Good deed for the day

I parked my car next to the recycling bins in Tonbridge and an old chap walked over and asked for some help.
His car battery was flat and needed a jump start. I wasn't busy so offered to help. Only problem was we didn't really know what we were doing... A few sparks later and a passer by offered to help us. He switched them round, I revved my car, he turned his key, his car started.
It's the second time I've offered to help start a car. I remember about 15 years ago I was walking to the Knights Lodge with Shaheen and a group of women were trying to jump start one of thier cars.  

They asked for our help and we thought.  How hard can it be?  It was.  We produced more sparks.  Oops.
