I worked the evening shift and I was on my way home on I-20 East in Atlanta, GA. I was almost home when I saw a 1.8t Jetta on the side of the road, hazard lights on and all. So I pulled over to help the fellow dubber. It turned out to be a 30 year old woman and her young child, stranded in the cold. She had turned the car off because she said the CEL light was flashing. So I asked her to start it and it started rumbling like a old lawn mower starved of fuel. I had heard the many stories on the tex about coils failing so I knew what it was. She said she called Roadside Assistance and they told her about 60-90 mins for a Tow truck and it was cold as hell. Georgia is in the cold. Feels like Chicago at around 10-15 degrees. I had two spare packs in the first aid kit spot. I really wanted to be selfish and not give them away, but I guess two is enough and I could always order another. I played musical coilpacks and it turned out the be the #3 pack. She was on her way and really appreciated it. It's sad that a young child had to endure the freezing cold because of VW (or Bremi). VW needs to find a new vendor, or pay the high prices hitachi was charging them for the packs. VW owes me a cool fitty. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Re: I really felt sorry for her... (droopy1592)

That is a great story, I saw a NB the other day on the side of the freeway with hazards, thought the same thing but I didn't have any coilpacks. You should have given her your address so she could send it back to you once she went to the dealer to get one. Either way, very thoughtful of you, I know I would feel good about my self for days. That is worth the $50 plus the happiness off the mother and child.

Man, I work in Business communications. I give good service... please, no nasty comments. I got her number and she said she would pay for it... I won't ask, but if she offers it's nice. I am a generous guy. I give away stuff... when I think people deserve it.

So...was she totally stunned that you happened by with exactly the right obscure part? Or was she not knowledgable enough to really appreciate the magnitude of her luck?
I'm thinking, this has got to be a major way to pick up chicks....except to them it's nothing more than car working / car not working, nothing special.

Wow, living proof that the human species is not doomed. Good job and sleep well tonight. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I'll bet that woman has no idea how astronomically lucky she was.

Was she hot??
Women are just about at their sexual peak when they're that age...you could have cashed in bigtime!
Reminds me of something my grandpa used to say when he'd see a MILF at the mall or something...."Hey mother, want another?"

If you really knew the average 30 year old I don't think you'd be saying that, nor taking that approach. But your post was pretty funny!!!
