These poor guys. My car had broken down on the side of the road and they pulled over to help me. They popped their trunk to get out their dad's tool box (which I swiped this photo out of) to help me replace a spark plug that had popped out of the engine block, but amazingly enough had stayed stuck into the spark plug wire. As they were grabbing the tools, I took a peak in the trunk and saw that they had just bought the brand new PlayStation 2 and a shit load of games. I wrenched on the car for a minute and it started right up. I thanked the guys and told them to hop in their car and I'd take care of putting the tools back, as it was the least I could do. I tossed the bag with the PlayStation and games into a bush and walked back up and thanked them again. I can't say for sure, but that might have been the saddest night those young nerds will even know.
