Ever help jump a stranger's car?

Recommended Posts

Or rather, push it until it started?

Funny thing happened today. My girlfriend and I were coming out of Burger King today (yes it's bad for us, but I care not). There was a white late 90's Civic parker about 1/3 of the way into a spot near teh building. We walked past it, wondering why it was like that, if it had died or if the driver was just really bad at parking. Unlock the car and open up the doors when one of the two guys asks if I can jump it.

I said sure, but I don't have cables. Do you? He said he didn't, but asked if I could help he buddy push the car and he'd try a rolling start. I said no problem (I'm so kind). I walked over and we got ready while teh driver mentioned the car being a pain in the ass. I so wanted to say something about ditching the Honda for something Domestic that you know, starts, like my car (or even the Shadow, oh the irony that would have been if we had taken it). But I couldn't think of something to say without sounding rude and they seemed nice enough so I didn't. I helped push the car backwards and after 3 tries he managed to start it. He said thanks and drove off to the exit. I got back in my car and ended up behind him before he pulled out of the lot.

That's my good deed for the day. I love irony :D

Speaking of not starting....

Both my dad's F250 and my brother's Ranger wouldn't start yesterday. Cold weather apparently killed the batteries. Must be a Ford thing... Even the Beast started, and it's starting to self destruct.

I'm going to have to check the Balt's battery after this cold snap...it struggles to start.

It was dine until the cold snap...I'll test it as soon as it warms up....
