LJ gets a Rubicon unstuck

Not looking to start trouble or get flamed too much. But was at the beach today with the family. I was leaving when in the distance I see a jeep buried up to the diffs. And it turns out to be a rubicon with the kevlar mtz tires. Dude did not air out. Needless to say he has a car load of beefaloes in the back. After 10 mins. of telling him to air down he finally does and gives it one more shot. He floors it and goes straight down on the way to china. Its on the front bumper. I pull in front of him put a strap on him. Get back in my 2006 LJ 6SPD, Lower the a/c. put in 4wh low and 1st gear,let the clutch out I had minimal wheel spin, and pop out the rubicon comes. Best thing is he never said thanks. real tool.

What I get a kick out of is seeing the Mexican vendors driving all over the Mexican beaches on their beat up jalopies. 2wd, skinny bald street tires, but plenty of driving skill learned from driving on the sandy beaches. I never saw one get stuck.

So here's a guy in a 4x4 Rubicon with lockers and MT/Rs but he still manages to get stuck in the sand?

It's great that you were there to help him, but do you think that it's at all possible that you were showing some of the above attitude just a little when you did?

It's pretty obvious that there is attitude, or you wouldn't have felt the need to come here and brag about it by strutting your superior knowledge and driving skills while disrespecting his passengers, vehicle and driving skills.
So, he was a noob in a Rubi with some heavy people inside, how does that make you better than him or his passengers?

Absolutely the guy should have said thank you, but he may have been more concerned about getting his azz off of the beach onto solid ground than stopping to kiss your butt on the way by.

You get good karma for helping someone out, but it is quickly wiped away when you feel like you have to talk trash about the guy you helped just to make yourself feel more like a superhero because of it.

It would have been so much nicer to have read about how you'd helped someone learn a little on that day than about how you felt that you had humiliated him.

There you got your flame, happy now?

Kate-The "attitude" and the posting probably comes from the fact that the guy didn't even say thanks. I'm sure his initial intentions were to help the guy out.

Read the first sentence...he wasn't trying to start trouble.

Your response is no better than the way you interpreted his post.

Hey kate, just read your profile.....didn't mean to insult you or anyone else with a rubicon. Nor was I implying that my ride is any better or worse than others. It was just a true story told as it unfolded, and the bottom line was the dude could not even express a word of gratitude. or offer up some beefaloe..............

Heck, it really didn't have a thing to do with the Rubicon. It's just a Jeep. Worse than some, better than others. They all get stuck. I've had stock 4 bangers yank me out of mud holes, and was lucky enough to be able to return the favor another day.

I agree with you about the guy's ingratitude. He should have taken a moment to shake your hand and tell you thanks for saving his butt. I might have gotten my nose a little bent over that too. Then I remembered way back to the first time someone told ME to let the air out of my perfectly good tires and go wander around on big rocks with them like that. I thought they were out of their ever loving mind! It's a learning process.

I've actually been thinking a lot about this post for the last couple of days and trying to figure out how to word a response to let you know the main reason why I went off on you and have been really tempted to raise the roof over some of the other posts too. Someone above noted that I have a bit of an attitude. Well, yes, sometimes I definitely do and it makes it hard to hold my tongue more often than not.

It's the beefalo remarks.
That's what yanked a knot in my tail more than anything.

Before I go on. I'm going to tell ya'll that I'm a 53 year old mom/gramma Jeep gal, and I'm a fat woman.
See for yourself.

I'm also Irish and come from a long line of people who are built just like me. Part of it is genetic, the other part I take complete responsibility for. However, if ANYONE were to call me a beefalo to my face, they'd be picking themselves up off of the ground. It's just rude.

I have had people say things to me, hurtful things like the remarks above. These people didn't know me. Don't know my life history, medical crap or my lifestyle. I'm telling all of you right now, that things like this can cut a person to their soul. It's being hurtful, for no other reason than just meanness. It isn't funny.

It's appears to me that many of the remarks made here are from those who are fairly young and without a lot of real life experience.

In that light I can try to understand the mean spirited humor in it because the posters have not yet had a chance to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. It's a sign of immaturity that time will eventually change. As time passes some of you will get fat, some go bald, all will eventually show your age and not even be able to "get it up". You may be young, fit and what you consider to be beautiful right now but it won't last forever. However, the ugliness of a mean spirit shows right from the get-go. Fat and ugly is only skin deep. Meaness goes clear to the soul.

All I can say to all of you who had a good time poking fun at the fatties is to next time, stop and think about how you would feel if the table were turned. What if it were your mom or your sister? Maybe your grandma or grandaddy? How would you feel then?

Stop and put yourselves in another person's place. Show some respect, common decency and compassion for others no matter who or what they are. Kindness reaps it's own rewards, you never know, the best friend you might ever have might be the fat guy.

OK, lecture over, mom's going back to finish her coffee.
