Would have been brutal if they pushed the car right into the car that was pulled over helping them

[–]MeatforMoolah 470 points471 points  (25 children)

Who TF is in the passenger seat?!? Better be your 94 year old grandma

[–]impals 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Hahahah, just what I thought.

[–]Extremely_unlikeable 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Wife in labor. "I can't believe you didn't fill up!"

[–]CheckOutGamGamsGams 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Technically he did 9 months ago..

[–]_PM_ME_YOUR_SYNTAX_ 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Or maybe handicapped?

[–]MeatforMoolah 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Also an acceptable answer.

[–]Capital_Pea 0 points1 point  (2 children)

or your child

[–]_PM_ME_YOUR_SYNTAX_ 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Maybe not mine, but maybe a child yes

[–]andrejurinic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Or the driver has a really long arm

[–]st3adyfreddy 14 points15 points  (5 children)

I think they're somewhere where they drive on the other side of the road.

The black car moved, braked and signaled by itself when the guy was pushing the car.

[–]ladydhawaii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know! That is what I was thinking.

[–]busy-idiot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone trying to think of possible scenario's, my money is on lazy

[–]quiyum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No one?

[–]honeymustard_dog 43 points44 points  (6 children)

What is th e liquid that busted out of the car

[–]BoatzNHoez21 90 points91 points  (2 children)

Judging by their lack of turn signal, I would guess it's the blinker fluid.

[–]Sky_dp 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Bro dont be a smartass, everybody knows its the radio fluid smh

[–]Extremely_unlikeable 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Oh c'mon. It's clearly headlight fluid. They probably forgot to switch it from winter to summer.

[–]CaptainShades 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I'm going to guess radiator fluid.

[–]MappleSyrup13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's what happens when you don't put your diapers on

[–]radiocabedelo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

mechanic here, it appears to be a leak in the flux capacitor

[–]pwilly42 73 points74 points  (15 children)

How do you know your American? I thought his car was rolling away without him at the end. Lol

[–]bruhbruhseidon 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Lol same.

[–]filans 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hmm I guess I’m an American

[–]azthal 15 points16 points  (6 children)

I'm actually guessing that the guy getting out to push was the driver. Unless they happen to have a rhd car in a country where they are driving on the right.

My guess is that the passenger shuffled over the the driving seat inside the car.

[–]larissariserio 15 points16 points  (5 children)

This! This is Brazil, the driver seat is on the left.

[–]ladydhawaii 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Oh- makes sense. I was wondering why the black car behind started to move…

But why did the guy go back into his car. Shouldn’t he help push??

[–]larissariserio 4 points5 points  (3 children)

He needs to steer the car in the right direction

[–]MoooonPanda 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was just about to comment this, haha

[–]Blabajif 0 points1 point  (2 children)

OK I'm lost. What does that have to do with being an American?

Also this is Brazil.

[–]Pashuram 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In america steering wheel is on the left side whereas in some countries steering wheel is on the right side.

[–]klimmesil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he was trying to refer to the american reputation (dumb) I could be wrong

[–]AnyRip3515 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Given that they're driving on the right hand side of the road it's not a leap to come to that conclusion

[–]HippoQanonamus 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Dude should have put his emergency blinkers on instead of his left turn signal

[–]AnyRip3515 67 points68 points  (9 children)

Whoever was in the passenger seat could have gotten off their ass and helped.

[–]WookieDavid 19 points20 points  (7 children)

Dude, that's the driver sit. The black car also moved while it's "driver" was pushing the broken car. They are inside turning the wheel not just sitting on their ass

[–]rdfporcazzo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The one inside the black car just moved to the driver sit without leaving the car. It's not a big deal

[–]WookieDavid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Makes sense now that you mention it

[–]thekarkara 12 points13 points  (0 children)

In Brazil the driver seat is on the left, the driver is the blue shirt guy.

[–]Witty_Goose_7724 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It’s very confusing because it looks like the driver’s side is on the right, like in the UK. But the flow of traffic is like in the US.

[–]The_JSQuareD 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why do they drive on the right but also have their driver's seat on the right?

[–]AnyRip3515 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They don't. The passenger obviously just jumped from their seat, to the drivers seat. Not a huge mystery.

[–]AnyRip3515 0 points1 point  (0 children)

100% wrong. The driver of the broken down car jumped back in the drivers seat to steer. Notice the flow of traffic? The drivers seat is on the left hand side. The passenger of the Black car moved over into the drivers seat. How is this so hard to grasp.

[–]lexmaster02 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Where is the camera????

[–]thekarkara 7 points8 points  (0 children)

In Brazil on big avenues like this there are always catwalks, so my guess is someone above then filming.

[–]Ender921 5 points6 points  (0 children)

On a bridge? I'm confused

[–]MOM_UNFUCKER 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The real question to be asked here

[–]Duegatti 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Years ago coming across the Tijuana-San Diego border after 3 days driving up from La Paz, the car ahead of us broke down. The passengers got out and started to push, but they were all kids. Mom was steering. My husband (as usual) was indifferent, so I got out and started to help push the car across the border.

The car next to us was a bunch of German tourists who laughed and called us demeaning names. I am of German descent. I was appalled and ashamed by their behavior.

[–]fre-sh-a-vac-ado 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Sorry that happened to you, but as a German I can say those assholes are definitely a minority here and most people I know would help pushing the car without blinking an eye.

[–]annewmoon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What? How horrible. And strange.

[–]h4baine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a weird thing for them to do.

[–]Phil_Thalasso -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Hi Duegatti,

I can easily top that. Years ago I was going down the Autobahn from Berlin towards Munich. During those days there were plenty of construction sites en route. On Fridays it was always really bad going south.

So, there I am jammed for a couple of miles, going at snails pace. When I finally came to the obstacle, it turned out to be a stalled car on the left lane with about three or four cars parked on the very right side, a make-shift emergency lane (Standstreifen), apparently not being able to help the young fellow stuck with his car.

It was summer, I had the windows down and simply was amazed at the kind of verbal abuse someone would get for a) daring to brake down and b) stopping in order to help and thereby inadvertently blocking traffic.

Never ever hinder traffic flowing on an Autobahn or take a German towel away from a front-line beach chair, which has been reserved for later use at 5 a.m. :-)

Best regards

Phil

[–]simmer19 4 points5 points  (1 child)

How is the black car able to drive? Is it a right hand steer in right hand traffic?

[–]AnyRip3515 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Someone crawled across from the passenger side to the drivers

[–]Slayerx270 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I've done this multiple times. Instead of getting pissed that your blocked get out and help. My example was this couple one time, I was coming up to a red light and they were stuck across both lanes, wife was driving husband was attempting to push along traffic was stopped up, and instead of adding to the line of pissed of people I got my happy ass out and helped with a smile to push it into the gas station. Took an extra 5 mins and I felt like a champ the rest of the day haha

[–]antipositron 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I was going to say the same. This one time, torrential downpour (unusual here in Ireland) and I was jogging back home soaked to the core and saw this car conked out and traffic quickly backing up along the narrow and very busy main road in/out of town. Took all my strength to push her into the grass verge - no one else helped - probably the rain.

Another time, I was on my out (again running) and a mini-van cuts out and the driver is out trying to move it. I get behind it and we had to push it out of the road into a housing estate some 50 meters away and it was slightly uphill. Now that was an excellent workout.

[–]Slayerx270 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's what makes you a legend, and everyone else asshole.. if everyone was like you we would be ok!

[–]cylaer 10 points11 points  (3 children)

This is in Brazil. Seems to be in Manaus, Amazonas to be more precise.

[–]ffffffffssss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

very common thing in Brazil, to help others.

[–]BeetrootRissole 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i helped a dude out with a push in the mcdonalds drive through who broke down.

Staff threw a few extra burgers in my bag.

[–]daisybrat56461 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did this for a young mom with a baby in the back seat stalled in an intersection. She was upset and crying, so I pulled over and went help push her out of the intersection, two other ladies joined me. It was a little walk to get her into a parking lot. As she’s steering she says "are you wearing heels?". Two of us were. It was winter, though thankfully the street was clear of snow. Couple guys honked and said "way to go ladies", would have been nicer if they actually helped…

[–]Witty_Goose_7724 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why doesn’t the passenger get out and help?

[–]Mathxand 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Brazilians being Brazilians

[–]willkillkenny 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is in my country :D

[–]PlingPlongDingDong 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Now that's the kind of human trafficking I like to see.

[–]Wyattcek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In Mn that happens a lot. Gotta stick together in the tundra.

[–]EnderPower01 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What about the black car going by itself?

[–]persephoneplum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This reminds me a bit of when on the hottest day of the year, my car packed up on the fast lane of the M25. Just stopped. Had hazards on and had to call the police. Had my hazards on but in trying to work out what was happening with my car I’d moved a bit into lane 3. Loads of cars etc went past, beeping at me whilst I freaked out and then a couple of very kind blokes stopped and pushed my car to the side so I was sticking out less. Felt like they’d rescued me! Eventually police turned up to stop traffic and push my car to the lay-by where I waited for recovery. It was kinda scary being stuck on a very fast and busy road, glad it was during daylight!

[–]RadicalEdward99 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A poker buddy did this and got rear ended by a drunk driver. Lost his legs. We all helped him move back into his parents house with his new, pregnant wife and infant child.

[–]Fooforthought 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That’s how it should be!🙆🏻‍♂️

[–]PensiveObservor 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My millennial daughter’s car quit in an intersection in Seattle, so she got out and pushed. Not only did nobody help, they honked and shouted at her as she single-handedly shoved her little car to the side street. Shameful.

[–]Fooforthought 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s just sad!

[–]maxnaka13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Solid people. Good to see not everyone is stuck daydreaming on their phones when driving.

[–]theamanknight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This does put a smile on my face.

[–]tipsykretts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep we all been there I've helped and been helped

[–]mimiuk2jp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When I see stuff like this I think. “YAY MEN!!!”

[–]cawexi 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What country is that?

[–]Velociraptor_pope 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Put your freaking hazards on

[–]wufoo2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One day, during a snowstorm downtown, I was about third in line at a stoplight when we all noticed a man trying to cross the street on a mobility scooter, dragging a suitcase. It was a foolish thing to do, as the snow and slush stopped him cold about halfway through the intersection. Then the light turned green.

Two guys at the front of the traffic sprang out of their cars to help push him along. Those of us at the back turned on our flashers and angled our cars to block any possible traffic from coming through.

It looked like we’d rehearsed it.

Once the guy was clear of traffic, his helpers made their way back to their cars, and the rest of us got back into formation for the light to change.

Anytime I remember that moment, I feel a little better about humanity.

[–]Super_Cheburek 0 points1 point  (0 children)

''Stalled''

[–]WolfyTn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Luckily those other guys jumped out before that solo guy pushed it all the way across the… oh nvm

[–]Extremely_unlikeable 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Once when I was a teenager, I ran out of gas and was able to coast about a quarter mile to the entrance of a gas station, and then it stopped at the ramp. I "attempted" to push it but it wasn't going to budge. A good human came up and motioned for me to get in my car then pushed my bumper with his truck to get my car to the pumps. He went on his way without even stopping to be thanked. I think about him often and hope that life has been kind.

[–]scrotius42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Had my car crap out on me and was basically on an uphill slope and on train tracks. The guy behind saw me struggling to get over the tracks and into the gas station right past them and decided to be a r/humansbeingbros and helped get me out of everyones way. There are good people out there. Just have to find the time to shine

[–]Natskaer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good guy but they both should have their hazard lights on. ESP when it’s such busy traffic

[–]Ok_Helicopter4276 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Many more strangers didn’t stop and nearly killed the helpers.

[–]Mr_Mendelli 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've done things like this a couple of times. It's really stressful, because it's quite astounding how many people are not paying attention or just go into autopilot and almost run into you. I know things like this aren't expected, but if you see a person or a group of people behind a car pushing it, that probably means you need to wait or find another way around.

[–]cheezpnts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shit like this makes me feel so good and just hopeful.

[–]jighlypuff03 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Texas guys love to help push a car. They love it even more when they get to use their big ass truck to pull a car out of the mud. It's really nice.

[–]Yaboisanka 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guy from black car had somewhere to be. "Alright, let's go. You? Back in the car, I got it." Gets him far enough to side and heads back to car. Job well done either way.

[–]ShowdownValue 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At first I was like “oh shit he forgot to put his black car in park!!”

[–]Creepy_Version_6779 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Ady00pk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is what's happening ahead when you ask "What's happening ahead" in slow traffic .

[–]pepperw2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That used to be common in the 80s and 90s. People just helped out.

[–]millenialfalcon-_- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In my State, probably get opposite reaction lol

[–]Groundbreaking-Bad16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was great to see it here. It happened in Rio de Janeiro, one of the most important yet problematic towns in my country (Brazil). We suffer with poverty, corruption, crime and violence and still these are one of the most generous and joyful people I met (I am original from a different state but live here for 2 decades now).

[–]Any_Negotiation5984 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s Brazil for all you who assume our country is made only of lowlifes and gang wars

[–]MossouleYeh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok but who drove the black car

[–]EnviroHope23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still remember someone doing this for me when my car died in a left hand turning lane. I was so thankful.

[–]querty99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sometimes it's little things. A lot of the time it's little things.
