I got stuck on side of road, at a sort of busy residential road today. Fortunately, I have my in-laws within 20 minutes away. I waited only about 5 minutes till a police officer stopped to make me move over to side of road a little more & make sure we were ok (help was on way). I had my 3 yr old daughter in back seat. He left.
Then about 5 minutes later a man in truck stopped and offered assistance. I told him my father-in-law was on his way. He says "I'm here. Doesn't hurt me." I say, "I don't know." He says, "yes or no?" Then I decided, fine. He changed out the tire and I gratefully thanked him. I think of myself as a cautious person.
Was it wrong to hesitate? I feel like it was rude of me to not accept his offer of assistance immediately.
