I got a chuckle out of the pic for this story. Kudos to the 6 good samaritans who got the taxi moving again, however the pic only shows 1 "worker".....the rest must be "foremen" :biggrin:

He probably was dug out a lot sooner than a tow truck arriving.

Are you kidding me? Not there, didn't help but you have to bash the good Samaritans because they didn't push hard enough for your liking?
Waste not

Shame really to find fault. I have helped push out in footwear that makes it hard to get traction so does take a little longer. I would imagine not everyone/anyone were wearing snow cleats.

A long wait for a tow truck would have not made for a good headline.

The number of times I have seen taxi's speed in school zones I would be more inclined to push one into a ditch. :biggrin:
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

If a stuck vehicle is not blocking me, and the occupants not in peril, I leave them.

One less shmo on the road with me !

6 able bodied men/women could have just picked it up and set it back down clear.
Oh, sorry. A Prius, them batteries weigh a tonne !
