The Rock Sideswipes Fan’s Truck, Remains Adorable

I can’t say I love The Rock enough, because my love for him is just that powerful. He’s the sweetest sweetie that ever sweeted (YOU HEARD ME) and no one will convince me otherwise. It’s not a sexual attraction or anything like that (he’s so not my type in so many ways), but he’s just such a genuinely nice, decent guy and I don’t know anyone who DOESN’T like him. Anyway, this story will make you like him even more! Basically, he was driving to a set yesterday morning when he swiped some random dude’s truck because he was too busy singing to whatever song he was blasting. He stopped, saw the guy coming back to his car, and tried to give the guy money, but the guy wouldn’t accept it. Instead, they took a pic together and Dwayne told everyone on Instagram what happened.

Here’s what he wrote:

Here’s a fun story to start your week off… I’m driving to set in my pick up truck – music blasting – I’m singing away like I’m having a one man party in my truck – then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, “Aw shit.. someone’s not gonna be happy..”. I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said “Sir, is this your truck?”. He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and “Yes it is. Why?”. I said “Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything”. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said..”Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?”. I said “Yup”. He broke out into a huge smile and said “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!”. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into… and sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.

I mean, come on. That story is adorable. More celebrities – shit, more HUMANS – could take a note from The Rock’s book and treat people with the kindness and respect they deserve more often. The world would be a much better place for it.
