I was driving home in the middle of winter with probably 3 ft. of snow on the ground. Out of the corner of my eye, I see the color turquoise sticking out of the snow on someone's tree lawn next to their trash cans. I slam on my brakes, hop out of the car, and find this table (in two pieces) buried in the snow.
I couldn't get it in my car fast enough!! I knew I'd have no trouble getting the base in the car, but the tabletop was probably bigger than me and not to mention really heavy, oh and not to mention buried in the snow. There ain't no way I was leaving without though. So what's a poor girl like me to do... how about ask the man three doors down who's out shoveling his driveway (in 10 degree weather) if he wouldn't mind helping me.
I think he tried to avoid eye contact with me, but I just smiled and waved my arms a lot and asked for his help in the sweetest of sweet voices. Luckily he obliged (I mean he really had no choice) and helped me finagle the table top in my trunk. I thanked him profusely, but I'm not sure it registered. I think he was still trying to make sense of how he just got roped in to spending 5 minutes out in the freezing cold helping some random girl shove a huge piece of "trash" in her car.
