My SO leaves for work at 5:30am. I was off of work today, so I slept in a bit. When I finally got up, I looked out the window and not only had he cleaned the snow off of my car, he’d shoveled a path from the front door of the house all the way to my driver’s side door. So sweet!
Now.. I tried to get out of his neighborhood, but I couldn’t. I waited for a few hours and tried every so often, hoping it would get plowed or some snow would melt. I tried shoveling my car out. No luck. Around lunchtime, I finally called him because I was at a loss… I had a lot of things to do and I knew the main roads were fine, if I could just get out.
Twenty minutes later, he shows up at the house 🙂 He’d left work early and he used his chains and big truck to pull my little sedan out of the neighborhood.
That’s 100x better than flowers in my book. I didn’t even ask–and he is paid hourly, so leaving work a few hours early hurts him. I love that he sacrificed to help me out when I was stressed 🙂
