Two uni student-age ladies in distress... they've basically got their little car stuck in a small 'ditch' right outside the front of my townhouse... one wheel hanging suspended in mid-air, stuck quite fast [the joys of front-wheel drives].
The owner/driver was quite upset, but I reassured her there was no damage to her car (I checked underneath with a flashlight, and it was sitting on a 'good bit' underneath! hehheh].
But her drunken girlfriend that with her was... well, she started giving me some attitude. I was not impressed! I felt ready to give her a slap or something... especially after I suggested a way to offer help...
"Ring some guys from your dorms at Uni, and get them down here to physically pick-up the car and lift it and get it unstuck...", I suggested.
So they quickly rang... four big burly guys turned up five minutes later, lifted the car off, and they're away. No damage done.
But yeah... one of the girls was more upset that she was missing "Ladies Night" and drinking time than about helping her girlfriend with her stuck car. What a bitch.
The actual driver was lovely, and I was very happy to see her sense of relief after a simply harmless accident was all over.
The driveway here is especially designed NOT for cars! She was simply trying to turn-around in the darkness, and went off the edge. It's the kind-of driveway everyone must back down in reverse, rather than try to turn-around in. But yeah... no damage done, to her or her car, thankfully.
A bit of excitement in an otherwise dull day!
Peas be with ewe
