    pretty cool guy, his name was Jim, he had a sweet red 89 K5 that was overheating, no water in the rad. I offerd my water, but his wife(i think) showed up
    said he was on here a little, and was planning to become a member soon.

    Pip's a with a slow hand, a lover with an easy touch, somebody who will spend some time. He won't come and go in a heated rush. He'll understand. When it comes to love, Pip has a slow hand.

    There ARE nice folks out there.

    The sixpack's alternator blew up on me the other week ... going uphill ... fully laden, moving, on a week when it was 113*F. In heavy traffic, the truck just died.

    I couldn't get her off the road, I'm two lanes in ... so I just parked it, and called AAA.

    Some nice guy (in a Frrd, no less) showed up with a tow strap and dragged me off to the shoulder, and went off merrily on his way with a handshake.

    Now, don't get me started about the joker from the tow company who showed up but wouldn't tow me...

    I always considered it obligatory to stop and help someone stranded. I've been stranded so many times with no help that it just seems like the proper thing to do.
    I stopped to help a girl in a 2000 cavalier with a blown motor who was stuck in an intersection after a half dozen people just drove around her. As I'm trying tp push the car (uphill), my sneakers couldn't get traction (it was raining), and some hombre in an Excursion stopped and helped me push her over. I felt bad for the girl, she must have been a teenager and she was hysterical crying about it. Chicks cry over the wierdest stuff sometimes...

    Good deal stopping to help. :thumb:

    Yeah I figured that, just got in a "Since we're talking about it" vibe cause that's where the thread was going. It was good of you to stop, so I was giving you a pat on the back anyway.

    Didn't figure on it either, so second Ratch.

    There's one time I didn't stop that still bugs me a year later. I try to justify it with it not being safe for me to have stopped (& it wasn't - the Sub was in a really bad spot w/ 4 lanes of traffic squeezing to 3 b/c of him), but that doesn't help much.
