It is warmer today, only -35 C, woo-hoo!
I have a story to share. I just arrived home from dropping off my boys to school. It is only 8.53 AM here and Winter days mean morning is always dark, right. Well on the drive to school, boys and I saw a white truck stuck in the snow. I was saying, oh shoot, mommy cannot help, that is a deep snow bank they drove to. But on the way home after dropping off the boys, I drove the same way, and saw the truck was still stuck, trying to get out. So I naturally stopped my car and approached it and offered a help. I couldn’t see the driver, a male or a female. The window is tinted and plus, dark morning.
He opened his door and said, “you push”, when I said anything I can help? So I went to the back of the car, put my thumb up signaling am good to push, he didn’t do no shit. I put my thumb up again, nothing. Waiting for a bit, finally he hit the gas. Truck still didn’t wanna move.
He opened door and said push from the front. I went to the front, and came out another guy from the truck, and I was like, the fuck. You had someone, a guy nonetheless, in the truck and didn’t help pushing? Weird. But then I realized the guy looked drunk or maybe high. Idk.
So we both pushed. Nothing happened. Then the driver said, you drive, I push. And I was like (in my head), gee no thanks. You guys look scary enough, sure I shouldn’t judge, but the fuck.
I said, sorry. I have to go to work. And hurried to my car and locked myself inside and quickly drove away.
I could have been kidnapped!
