    The young guy doesnt get asked.
    Back when I was young, that was not true. I also have needed help and had riders go by me without saying anything nor even looking at me.

    I once did ask two young women if they needed help (Central PA near Penn State) and the one say yes but then her friend started screaming about how just because they were women they did not need help. So I left.

Utter bullshit. And yet it happens over and over and over. And it really needs to stop. As I said, earn your Good Samaritan merit badge somewhere else.
    Bob, if you find the kindness of strangers so unbearable, I think you should buy yourself some rollers and stay indoors. You're starting to sound beyond grouchy. :-/
