H2-Slow, Part 18

, , , , , | Friendly | May 10, 2018

I noticed a car stopped on the side of the road with the hood open and smoke coming out of the engine, so I pulled in behind it. I got out and approached the driver, asking him if he needed anything, wanted a ride into town — about another 3km — needed to borrow my phone, etc.

He said that his engine was overheating, he thought he was low on coolant, and he was just hoping to let it cool down and try to limp it into town. I asked if some water would help get it there, and he said it probably would. I went back to my car and got out one of the 5L bottles of water I keep stashed inside, and handed it to him. He promptly undid the lid, turned it upside down, and poured it directly all over his still-smoking engine. Then, he smiled and thanked me.

I backed away slowly, maintaining eye contact, then got in my car and out of there as quickly as I could!
