Just a curiosity question. Monday as I was about to leave for work I discovered my battery was dead â dome light was on all weekend. All of my neighbors had already left so there was no assistance nearby. I live at the edge of a small town, pop. 900, on the state highway leading into town. This is a rural area in Nebraska, and generally drivers will wave or nod hello as they pass. So, I stood next to the highway holding jumper cables in my hand. As a car or pickup approached, I held the cables up and smiled what I hoped was a friendly but forlorn smile. Nearly everybody who passed smiled and nodded to me â but no one stopped to help. Admittedly, my car was around the corner and they couldnât see it there with the hood open, however I was very surprised no one figured out why I was holding those cables up. Honestly I donât know for sure I would have stopped. Would you?
