So the wife wakes me up at 0300: I hear voices outside! (rural highway)
So the wife wakes me up at 0300: I hear voices outside! There's a car out there. I think they've been in an accident!
Wife: WAKE UP! There's been an accident... or something. There's people out there. They might need help.
Wife: If you don't go out there, I will!
Me: OK, OK... grrr...
(Wife just had abdominal laparascopic surgery Tuesday, and I know she's serious about going outside)
So I follow her to the front door and we step outside. Across the street and down about 100 yards is a car with dim tail lights.
Wife: Ask them if they are OK.
Me: (Peering through the darkness)
Wife: ASK THEM IF THEY ARE OK!
Me: YOU OK?
Stranger: Do you have jumper cables?
Me: Hold on.
So I go back in, throw on a jacket, toss the snubbie in a pocket, then back out and get the guy and his female coworker jumped and back on their way. He said his car overheated and they had been out there about an hour.
Before and after had a few (more) words with the wife about opening the door, helping strangers, etc. Unfazed.
