Im disgusted with carelessness of citizens

We had over 15cm of snow last night. I was leaving my house, about 3 blocks from my house, coming up to an intersection where i see a small car stuck and 1 poor old lady pushing (or trying to, she was struggling) with the other driving. Theres 3 SUVs behind her waiting and not one single person gets out to help them!

So I pull up, get out and give them a hand. As I get out, I could clearly hear her asking "can someone please help us?" And not one moron could help? I look back at the drivers of the 3 SUVs behind sitting there waiting and theyre all sipping on their coffee! Just pathetic. I bet you if these 2 ladies were young and hot, these people would get out in a heartbeat but they were both overweight. It shouldnt matter, help the poor people out! So few mins after I got them out of the rut and off they go.

Absolutely pathetic that 3 cars would rather sit there idling, wasting gas, sipping on their overpriced starbucks coffee, probably listening to Celine Dion and watch 2 old overweight ladies struggling to push a 2000lb car up a a bit of a slope. Those people should be ashamed of themselves.

98% of people are stupid and selfish. This is to be expected.

This.

In fact, I would have been surprised if I witnessed people helping the two women out. That's how little faith I have in kindness and humanity these days.

Pretty bad if they're sat looking at an old woman trying to push her car in the snow.

Yes Canada. Lately, the people here have been so careless, I very seldomly see people getting out and offering to help cars stuck in snow - and it happens a lot here.

Its not just snow, but accidents. People here just drive, look, drive, look some more, "oh hey, bad accident, that guy looks hurt ouch" and drive right by instead of considering pulling over to see if the people inside the car are ok and need help.

People here just mind their own business and mozy on to where they have to go. Very insulting. Whatever happened to random acts of kindness to strangers?

I'd be disgusted too if I weren't so apathetic about it.

Just kidding. Yeah, stuff like this bothers me too. You see it all the time, especially on the roads.

I see random acts of kindness a lot. Maybe you've just hit a bad streak.

They didnt get much excersize cause once I got in the car, they didnt push. It was at a slope and the tires were all seasons and looked pretty bare. I have to rev it up to the moon to get it up over the slope but managed.

Pretty sad, but not surprising. Especially over here most people just like to mind their own business.

Saw this guy yelling at this kid in a mini cooper the other day when he couldn't get his car to go. He was blocking the left hand turn lane, not sure if it was a stick and he flooded it but he was obviously upset and all this guy could do is yell at him. How about you help him get it started or help push it out of the way?

In Canada it's CAA. Although both AAA and CAA are somewhat affiliated.

All your posts are stupid anecdotal stories that don't amount to jack squat. I see people helping other people all the time. Does this discount your experience? No. Stop posting junk stories as evidence that something greater is or is not happening.

Totally acceptable, they're not young and hot. I'm not sure what you're trying to get at with this thread.
