I'm really thinking about giving this "Always be a Good Sumaritan" idea a kick to the curb. Listen to this and let me know what you guys think!!
Last night, after I got off of work, I was driving home and I saw a car pulled off the side of the road. It was freezing outside and they're was a young guy and his girlfriend trying desperately to get their car re-started. I have a knack for quick solutions (at least my high school guidance counselor said I did ) and I'm pretty handy with a car so, I decided to stop and see if I could help. I always try to stop and lend a hand if I can in these situations.
It ended up that their battery was completely dead, so I gave them a jump. It took about 25-30 minutes for me to get it started. Finally, I did and the guy was very happy. He said thanks mister and I told them to have a good night.
All fine and well, right? Not really, because in the mist of me working on this fella's car, I shut my car door and the automatic start in my car locked the doors on me. So, when I went to get back in my car to make my 45 minute drive home, I found myself completely locked out.
If that wasn't enough, the couple that I had just finished helping seconds before, saw that I was locked out. You want to no what they did to help me out?
...Wait for it!!
...NOTHING!!! They saw me, laughed, pointed and FREAKIN' DROVE AWAY!!!!!!
I ended up having to wait for almost an hour for AAA to come let me back in. I got off of work at 10 last night, and didn't get home till almost 1 am.
Sorry to vent, but this has been bugging me ever since. How can people do stuff like that. Things like this have happened to me before and frankly, I'm getting a bit tired of it. Maybe I should addapt everyone else's "Screw you, you deal with it" attitude. (I won't, but it still feels good to say!)
Sorry for the rant.
