YDi for short shorts.
Wearing shorts and flip flops is actually preferable in the rain. Skin dries off much faster than clothing. The alternative would have been to wear long pants (unless you decided to wear a skirt; though I'd imagine it wouldn't be fun wearing one while having to bend down and change your tire) and regular shoes, meaning your socks would have become damp as would have your pants. Now THAT would have sucked.
I cannot stand people that rely on other people and AAA to do things for them that should be common knowledge. Everyone that thinks they have the right to drive a vehicle, should be responsible for knowing how to change a tire on said vehicle and use a set of booster cables. Both are so very simple, yet so few people know how to do either one. I've known how to do both since I was eight years old. I'm now 18 and have had to change three tires at the side of the road.
84- Having Roadside Assistance, or AAA, doesn't mean you don't know how to change a tire, or jump start a car. I know how to, however, if I break down, I'd rather pay a professional to come and do it, rather than me do it on the side of the road. Plus, it's more often much more handy. Like it's dark, or you're in your business clothes for work.
84 - If you didn't drive like a reckless moron and weren't so hard on your tires, you wouldn't have had to change them. Besides, that's like saying everyone should know how to fix a computer. It's not going to happen and this is why we pay people who can and do it for a living.
People can be such dicks these days. Sorry about that OP, but I am glad you got home safe :)
I'm not a misanthrope, but expecting people to help you in a pouring rain is too much to ask. If you saw someone changing their tire, would you get yourself soaked to help them?
Color me paranoid, but I almost never stop to help anyone on the road. While I'm sure most people are fine, There's always that awful nagging thought of "what if they're just trying to mug me or sell me to the black market?" people are hard to trust these days
They probably honked for your outfit..but yeah, unfortunately world is full of people who simply don't give a shit about anybody else but themselves. Sorry op, I don't know where are you from (mobile app doesn't show it) but if you have there a service like AAA, get it...very helpful at times.
1.You shouldn't wear flip-flops when driving. 2.Maybe they were honking in support?
At least you didn't loose control from the blow out and crash! It happened to me while in a cab with my family but we luckily skid into and were halted by the median along the shoulder. Either way, it's good you got out ok. P.S. short shorts are for noobs.
I'm sorry OP! Don't give up on humanity just yet, I would have helped you... Sorry those bastards didn't stop, was just a bad run. Most people are wonderful and will go out of their way to help! Am I right people or am I right?
