What would you do?

If you know the story below, you can post that you know the "answer."
However, please let others chime in before you give your answer.


It's a cold rainy night.
You are driving your Boxster, top down I hope, pass the bus stop and you see three poor souls waiting for a bus that who-knows-when-it-will-come.
You stop to see who they are.
- An elderly who obviously need an urgent medical attention.
- Your best friend. (What's he doing at a bus stop?)
- A boy/girl of your dream. (It was a girl in the story I heard but I am making it for both sexes.)

In a cold rainy night at a bus stop, what would you do?

That was good and I am an idiot.

I'd get my best friend to drive the elderly person to the hospital in my car and I'd wait at the bus stop with the girl of my dreams until our taxi arrived. Fortunately I bought the Porsche umbrella (the one that fits in the passenger side sill) on ebay for the ridiculously high price of $75 but I can now say that it was worth every penny.

I believe the film was set in Winnipeg but I haven't seen it.

Winnipeg has a wonderfully intact Exchange District, full of historical buildings from around the turn of the century. There are several streets where, were it not for the cars, parking meters, and street lights, you would not know that it that it is not 1890. The city has done an excellent job of preserving this area of the city. As a result, it tends to draw film crews like flies to poop and there is always some movie or other being filmed, blocking streets and generally disrupting life as we would prefer to have it. "Hollywood of the North", that's us.

Google "movies made in Winnipeg Manitoba" for a surprisingly long list of major films made here.

You've got to see the movie that I mentioned. It's pretty unique.
