Over the weekend we saw some kids, college kids, with apparent dead battery. Another car had pulled up to help, so I figured the solution was at hand. But my spouse advised me to ask them if they needed help. They did. They had some idea of how to jump a car, and full marks to the driver of the dead car for carrying jumper cables, but they really needed someone who has done this before. Like me! So we all got together, got the dead car up and running in 5 minutes, and they were on their way. But I was channeling my dad the whole time.
