Don’t expect much from people and you won’t be disappointed.

A while back we talked about people that were ‘fixers’ and that did repairs and such on their own. Well, we fixers are a small and dwindling lot. I may be the last on my side of the family. Everyone else in the family has to call someone else to fix just about everything that breaks or fails.

Edit: I wasn’t finished, but the cat was puking and I had to clean it up. Back to being ‘fixers’…I think fixers, like probably most on the forum, would take time to help folks - grass fire, flat tire, and such as that. That’s the mind set we have. Personally, I’m not one to video somebody else’s disaster and not step in.

When I was 12 I accidentally caught Richland College campus on fire. Not a little fire either, but almost the entire East side. 35 mph winds proved the wrong time to be flying model rockets and what started out as a fire about the size of driveway quickly became the size of several football fields. The grass was cut real low, so it just burned on the perimeter, but the wind spread it very fast. People were running from the tennis courts and everywhere trying to help. I remember my feet getting so hot and the bottom of my shoes melting from dragging them across the flames trying to put it out. The wind was just too strong. 3 fire trucks showed up and got it out right before it hit the neighborhood. Probably the most scarred I’ve ever been.

You would think people would know better, that’s a no no.

I sat in the ditch west of Wingate for two hours one evening from 5-7pm. Over 200 cars, nobody stopped until a van-load of church campers helped me out. Same spot two years later, guy that passed me 10 miles back is sitting there-I pulled over, his Ecoboost lost a head gasket. He had already called somebody but at least I offered.

I try to stop when I can and would definitely have helped in OP's situation. Bunch of losers. Revoke their Texas membership.

Maybe I got a sign from God one day. Dad sent me to a neighboring town to get something, and he wanted it quickly. I was motoring along in his truck, and there was the Methodist Minister with a flat tire. I honked the horn and kept going. On the way back, I had a flat in just about the same place. Here comes the Minister. He honked and kept going.

they were too busy getting video for YouTube and TikTok. Witnessed two people throwing cig butts out the window yesterday morning along 380 in McKinney. Real pieces of chit...nasty smokers.

You can pretty much bet your boots some dumb a$$ threw a cigarette out to start the fire.

This is what I don't get about smokers. If it's so nasty you don't want it in your vehicle...why are you putting it in your mouth and body?

It amazes me how many idiots throw cigarettes out the window. I do a lot of driving before sunrise for work and see cigarettes flying out windows almost daily. It’s a wonder they don’t start more fires than they do.

I saw something today that made me stop and think about all the grass fires we see along the side of the roads. We always hear about how they were started by someone throwing out a cigarette, someone dragging tow chains, etc. What I saw today was a guy towing a smoker trailer with the firebox still lit. Its pretty common with competition rigs but has to be a accident waiting to happen in times like these.

I’ve seen that also. Put that thing out!

I've helped stomp fires out on the side of roads and had people just drive by. I was once a cop and had many fights in public and see people standing around watching. The funny ones called the Chief later to tell him how traumatized they were by watching me take these people into custody. Worthless [censored].
