My car wasn’t starting as the battery was dead. I asked the building assistant for help, and he asked me to buy a pair of booster cable. While returning with the booster cable, a stranger approached me. He told me he was didn’t speak French and needed money for his medical treatment. I had 25 euros with me, which I gave him. He seemed happy with what I gave him.
The booster cables didn’t work for my car, though, and I had to call the mechanic to get it started!
