  • Yeah, lots of times. The last time was when we were trying to move my non-running van into the garage so it wouldn't get towed. First we had to push it around the corner into the alley. I steered, hubby pushed with our truck. Have you ever tried to turn a vehicle with no power steering...ugh.
    Then once we were at the garage I got out and pushed and my dad steered.
    Did I mention it was pouring outside. The whole thing was oddly hilarious.
    There was also this one time I was out with a friend, dropping another co-worker off at home in the middle of winter and we couldn't get back up the hill because of ice. We tried to push the van but it was stuck. I ended up watching her kids on the side of the road, the wrecker almost got stuck but we finally got the van out and it didn't crash into the creek at the bottom of the hill. It was a long night.

  • Yes, once I saw a women trying to push a car in the parking lot of Wachovia because it had cut off, so I pulled over to help. Finally a guy stopped to help but it took unusually long! I was beginning to wonder if there were any gentlemen left in the world.

  • ok I'm posting this as anonymously because I don't want anyone to know how stupid I was. lol well, funny story, I have a car that the steering went out, but it moved just fine and I went to move the car back a little so I could park another car in front of it and instead of doing the smart thing of putting the car in reverse and letting it move back on it's own, I sat there and tried to push the dang thing by hand!!!! So yeah, it was a total duh moment for me.
