Kudos for Captain Manchester

Some people who get laid off sit around crying for a few days, sign up for unemployment, and then begin the endless slog of finding a job. A Manchester, England man added a step: become a superhero. While he can’t leap tall buildings in a single bound, he does pay for expired meters, saving many a motorist a hefty fine. It was reported:

He has also been helping ladies carry their shopping, handing out umbrellas while it was raining to shoppers and aiding people moving furniture.

Captain Manchester, who has over 3,000 followers on Twitter, leaves a business card at the scene of his good deeds.

It’s a story that warms the heart and annoys the parking authority. It also makes you wonder what kind of woman this guy’s dating. He hasn’t told her what he’s doing with his time off. He says:

“I told my two best friends what I was doing and they were very supportive but my girlfriend has no idea, she’d kill me.”
