When to help?

Postby fg42lol » Tue Nov 26, 2013 10:40 pm

Alright so this isn't just WROL or ZPAW, but every day life too

When should someone pass up the opportunity to assist someone during travel and why? what signs should a do-gooder look for before making the decision to pull over for what could possibly be a trap?

If it's still daylight, I'll stop to help. After dark, I'm not that trusting.
Never hit first. Always hit back.

The only thing worse than a zombie trying to eat you, is a zombie trying to eat you while it is on fire.

I've been pulling a dick move at night. I'll shine a light in their face or pull up with my high beams on until I can figure out what's going on. that's just me.

How much cover is there for ambushers.

I will all so stop away from the locastion where they are. They must walk to me.

Am I in a group.

I've stopped before, but only when alarm bells aren't going off. I'd probably never stop if I'm with my family.

This is not the world I grew up in.
Things have changed for the worse.
This country is rapidly becoming a third world shit hole.

I doubt I would stop unless it was something I saw happen like an accident.

It's situational, especially at night.

Slow down, like FG said, observe with a flashlight or headlights.
Stop a ways down the road, call the cops.

It is a much different world today.

When I first started driving it was almost mandatory to stop and help stranded motorists.

Hate to say it, but in this 21st century you have to be even more wary of women as well. Those "damsels in distress" might be the ones that jack you for your money and your ride. I would be more apt to help out a woman with small children or infants, as they pose the least threat and might need the most help. I haven't helped out anyone in quite a number of years nor really run into this kind of situation in about the same time. Cellphones seem to have decreased these occurrences but if all hell breaks loose, it turns into tip toe through the minefields!
