Man in awe over stranger’s heartwarming response to his missing bicycle: ‘He is a legend’

An act of kindness that happened in July is just now going viral on Reddit a few months later. 

Reddit user shared the story of Steve Farmer, a train commuter, and Abdul Muneeb, a railway worker in London, in the forum “Humans Being Bros.” One day, Farmer left his bike locked in a train station. But when he returned he was certain it had been stolen. 

“Left work at 6 p.m. to find just the cut lock and no bike. Resigned to never seeing my trust stead again, asked the station if they have cameras. A guy appeared waving at me, asked me to put the code into my cut lock. He replied, ‘I have your bike’ with a smile I will never forget! His name is Abdul and he works for South Eastern Railways,” Farmer wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post that was reshared on Twitter

Muneeb later shared with the Express and Star what went down while Farmer was away.

“I heard the sound of a lock being snapped and I didn’t think twice. I said, ‘You’re not taking that back.’ I couldn’t let that happen,” Muneeb said. “Voices were raised a little — I said, ‘It’s not your bike.’ I have a bike and cycle to work — I know what value they have to people. The guy eventually gave up and walked off. I put the bike into safe storage because the lock had been broken.”

Farmer praised the worker for being a Good Samaritan. 

“He [Muneeb] then took it inside and waited four hours after his shift to personally make sure I got my bike back,” Farmer wrote in the post. “The world needs more Abduls. He is a legend of a man and a credit to his employer.” 

In the end, a little kindness always goes a long way.
