I routinely help women to load their cars at Costco when I see they are by themselves or with little kids and they have heavy items (like bottled water) in their carts.

I have yet to find anyone who declines the help, and they seem sincerely thankful that someone helped them.

Last night for example, a woman told me “We all need it to pay it forward, specially these days”.

I understand that approaching a woman walking at night by herself at night is indeed inappropriate. But would my scenario hold under every situation? or would this make you uncomfortable?

I honestly want to know.
