This one is funnier than my last "rescue".
Last night I was on my way home and I saw a Ford Expedition sticking out of a snow bank on the side of a farm field, with the rear driver's side tire about 2 feet from the ground.
I asked her if she was OK, then asked if she had tried to back out yet. She said that she had, but the tires just spun. Since the front tires were firmly in the snow, I asked her to try again. Since the front tires didn't move at all, I asked if she put the truck in 4x4 yet. She looked confused, then said "no".
I advised her to put the truck into four wheel, shift into reverse, then lightly touch the gas. The truck started to move, but then she gunned it and spun the tires again.
Since she managed to firmly stick herself once again, I told her that I could drive into the field, then tug her out.
Once she was free, and on a flat surface, I unhooked the tow strap and told her to drive back on to the road. I told her not to stop in the deep snow, but to continue her momentum until she was back on the road.
I watched her attempt this, but saw the brake lights light up as soon as she hit the snow drifts. I got her out of the deep snow again, then told her to try again without stopping. She tried again, but just couldn't keep her foot off the brake.
Frustrated and cold, I told her to get into the passenger side. I hopped into the drivers seat, and first shot she was back on the road.
