But apparently old fat white guys in the suburbs are THE new terror threat, because she acted like I was holding a bloody axe or something. Barely cracked the window and then said she'd already called a bunch of her male friends (and she emphasized male) and they were right behind her and would be here any minute.

Anyway, I could tell she was freaked out, so I said ok, and pointed out that there was a gas station just around the corner if she needed to walk to one, even though you couldn't see it, and went home. Disappointed that people would get freaked out by an offer of help.

So kudos to xeniac for not only being appreciative, but proactive. Hope you find your knight.

BTW, I always stop if I see someone in distress. We all should - would make things a better place.

At least until I get rolled late one night by someone playing possum...then I swear it's ON!
she wouldn't have been scared if you had some bud light

i never really get hassled too much when i stop to help with my other car... i think that part of it is based on what you are driving as well as what you look like... big, beefy jeeps look a lot more intimidating than a silver 2001 toyota echo...

That may be, but a "manly" type vehicle might give you more credibility in the sense that you MUST know something about fixing vehicles lol.

Everytime i pull over to help someone (in washington, but in Vancouver) people are always gracious. but then again i am 18 and have gov't stickers on my jeep so most assume i am a nice enough person. it ussually takes for ever for someone to help me though. espeically when stranded on I-5.

Just wanted to thank everyone who has messaged me with ideas for other places to look. No luck yet, but you never know!

I got a chance to stop a few weeks back to help someone who was out of gas. I've been wanting an excuse to use my TJ tub trailer's gas tank so when I saw this older red Corolla I whipped over to the side of the freeway. I think this lady thought I was weird for being all excited about helping, she was looking at me really weird. I pulled the trailer up beside her, hooked up the power wire to the back of my jeep, stuck the hose in her tank (don't say it), flicked the switch, and voila! Gas started flowing! Gave her 3 gallons to get her going again and took off.

(I installed a factory 19 gallon gas tank back into the bottom of my TJ trailer, wired up a factory fuel pump, and ran a hose into the bed of the trailer so I have a mobile fueling station. Great for weekend trips into the forest or just filling my lawn mower.)

I'm stationed at Ft. Lewis, live near Bridgeport and Gravelly Lake Dr., and drive a dark blue Jeep. Too bad it's spent the past 12 months on the POV storage lot and I've been in Iraq for that time.

The guys are right, when a female pokes their head in it's kind of hilarious. Kind of like a working man's bar and a new female to the area walking in. Same idea.

Xeniac, good to hear it all turned out for you.

I know it kind of reminds me of the time when a bunch of us girls went to Yakima for a bachelorette party and got a round of applause from all the guys in the bar we walked into. Are there no women in Yakima? lol

Yes I got lucky and maybe my luck will continue and I'll find the guy
