People were throwing bottles at Jay.
He did not mind. In fact, he was glad of it.

Jay = HAM?

People = strangers? People Jay knows? Did they have any malicious intent when throwing the bottles? Were they aware that he didn't mind them doing it? Did they mean to hit Jay with them? To have him catch the bottles?

Relevant what kind of bottles they were throwing at him? Are they normal bottles you'd use to put some sort of liquid in? Were they empty? Made of plastic? Glass (ouch)?

Was Jay glad becuase he was benefitting from this in some way? Were the people paying to throw the bottles at him?

Drat! I thought this would run a little longer.

During a traffic jam, Jay's radiator overheated. He pulled off onto the shoulder, and propped open the hood/bonnet. Passing motorists, seeing his problem, threw what plastic bottles of water that they had in his direction, so he was eventually enabled to continue on his way.
