So I was out running some errands today. I stopped to get gas at a station, and as I went in to pay, I noticed an old Asian guy talking to a white guy at the pump island, but I didn't think anything about it at the time. After I paid for my gas and came back out to my car, the Asian guy approached me and in very broken english and a series of hand signs, I realized he was asking for a jump. This guy, Koren?,Chinese? Cambodia? Who the hell knows, except that he was some sort of Asian, was maybe around 65 years old. At least if he was a white guy, that would be my estimate, but with those little Asian guys, who the hell knows? So I said sure. I swung my car around to give the guy a jump. When I did, I noticed the person the asian guy was talking to when I first pulled in, was one of the pump jockeys. This cat was giving me a hellish stare down as I popped the hood of my car, and helped the old guy hook up the cables. The old guys car started, and he went into this bowing and thankyou routine. So I said you're welcome and have a nice day. The pump jockey comes up to me and seys âDude, you better collect $65.00 for thatâ. What? I said. He went on to tell me that I was the fifth person the old guy had ask for a jump. Two wanted a $100 bill to âhelp outâ, the pump jockey wanted $65.00 to help the guy out, and the other two wouldn't help him for any price. I told him fuck man, I was just helping the guy out, and I got into my car. Just before I drove away, the pump jockey told me that they had already called a tow truck because the old guy wouldn't cough up the extortion money. What the hell is this country coming to? How could we let kindness become so socially unacceptable? Anyway, I don't know if this issue is âpolitics?â, âreligion?â, or unimportant chit-chat.
