Default "That's girl power right there" (funny towing story)

So I'm leaving my boyfriends house last night and making my way down the back roads to go home. All is well, I'm rocking out to 105.7 the X on my radio, and hitting any snow I possibly can, playing.

Well I stop at a stop sign and while looking for oncoming cars I notice a little car sideways in the roing traffic. With being a ex fire squirrel (EMS), my tail fluffs and naturally I have to make sure every things ok. So I drive up, stop behind traffic and jog on up to make sure all is well.

Come to find out a group of kids and their mom in Neon were coming down the road hit some ice and ran into a snow bank, blocking both lanes of traffic. Some lady in a minivan had stopped to make sure all was well and was telling me what had happened.

So knowing how everyone is scared to help people now days I offer to help them, and pull out their car. The mom and kids kinda give me an odd look, I tell them I have a truck and can pull them out. They agree.

Jogging back up to the truck, I hop in and pull behind the Neon. Grabbing my tow hooks I crawl under the Neon hook to the tow hook and hook up to the truck. All the while I can hear one of the kids going "oh my god, this is bad ass, a chicks pulling us out of the snow." Then the mom pipes in with "that's girl power right there".

I pull the truck forward and wa-la the Neon is out of the snow. Hopping back out I unhook the Neon and my truck all while being questioned on how I knew how to do that. I explain I work on auto's, then take my leave.

Was a great ending to a day. I love helping people out. Plus hearing the funny comments as a chick does this stuff it's quite funny

That reminds me of the time my ex-g/f pulled a stalled Datsun out of 2+ feet of water with my truck.

Nice job. You're right about people being afraid to help others. I thought about putting a tow strap in my truck but ultimately rconsidered. I'd hate to have some jerk sue me because he was convinced I damaged his vehicle while trying to pull him out of a ditch.

That's one of the reasons I generally don't offer up a lot of help anymore when someone's stuck. It's sad that the world has come to this point.

Awesome! Sounds like something my wife would do given the opportunity (and if she was driving my truck and not her corolla).

Cool story! Bet they were glad you happened to be a chick driving a truck who knew how to use tow straps.
