A Stranger Made My Day

As I was sitting down at a bench outside Macdonald’s Bedok Mall, a group of policemen approached me. They requested for my ID. And then a stranger came and offered them his ID instead.

Stranger : Why not you guys check my ID instead? I am from Pakistan.

Policeman : What are you trying to do?

Stranger : You guys are harassing him. I mean look at him, he is obviously born & bred here. He doesn’t look suspicious to me.

I surrendered them my ID. That stranger comforted me,”Be smart. You’ll know what to do next time.”

He left. I smiled.

But I am not ready to give up my passport yet.
