    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!

    Me: Mmmffft?!?

    Wife: WAKE UP! There's been an accident... or something. There's people out there. They might need help.

    Me: Ummm...

    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.

    I've had this happen a bunch when I lived out in the country...I had a drunk stumble on to my porch and demand I give him a jack to fix his flat tire, I asked him where he was and he pointed and said about a mile up the road, I asked him why he walked a mile to my place when the area he claimed where his truck was is where alot more people live, he said I was the only one witha light on (the lights where out) I told him he was too drunk to be jacking a car and that the cops would be driving his way soon anyway...he got pretty irrate with me, I had my G21 on my side so I made sure he saw it...he quickly left after that.

    Personally, at 3:00 A.M. I would have had the "wife" call the cops on a non emergency to check it out.

    Wife: If you don't go out there, I will!
    Flame me all you want but I have to say something here. NO, NO, NO... grow some @@ bro! My woman will not, does not open the door for any one at night and or gives me an ultimatum "if you don't go, I will". if someone wants to risk their own life then do so but don't involve me. we live in a country for 25.00 a year you can get AAA and they show up and do things like this....

    Ha, my wife is not that friendly to strangers.

    She's a disabled ex-paramedic who was thrown down a flight of stairs by a mental patient. Her days of helping random strangers are over. She would have rolled over and went back to sleep.

    "Had a drunk banging on my door begging for a push. I say no and go back to bed. The drunk keeps banging on the door, please sir can I get a push. Finally the wife has had enough of the banging and tells me to give the poor man a push. I throw on the coat and walk outside not seeing a vehicle anywhere or the drunk. I walked around the house and he is sitting on my kids swing on the swing set and asks for a push"

    His battery dies while he sat for an hour waiting for the car to cool off, I guess. The lights were very dim until I hooked up the cables.

    At least you could prepare for evil when you went outside. You can NOT prepare enough for an irritated wife when you have to sleep sometime.

    That sounds like something that my wife would make me do, Paramedic.

    You kept her happy, kept yourself protected and helped somebody out. Sometimes, it's the best we can do.
