Re: Would you help a stranded motorist?

One day while driving for the delivery service that I worked for in Memphis, TN, I saw an elderly man beside an old pickup truck on the entrance ramp to the interstate. I pulled over and explained that due to my job I could not offer him a ride but I could call for help, he looked at me kinda bewildered and said "thanks, but I am just picking up cans on the side of the road." We both had a good laugh and I went on my way and he went on his.

Re: Would you help a stranded motorist?

Every time I've attempted to help someone I've regretted it. If I'm traveling alone I won't stop, if I've got Sis or my Parents in the car I'll have them contact someone to let them know they're out there.

Like Mum said a while back, we liked having the bright green Response vehicles trucking down the highway back in TN. I haven't seen anything like that at all here in New Mexico, or any other state come to think of it. Mayhaps I'm not paying enough attention to notice, though. I don't tend to drive much save for in town. I'll keep an eye out while I'm out on Thursday and Friday, though (I got a pick-up job on Thursday and Sis is coming in from Houston Friday).

Re: Would you help a stranded motorist?

Gee, 'Tace... does that mean you wouldn't give the guy at the EastRidge Exit (I-75 Exit 1) a lift? I'm talking about the guy with the invisible dog!

No. No no no no no NO. Nu-uh, no way, nope, newp, nein, nyet, non, chigau, nej, N-O Spells It, NO.

Along with that feller that keeps holding up the sign that says "Going to Albuquerque for Doctor's Appointment" because I know he ain't.
