Well I don't know if there has already been a post on this subject but I just need to say this ! The other day I was on a 30 min ride and about half way in I had a chain malfunction with a broken link. So I pedaled to the closest major intersection with a service station and as I did not have a master link with me as I don't use them (very weak) nor did I have a chain breaker with me I had only one way that I know of to fix this and I needed a tool for that as well. Thinking that the service station would ether not have it or if they did they would not let me use it I thought it's worth a shot ! So I went in and told them of my situation and asked them if they had a hammer thinking no way in **** are they going to have it but to my shock they sure did and they let me use it as well ! So while I am doing this crude repair to my ride there were people going in and out of the service station store. Keep in mind that it is around 11:00 pm and I noticed a lady that had gone in the store and back out to her car but had not left and after about 5 min she very quietly says excuse me excuse me do you need help or like a ride somewhere ? Now you must also keep in mind that I am a long haired hippy type and she in her benz ! I kindly told her that I would be fine and thanked her for her offer to help ! I know that if it were me in the car I would have done the same but never expected for someone to offer to help me ! I was touched that a stranger was willing to help and I want to say thanks to all of you out there that would take the time to even at least offer to help someone who looks like they may need help ! So thank you ! And to the rest of you you should maybe think about if it were you that needed help ! Just sayin !
