Last week I was helping a person with a plumbing problem when I got a call from her friend who was having car problems. She thought she would be able to make it home, so I waited just in case she didn’t. Well, she made it; but the car was making an awful noise. Even I could hear it! She wanted to take the car to her mechanic that night. I followed her so that I could give her a ride back home. We made it to the intersection of 360 and Lee-Davis Road before the car quit in the turn lane heading to the BP and Walgreen’s side. I got out to try to push her car off the road. Traffic was thick, but no one stopped to help me. They only blew their horns. I couldn’t push it out of the way, so we blocked traffic for over half an hour waiting for a tow truck.
Times have surely changed. In years past when you were pushing a car, other men would get out to help. People today are not showing the love of God or even Southern hospitality. I thank the two men who stopped and helped my wife when she broke down many years ago on I-295.
