign, and hit my small Audi A4 causing a bad accident in the intersection. I got out of the car stunned and a bunch of pedestrians and onlookers came over to see if I was okay. One young man, noticing my bare legs, ran inside his apartment and came back out with a pair of sweatpants. I thank him and pulled them on just as the police came. Busy answering questions and speaking with the officer I didn’t notice the gentleman leave, nor did I get his address or name. I wanted to see if you could help me put the word out of this guy’s generosity and hopefully help me find out who he was so I can (a) return his pants and (b) buy him a drink in thanks. The accident happened in the intersection of Garden and 7th, so I know he lives around there.
Hope you can help me find my Seventh and Garden Sweetie!”
