Missing detail: OP lets idiot try to pump up his deflated tires.

Idiot asked for OP to give him some CO2 cartridges because his didn't work.

OP offered such help as the idiot asked for--help inflating the tire. idiot seemed not to realize that tires don't instantly self-seal.

The missing info is very important because ti shows the OP was willing to help, but only willing to help to a degree.

Like myself and Kedostopusta, OP was not about to go giving handouts to people who were not prepared to help themselves. But .... OP was willing to help. And tried to help ... . but OP was hopeless.
