I agree Soul Sista,
A simple request for assistance followed by a "please".
What do they get in response?....A sarcastic reply.
Happens much to often on this list.
Like I said...."Welcome to the club Tom & Tori,....they don't mean to be rude, it's not their 
fault, they can't help it, it's the nature of the beast".
At least the nature of some of the beasts.

Personally, I didn't see a single thing wrong with this request by these 
2 folks. They asked kindly, made a REQUEST, not a demand, said "please" 
and "thank you"...what more do ya want, folks? I didn't see any sense of 
entitlement or anything here, unless someone was attempting to read 
between the lines.....just a simple request for a ride, after other 
options had been exhausted first.

Let's play nice folks!! Sheesh!!
Sounds like some folks need to go take a hike.........
