I'm currently sitting in my car, which is currently located in the ditch.. You gotta love the snowy landscapes as a car driver.
I've been sitting here for the past 1.5 hours now. About 30-35 or so cars have drove past me, about three of them stopped to see if I was okay. Ironically I'm next to a truck service place, I asked them for help, but they outright refused to.
I'm hoping that someone could help me so I don't have to call the tow truck, but it looks like I'm out of luck.
@hund Oh man! What country/state is it? In Russia, you would be surrounded by other fellow drivers and they would pull/push you out even via their bare hands for what it's worth.
@hund it looks like it, unfortunately. Well, it's not that far from Russia:) You have my invitation to visit Saint-Petersburg after the covid ends. You would need to rent a place to stay on your own, though:)
However, I'm showing you the city and places in the area.
@hund Please be safe. And better call the tow. At least, spend some time in a warm place. I hope truck service folks could provide you with a temporary shelter at least.
@hund Why didn't the three that stopped help you? This sounds a bit odd... you can not be in a rural place. There is quite a cultural difference between rural and urban.
@shellkr It's a rural area. It was literally next to a trucker repair place on a farm. They had tractors and everything, but they refused to help me when I asked them in person. :/ Two people who stopped was family with them and they both called the owner, yet no one came out.
@hund I'm sorry to hear that. This is one reason I'm wanting to go with triple A again. It sucks being stranded.
@jordan31 I have insurance, I was hoping someone would stop and help me. Which two guys eventuelly did. :)
