someone gets injured and is laying in the middle of the road and people drive past her yelling “what are you doing?!? get out of the street and get a job!”
This actually happened on an episode of 24 but it sadly still paints a pretty accurate picture of our culture today. The reason I say this is because whenever something abnormal is on the side or in the middle of the road, people usually don’t think to stop or get out and help. Okay it’s a little extreme… but I could see a lot of people doing it. Or whenever there’s a wreck on the highway and cars are all stopped and backed up, like, 5-10% of the population actually tries to swerve in and out of traffic to get ahead. I guess this usually applies to driving and not other instances because for whatever reason people act like huge assholes in the car but as soon as they get out it’s “oh may i help you?!”…
It’s usually a good thing to be alert as possible when driving and not have the tendency to speed around like you’re in a race…people, it’s not a race. Just being alert all the time is a pretty good idea. You never know when something crazy may happen so try to be ready.
I’m not trying to say everyone needs to help in every single situation, but you need to be prepared to at least slow down for any situation, in life.
