I have. Twice now.
The first time was years ago - my friend and I were driving somewhere and it was raining. Well, when I say raining, I mean it was as if someone had put an ocean in a bag in the sky, and ripped open the bag. It was a deluge of Noah's Ark proportions. And we saw this woman, on her own, walking in it. Poor thing. So we stopped to offer her a lift. And she said yes, the silly cow. Two men, in a car, and she gets in?? Was she mad? Obviously, because you didn't hear about the court case... I mean, because I'm nice, we took her to where she was going and that was that.
The second time was this morning on the way to work. I was just pulling off the motorway I sometimes use to get to work, and I saw a biker man stood there with his thumb out and his bike on the side of the road. "What's up fella?" says I, as I pulled in next to him. Turns out he had run out of petrol, and he was trying to get to South Harrow for his first day in a new job. He had come from Camden and hadn't put enough petrol in the bike. "So where do you want to be dropped?" asks out valiant samaritan. He said anywhere with a petrol station, or a cab office, or somewhere nearer civilization (there is nothing near this particular slip road). So I told him to get in and I dropped him to the cab office just round the corner. (Actually, it was about 10 minutes away, because I couldn't remember where the nearest cab office was so I took him to one I definitely knew the location of).
The reason I stopped was because he was a biker. I wouldn't have just picked a random bloke up off the side of the road, but for those who don't know, I rode a bike for around ten years myself, and still have that attitude of bikers sticking together.
So anyway - hopefully he'll get to work in a cab OK and won't be fired on his first day. Good deed of the day done.
Soundtrack of the day: Nothing yet - it was a bad day on Friday of screaming and shouting in the office because none of the bosses were in, and I was getting very fcuking angry with some of my co-'workers' (ha). So today, I'm gonna wait and see what music I will need to drown out the noise. I mean, will Nick Drake be enough, or do I have to pump up the Disturbed and Metallica?
Update: Soundtrack of the day: "West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum" by Kasabian (yes, the new one)... fcuk me does it rock.
