came along to make sure I was OK, that a tow truck was on the way and to check that I wasn't a hazard to traffic where I was.
He even waited 5 minutes while I was on a borrowed cell phone talking to AAA!May the FORCE be with you!

On a down note, I saw a t shirt the other evening in Sweetbay that if indeed the person wearing it is a police officer then it reflects badly on him and a police culture which would lead him to believe that it's acceptable to wear such a shirt.
I decided to assume that he was not a real police officer, maybe a guard or something.
Of course, I just happened to be wearing my favorite shirt: A free people ought to be armed.

Not long after 9/11, the former Mrs. Wiggum & I bought a brand new automobile. I worked in the western 'burbs of Chicago, on my way on an expressway one Friday morning when I noticed that all the cars in front of me were swerving wildly. Figured out why when I saw this giant hunk of metal in the road, which I guess everyone was running over. Only had one flat tire thankfully, as did about 20 other cars who pulled over.
Only about 900 miles on the thing, had never looked to check the spare or jack situation. It was all there, so went ahead & started putting the spare on. Maybe it was the proximity to O'Hare, don't know for sure, but a cop pulled up to myself & all of the other cars repairing their flats. He asked for license/registration/insurance. Thought that was really odd, was just fixing a damn flat.
Made it to work a bit late, no big deal. Went to get a new tire during my lunch hour & the dude at the tire shop had the gall to ask if I wanted four new ones. He had already written down the mileage, and I gave him a look like...WTF??? Just one please.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

As a single women who didn't always buy a new car every 5-7 years, I've been helped by cops when I've had car trouble. They call a tow, usually, and once, pushed my car off the road.
A guy in Army fatigues once stopped and put my spare on for me when I had a flat.
