But then again... how many people still go out of their way to help people?

And when they do... usually you get a weird look.

In the last month I've stopped to offer the new neighbour a hand carrying drywall into his house, helped push one stalled car off to the side of the road, helped one woman change her tire at 1am in a bad part of town (which was probably even scarier than if I didn't stop - mine is not the face of "helpful motorist") and probably a few other minor things - holding doors open and the like.

I kind of get a laugh about the quick "what's your angle" look when I offer to help.
