I did my good deed today - Have you?
 
On my way to the 4x shop to pick up some stuff today on my lunch hour, and what do I see along the highway, but a YJ with its hood up. I can't pull over right away, I was way over in the left hand lane. So I get off at the next exit and get back on the highway going the other way, go back to the next off ramp (5km - 3miles) and turn around. I get back to the YJ and pull over. It is a middle aged couple - stock YJ, top off - which is unusual given that there were thunderstorms around. I ask if I can help, and the guy nearly has a heart attack, he didn't see me pull off. He says he is just waiting for CAA (Auto Club) and he thinks he ran outta gas, but the gauge reads 1/4 full, but he has travelled over 500km - 300 miles on this tank. He also says it sputtered like it was outta gas. I say over 500 Km on one tank, Pal you are outta gas. I offered him a lift, but he says no he will wait for CAA, I didn't have any spare gas with me, or I would of put some in.

Just sharing my good deed, never know, it could be me at the side of the road and no cell phone. Would you stop?

The beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad, so I had one more for dessert.

Tis a heart warming thing to do. I changed the tire on a brand new Grand Cherokee last friday for a lady because she had no idea of how to do it herself.

Made me feel real good to help someone else.
