This story is the perfect fucking example of the "Steve Jobs" mythos. The entire story is described as being about Steve Jobs, and how caring he is. And what was his entire contribution to the story? Trying to start the car, and then calling it a piece of shit when it wouldn't. Bravo Steve.

If you want to praise someone, praise his wife. She's the one who came out, gave the guy a beer, called someone to help fix it, invited him in to call AAA when they couldn't get it working. But is the guy talking about how wonder Steve Jobs's wife is? Nope.

Just like in most other areas of his life, other people do all the work, he takes all the credit.

Heh, aside from your final line it's exactly what I was thinking.
