I never figured I’d be writing another post about being a good Samaritan, but hey, here it is.
While slothing at a red light waiting to make a left turn, I checked out a good lookin’ cyclist taking a left onto the street.
BAM!! His tire blows out in the middle of the intersection and he pulls off to the side. Suck.
So I leaned out the window and HOLLAAAHHHHH’d!!!!!!!!!!
OK well I leaned out the window and said ‘Hey! You got what you need to change your tire?’
Cyclist says he does.
I then go “wanna ride? I got plenty of room” (I should mention to you fabulous readers that I drive a Mazda3 hatchback. I know, pretty ballah. Who WOULDN’T want to ride along in that?)
Cyclist replies that he lives “right down the street” and then pathetically walks his fancy road bike (while waking in cleated shoes) to the stop light.
So here again lies the questions:
1. If you were in the cyclist’s position, would you have taken that ride? Mind you, I’m female, cyclist in question was male.
2. Have you ever taken a lift from a random stranger due to technical issues with your mobility?
