YOU threatened the guy.
I am not the person trying to save my butt because of a mechanical breakdown.
and that is a HUGE IF
I were the one in that position,
once the guy made his case that he was never going to give it up no matter what but he also would not raise a hand to stop me
I would have taken it without the threats. They would not be needed
I am going to NEVER be that guy because my out plan does not require such things.
... You beg and cajole and even threaten, but he is adamant, even though he will do nothing with it, he refuses to help you to save you and yours...
Kinda silly, as I wouldn't threaten anyone. As I wouldn't take to being threatened in similar situation "kindly".
However, given as presented. Borrow it.
Again, silly. Because I wouldn't threaten. So I didn't.YOU threatened the guy.
