I was talking to one of the mechanics at my local garage today when a woman entered the office. She said that she?d been parked in the town car park and a car had hit her wing mirror, which was hanging by its wires. Could someone fix it?
The mechanic went out to look, and came back five minutes later shaking his head in disbelief ? he?d relocated the mirror and checked it was secure, whereupon the woman just got into her car, and drove off !He said that he wouldn?t have charged anyway, but would have appreciated a ?thank you?.
I suspect that if she ever calls in with a more serious problem, all the mechanics are going to be busy.

a few years back a heavily pregnant lady came in to where i work, with a small kid in tow..... she had a flat tyre in a car park and was a bit distressed about it... i changed it for her and she was most thankful and drove off............she returned 10 mins later with a rather agreeable bottle of wine

Reminds me of the man who spent ages putting my tracking right at Just Tyres in Basingstoke - he thought it was going to be a simple job but it turned out not to be, and I could tell he just wanted to go home and watch the football! I felt a bit of a numpty going back with biscuits at the time, but I'm glad I did.

Similar story... a few years ago went to the local shops and spotted a Citroen AX with a flat and two young women about to empty the boot. I asked if they were looking for the spare (they were) and told them it was underneath in a cage.

In the end I swapped it for them (really difficult to undo some bolds) and they were grateful. In fact whilst I wad doing it one of them went to the supermarket opposite and bought a bottle of wine. They tried to give me the wine and in the end I accepted it but that was not the reason I'd stopped. But they were thankful.

And why did I stay to swap the tyre for them... another time this could be my wife stuck with a flat and I'd hope someone like me would help her too! Had to phone home because of the delay ... think I'd popped for milk or similar.

I think your attitude may be a little sexest rtj70 and I read your post hoping that you were single at the time, until you mentioned your wife.
I feel most men have an affinity of young women, I know I do. However I think that the percpetion of women being inept with cars is brought on by 1. Women knowing a man's always ready to help and so don't prepare, 2. Women and men having low expectations of womens compentancy with cars and 3. Mens willingness to help women. By taking each point in turn your can see points 1,2 and 3 are interconnected and shows perception that every man should stop for a woman in distress, through her lack of preperation.
Any woman is just as capable as a man in knowing how to change a tyre, or phoning the AA. The only disadvantage that women have is most, but not all, are physically less strong men men so prehapps making it harder to change a tyre etc.
I guess my exeption to your post is if I am stranded by the roadside I should not be passed by just because I am a man. Feminisim works both ways, men won't pander to women, but women won't be told they can't do things, indeed they will be expected to do things as well as men.
I must congratulate you in stopping for people in need however. Too many people (a vast majority) would just drive right past. It is always good when a stranger stops and helps you, and that is the spirit of this thread.
I can remember that I had a blown headlight (it was only on side lighting, when dipped) but my local independant change the bulb free of charge. Thank god for independants and people who come across as nice.

rtj70 - well done, and the same logic that I sue. Maybe its my wife who coudl do wiht the assistance.

mk124 - "you shouldn't stop and help someone just because they're a woman because that means you wouldn't help me and that isn't fair." What a very silly point of view.
customer behaviour.. - rtj70
No FM2R

My logic is indeed the same as yours... i.e. my wife would need help changing a wheel, especially one done up with a torque wrench and only having the standard wheel brace.

I hope I was not being sexist. As it happens the wheel brace in the AX was useless and I had to use the one from my car. And it took quite some effort to get the nuts moving. In fact they had already started to try to loosen the bolts and were failing. And I nearly failed too - they were that tight. It was seeing them struggling that led me to help.

My attitude also extends to warning people of blown bulbs when I can. But all too often they actually know they are gone but are surprised when I let them know they could get points and a fine.

I'll repeat again, if my wife needed assistance with her car I hope someone would help. e.g. she once misjudged the low fuel on her new car and ran out of petrol. Luckily very near a petrol station and some people helped push it for her to the petrol station.

rtj70, Bet you never worked for the Local Authority, regarding your " affinity of young women" :)
I used to carry a pile of spare bulbs in my tool kit and once said to a female colleague,
" Do you want me to put a new rear bulb in for you" having noticed she had a brake light out.
The response was as though I had made some sort of indecent proposal, *really* offended.
She drove around for weeks after, eventually having it replaced by another (hated) *man* at a garage, during a service.
Then there was the time I went through a door and just waited a second holding it open rather than let it slam in the face of another female colleague who was about 3 yards behind me. " you did that because I am a woman" said with venom...

Now who would let a spring loaded door slam in the face of another person, male or female?
and I used to pop the odd bulb in ( and more) in lunchbreaks for male colleagues too, who had no interest or knowledge of cars.
I had 22 years of this with feminist colleages and the challenge post retirement is to try to still treat all people the same, for example if seen struggling with a puncture.

Normally I would comment that such women were last in the queue for brains but, in this case, it would appear they weren't even in the queue.

I also find it interesting that some of the most aggressive and arrogant drivers I come across on the roads these days are women and that the percentage is rising all the time.

My sister always calls me when theres something shes not sure about on her MGF, even though i bought her a Womans Guide to Car Maintainance which is actually very useful if you have no knowledge of cars. The other day she didnt even know how to open the bonnet for goodness sake.
And yet my sister is one of those go-getters who works hard and always puts her best foot forwards.... excpt when it comes to cars in which case she throws her hands up in the air and calls someone to change a wheel.

I once changed a wing mirror for a friend of mines parents just as a favour as the glass and housing had been smashed. I worked at Rover main dealer and he had an old 214, so I got a big discount on the mirror and hoped to pass it onto my friends parents.
He also asked me to fit it - all of three screws and removing a small cover as it was a manual mirror. Took me 5 mins tops. I went in and gave him my invoice for the mirror which I believe came in at around £35 or so. He then gave me £70 and I said he didnt have to, I wasnt expecting to get paid - he said thats why I was!
They are stauch christians mind you and exceptionally nice people, so I guess I should have expected it really.

I always open the car door for my wife to get in and out because my old man did the same for my mother for as long as I can remember. When I last visited though, I noticed he'd stopped doing it and I have to say I was a bit disappointed, especially now she could really use the help.

The worst bit of ungentlemanly conduct I ever witnessed was in a Tesco car park some years ago. It was pouring down and I was parked up watching the couple opposite load their car from the shopping trolley. The bloke got straight into the car leaving his wife to do everything, empty a full trolley into the boot while he sat there on his lazy butt. It left a lasting impression on me, and to this day I regret not either helping her or dragging the rude git out and battering him with a tin of beans.

Yeah, a thoughtless use of an absolute I admit but don't make any assumptions about my Moniker. It's nothing more sinister than a term of affection used by my old business partner.

sorry, but i utterly disagree with your post.....

just because some in our society have become politically correct or are feminists, doesn't mean that all do...

furthermore there is no way i'm going to ignore a 'damsel in distress', just because some man who has a flat tyre might be offended either.........i'll follow my instincts and do what i wish to.

I do not consider women to be 2nd class either, just different. Not long ago we had a female Prime Minister and female Head of State and i'd willingly go back to that, compared to what we've got now.

I ask my wife to sew buttons on my shirt, not because i can't physically do it, but because she makes a better job of it than me and has more patience..........similarly i'm the one that washes the cars, fills them with fuel, mows the lawn, etc,etc because she doesn't want to be bothered with that.

in other words 'horses for courses'.

An old friend of mine, a lifelong asthma sufferer and now with diabetes too, was struggling up a staircase in a Belgian (I think) railway station a year or so back carrying a heavy suitcase, puffing and blowing a bit. A young fellow passing by took the suitcase out of his hand, bounded up the stairs and put it on the ground. Arriving at the top of the stairs, my friend thanked him and he replied: 'It is OK, I am young.' My friend thanked him again. The young man replied, in perfect English too:

'Perhaps one day, when I am old like you, a young person like me may help me in the same way. Good day.'

Apart from the sweetness of nature revealed, my friend, an academic, was very impressed by the perfect English, whose equivalent, he felt, would be hard to find in this country.

Knowing my lack of skill in getting my point across, I am loath to join in but... here goes!

I think the main point here is about civility, and politeness. As a male feminist, and no it's not an oxymoron, I will NOT do things for women just because they are differently genitalled. However, if a PERSON is struggling to do something, and obviously in distress, then I will assist if I can. There are plenty of ladies out there who CAN do the things we've talked about, or could if they learnt to. Obviously if us blokes are foolish enough to pander to their every request, then why would the lazy amongst them bother to learn? But most PEOPLE aren't like that. It takes a frightening or difficult situation to make people realise they need some basic skills, men or women.

I must admit I struggle with the opening the car door scenario..... my girlfriend is 27 and perfectly able-bodied, why do I need to help her get out of a car? That, to me, isn't "gentlemanly" it's just pointless. And before you all jump on my head, I open doors for people of all ages and both sexes, and will help people with suitcases, or bags or whatever. And if I had a wife or girlfiriend who was struggling with walking or other health things, then, yes I would assist. And I would hope that were the tables turned, she'd help me too!!

I will never be as sweet-natured as the Belgian of Lud's story, but I hope I am polite, civil, helpful and don't make this ridiculous distinction between men and women.

Excuse a slight tangent! As a slightly older person I appreciate good service when I get it. I am continually amazed at how many quite large shops seem to be run completely by teenagers or at the oldest, people in their 20s. I guess they are probably on the legal minimum wage, and maybe some staff discount, but it doesn't amount to a great living and I always thank them for their work and the service that I get. One such person chased after me the day other to return my wallet which had fallen on the floor when I 'missed' the pocket I thought I had put it into!

The other day my 3 month old microwave packed up. I took it back to Currys where I had bought it; with out slightest quibble they exchanged it on the spot; I got a new one with a new 12 month warranty and, because the price had gone down £50 since I bought it, I got a £50 refund! A charming member of staff took the new one out to my car and when I tried to discreetly tip him £5 he said that it was not necessary. I wrote a letter to head office, copied to the Branch Manager saying what good service I had had.

On balance I think that if we show appreciation for good service, as well as complaining at the bad, the World is a better place, for the customers and the workers! Pedant mode off!

The worst behaviour by a customer recently witnessed was on Saturday at a Lidl and the customer in question was the one behind me in the queue. I'd popped in to buy a set of wipers, also picked up some car mats and flowers for the wife. Anyhow the queue was moving slow with only 2 checkouts open, the 'lady' behind me starts moaning to me about the length of the queue, so I just smiled and said 'it doesn't matter which queue I'm in it's always the slowest'. So after a couple more minutes another till is opened and this lady goes ballistic complaining that people that were behind her are now being served (her goods are on the 'belt at this stage) and that she shops here all the time, etc. Frankly it was disgusting the way she went off, especially since she looked to be retired and so I presume could go shopping any day she wanted and should also be able to remember the days when there wasn't shops full of everything at good prices. I couldn't believe it just for the sake of 10 minutes.

Of course being hot-tempered can lead one to behave in a way that one regrets almost immediately, and queues either for check-out or for attention can wind one up.

Many years ago now, although it still makes me shudder to remember it, I was queuing at the local Pakistani supermarket for some cigarettes late in the evening. As I reached what I thought was the front of the queue, a geezer nipped in from the side and was attended to first. When the guy behind the counter turned to me I said, loudly and clearly, 'Twenty pink fluffy dice Players, please.'

'What?' the assistant asked. The man behind me in the queue found it hilarious and said: 'You heard the man, he asked for twenty pink fluffy dice Players!'

'I think you've had too much to drink,' the assistant said as he handed over the cigarettes. The apparent queue jumper had gone back for something while being attended to, but I had not noticed that. I was indeed as ripped as a stoat, but not about to admit it under the circumstances. My young daughter, deeply embarrassed, scolded me all the way home.

The next time I saw that assistant I apologised and told him he had been quite right, that I had been a bit ripped. He runs another shop now and we are still on friendly terms.

Always, always count up to ten before letting rip in those circumstances. I am blushing yet again as I write.

As I said above, I try my best to be egalitarian, civil and polite at all times..... but sometimes I get very upset if it's not reciprocated. Lud's story is EXACTLY the sort of thing that'd happen to me, I'd get all outraged at someone's perceived slight or lack of fair conduct, only to be proved absolutely 100% wrong. And, more than likely, "as ripped as a stoat".

Spot on, Mr Shanks. Same goes for waiters and waitresses, I can remember doing THAT thankless task for the terminally overpaid in a posh hotel in Cheshire. I don't think many of the people there could remember a time when they weren't pompous old fools with more sense than money. When someone took the time even to speak to me, or god forbid, tip me, I almost cried.

We all can think of surly service from such people, but they're not ALL like that, and we don't know without talking to them what they're like...

Garage staff are the same. I think we all have the stereotype of the surly person on the phone with the beeping in the background as he ignores the people taking the hose out of the pump.... but the people at my local garage are without exception friendly, amusing and efficient. Some are young and obviously students or the like, some are retired and working part-time... it's very refreshing.

>>I treat people as they treat me.

For once I'm being serious.

I really do not agree.

Firstly I try not to apply other people's standards to my behaviour. Whether that is my driving or as simple as being polite. If I did that I would be no better than them. Its not awlays feasible and sometimes I get annoyed, but generally I know the standards I believe to be correct and try to stand by them.

Secondly, if them being rude to me makes me rude, then me being rude make is going to make them really rude. Etc. etc. etc. Escalation and no end in site.

I do believe that people should pay or be rewarded for their behaviour, but that is usually possible without slipping to theri level.

Consequently I treat people as I would like them to treat me, and get my own back some other way fi they do not.

I open doors for people of all ages
and both sexes,

Absolutely agree, however I have met the arrant feminist who was approaching the same door as I, but from the opposite direction (glass door ) I opened the door and stood to one side so she could go through the door first.
She said loudly " I can perfectly well open doors for myself!"
I am ashamed to admit that I just let go of the door so she had to do just that.

It hasn't stopped me from continuing to behave in what I regard as perfectly normal polite manner.

However and also relevant to this thread, I can recall my mother many years ago was travelling to look at a horse (up in Norfolk I believe) with our elderly and very un-mechanical groom. She had a puncture, and neither of them were able to change the wheel.
Mother told him to hide behind the hedge so she could stand and look the damsel in distress, and before long a gentleman stopped and helped her.
After he had driven off she told him to come out of hiding!! She knew that it was unlikely - even back then 1950s - that anyone would stop if she had a man with her.

As it happens I helped a young lady change a wheel outside our house yesterday morning, but to be fair her male friend who came to help her was equally clueless when it came to changing a wheel (even after reading the cars handbook).

it's a shame that in this country, an old person (and including me) would expect a youngster who grabbed their bag not to stop at the top of the stairs but to continue running, disappearing and adding to the petty theft statistics for the train station. That reaction explains a lot as there is very little trust or sense of community left in this country.

I love going into shops/restaurants/whereever and making the effort to have a chat with the people serving; inevitably I get better service, but the main reason is that the whole experience is better all round. Doesn't cost anything but makes for a nicer day.

The world in which you live is a reflection of you; spend all day scowling and fighting and it'll be a sad place to be as all you'll see are scowls and anger.

I'm with Mark on how to behave to others- treat as you would expect to be treat-with the caveat that I'm no better or worse than anyone else, treating the porters at work with the same respect as the Chief Exec.

Where we always had a couple of 'breakers', which were used to fill with scrap before recycling - cheaper than a skip, quite often people would ask if we had an old...(obscure part). If we did. or had one 'in the shed', Iid always ay help yourself & there's a money box in the office, for a local animal sanctury & invite them to put a few pennies in. Most were more than happy & sometimes quite generous.

As for the 'could someone have a quick look' customers... rather than mess about invoicing for quickie jobs, we'd just get one of the lads to take an early break 7 suggest the customer would give him a 'drink' for his time.
