I tried to help. Really. I did.
While playing in a fantastic oak tree at an intersection where one country road diverges, three work trucks pulled up. Two workers crawled out of the cab of the first truck, grabbed their shovels and loaded into the second truck, consolidating the ridership and leaving the third truck behind.
Alas, in the parked truck, they left the headlights on.
I tried to turn off the headlights, but the truck was locked solidly.
A few minutes
It's a bummer to return to a vehicle with a dead battery, and ever so simple to just turn the lights off for someone - if they leave the doors unlocked.
Unfortunately, no, because I couldn't achieve my goal!
There was a time not so very long ago when people left not only their car doors unlocked, but their windows wide open. I've turned off COUNTLESS sets of headlights in my day. But our fear of having our things stolen from our vehicles, or the vehicles themselves taken, has made this simple effort to help a relic.
