Why did he accept the 200 lei from the old man at the gas station

I never thought that my gesture of gratitude to a good man would give rise to such a reaction in Romania. That man did something that took me by surprise, no one ever gave me money on the street. I felt embarrassed and ashamed on the one hand, but I also had a sense of gratitude that simply overwhelmed me.“Chernitskaya said in an interview with fanatik.ro.

That man didn’t even tell me his name, he made that gesture from the bottom of his heart, and he just didn’t know he would be judged by so many people. I didn’t think of that at the time either. I would like to meet him again, thank him and show the children that his gesture was a sincere one of support for Ukraine.She added.

He saw that I was well-dressed, that I didn’t drive the cheapest car, but he didn’t think about it. So it moved me. I’d like to get his money back and something, but I don’t think he’ll take it. This is how Romanians are, from what I noticed: if they offer you help and you refuse them, they feel offended. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s the feeling they left me with“, Concluded the woman.
