Caused me more problems than it was worth?

A few days ago, I was walking home at 11pm having been to the 24hr supermarket. It was a Friday and things were a bit rowdy, although this is a small English village. From about 100 yards away I could see something, or someone, lying in the street and as I got closer I realised it was a person. In fact, it was a young woman, I don't know maybe 19, 20, 21, completely drunk. I put my shopping down and we sat against a wall, talking for one or two moments. She was crying, her breasts were hanging out, her shoes were in the road, and I didn't know what was going on. Eventually, I helped her to get dressed - yep, I put her bra back on - fetched her shoes, made her look a little respectable and called a taxi for her. I didn't know - and didn't ask - where she was going to go, but I didn't want her getting in a taxi with everything exposed. I was not the Good Samaritan, but I felt pleased that I had helped her on her journey. I gave her some money for the taxi. When I arrived home - 2 mins away from all this - I told my girlfriend, and she went bananas. She is not really speaking to me even now. 'Was she nice?' 'How old was she?' .....and so it went on hour after hour. The truth is that I did have to put her breasts back in her bra, because I knew the taxi was on its way. How? Because I rang the taxi company. I didn't feel her breasts, I just put them back. For God's sake. The girl was out of the game, upset, and I wanted her at her home ASAP - but I did not dare ask her address. That was her job to tell the driver where she lived - I had done all I could. The problem is that I would probably do the same again. Should I have just left her (that would go against the grain), or what?

You done a good thing. Tell your girlfriend she needs to trust you more, ask her how she would feel if that was her in the street? Would she want someone to just leave her?

How could you question what you did for that unfortunate woman ... even if your girlfriend is questioning your motives? It was the most natural and humane thing to do. Feel proud and glad that fate put you in a position to render assistance to this person. Just ignore your girlfriend and her insecurities, as long as... More
