I thank you for that side of the story but I feel our situations are vastly different. It wasn't until we got to the meeting spot we were told the car wouldn't start, she didn't call him before hand and ask for help. It was rainy, windy and cold, she was going to walk to the gas station 6 blocks away. I was the one who told him to offer her a ride as now the kids were getting upset. I have been in her situation where my van wouldn't start, it sucks. It wasn't about getting one over on her, it was about helping another human being and the mother of my step kids.

Unfortunately she was not grateful and next time we will have a different approach, even if that means bringing the kids back with us until she is able to find appropriate transportation.
