Left work, got 2 minutes down the road and saw a lady without a back light. So i told her i could barely see her, she pointed at a single LED she had, and explained that she had bought a new light but didnt have a screwdriver or batteries.

I lent her my screwdriver and gave her my batteries! So to the lovely lady in southwark/blackfriars this afternoon you asked if there was anything you could do in return... how about a drink one evening?

    Did you not ask her out for a drink there and then?

    Doh!

    I disagree, Paddy is a real knight in shining armour for that!

    Oh and BTW, there's room for luurve in every season, not just the spring 8)

    A stirling effort indeed, but me thinks you should have got her number at the time!

    what bike was she riding??

    You could have asked her for a drink at the time, perhaps, but why ruin a selfless act of kindness by doing that?

    Hope that you'll see her again - she'll remember you!

    You should have asked her out for a drink before actually handing over the batteries... that way you could avoid wasting some decent batteries on her should she be married/frigid/lesbian.

    That's cold.

    Can you make that into some kind of equation?

    this is more fun.

    If damsel_in_distress is ("married", "single") do (flirt) else if damsel_in distress is ("lesbian") do ("request bring friend") :lol:

    SP, you are of course, a knight of the road, but I'm puzzled - nowhere in your post do you indicate that the D_in_D posts on BR, so why the invite?

    On the off-chance that the D_in_D does post / lurk on BR I'd like to point out that, despite temptation, I've not questioned why SP lusts after a 'woman who requires batteries' nor made any tasteless 'pump' jokes.

    Doing a nice thing for it's own rewards is good. :)
    If something good happens afterwards, that is even better but still the good deed is enough.

    i do believe in bike karma, if i was in trouble or needed help i would like to think someone would stop and offer to help me with whatever the problem with my bike was. If i see someone on the side of the road i always stop to help.

    It just so happens she was a hot lady this time, i would of said it to anyone and donated my batteries to anyone!

    I didnt see her today, although i was looking!
