umm, i generally help out anyone, especially if its during the day time... if they need a $1 or a ciggie (back in the day when i HAD them) i'd give them one... and helping ppl with directions if i knew where the were going... so one day i hope all the good stuff i do for stranges will be returned
If a person asked for help I would, but in NEW YORK any wrong move and there is a confrontation, sometimes people don't want your help or are to stubborn or stuck up to accept it. Its a situation by situation thing.
Yes, absolutely. Sometimes, it's definitely not wanted though.
Earlier this week, I stopped to help this elderly gentlemen with his 50 bottles of soda that he had knocked over because one had fallen about 10 feet (it was above his head) and started to leak everywhere (on him, etc...) and he screamed "Don't HELP me!!!" in the meanest way. I was mortified by his behavior. I can only imagine what would have happened if I told him that he had his shoes on the wrong feet.
