    Default Snow woes....

    Had acall from my wife "stuck on a hill in the snow", se said she was there for 20 mins with people behind her, and not one got out to help????
    By the time I got there with my shovel, another man in a van at a nearby junction also got out with a shovel and we both cleared a lot of snow and ice, and then I got the car moving, went sideways many a time, very scary, but got there in the end.
    I dont know about you, but if someone was stuck in front of me for more than a couple of minutes, I would get out and help, whats the point of sitting behind a stuck car????
    Dont understand it myself....

    I have to say I probably wouldn't one being I'd be the one stuck and two I'm a woman and never know what I might come across in the dark. I hate it and feel so bad not stopping but I could be risking my life in some cases.

    everyone seems to help everyone else round here, i've been stuck a few times and every time someone gets out to help, i've lost count of the amount of peolpe i have pushed and dug out..

    I must admit most people wouldnt stop but it depends on circumstances. I came across a Mercedes stuck yesterday. I wouldve stopped and gave a push but i was late for a job interview as it was. Dont get me wrong i felt bad but i just couldnt spare 10 mins to stop.
