    help me with my bag


    I get confused sometimes when people say help me out.
    Old lady at the station:can you help me out (with my bags,implication).
    I do not see the need to help her out as compared to help her with those bags when you just need help with something so petty.Do we really need to add "out" even when the thing you need help with is not a trouble you want to get out of.

    It is not needed, but it is commonly said.
