Do you think people do the right thing?

Even heroes know when to be scared.

I am going with something between 20-30%, especially here in America. Too many mean ass selfish people I have seen around here of late, more enfaces on the roadway. If we are talking about driving, I would say 5% do the right thing . I have avoided being a hood ornament all of this time by expecting them to do the wrong thing 100% of the time .

Can someone tell me what the right thing even is?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

You find a wallet with some cash....... what do you do ?


Lost dog with tags ......... what do you do ?


Cashier makes a $20 mistake in your favor ..... what do you do ?


Do you routinely break traffic laws ? seems small .... but still.


The "me-first / for *my* benefit" mentaility is pretty strong here these days.

It's not about what you do when people can see you..... it's about what
you do when you are alone and no one is watching except your conciense.

I can't add much to this that hasn't already been said. Spoil9 nailed most of what I was going to say. But I think I also see it as a generational gap.

My great-grandparents were really upset with me when I was a child, for picking up a $20 I found on the sidewalk. In their mind, the person that lost it would be retracing his steps and wouldn't find it if I picked it up. So I put the money back down and some bum picked it up before we got to the end of the block.

My grandparents were the kind of people that didn't take anything free. They had to *earn* it. Seriously, free sample day at the store would be trauma for them till I pointed out that they were earning it by shopping at the store. They would "pay for it eventually"

My parents, are the kind that would return cash if they were given too much change back.

My brother and sister...they throw cigarette butts and used napkins out the car window. And I'd keep a $20 if I found it, for sure. Though I admit to returning cash when I actually saw the person drop it, if I had no idea who's it was, it's mine now.

Downward spiral me thinks.

Side story: This has always stuck with me because it seemed to wrong to me. A friend of mine, who is now the face of Duncan Yo-yo's oddly enough, once told me "my Dad said the world is my ashtray"

I try to do the right thing. I will help an older person load groceries, I give to animal shelters, and I'm always willing to try and help our friends out. Sometimes I'm too nice and get taken advantage of, but I don't let others bad side change my outlook. I know everyone has a good side in them. Just call me little miss sunshine.

explain? I suppose if the good feeling from doing something right, or appreciation from the receiving party is considered selfish then you're correct

Please... People do the stupidest things.

Nearly got killed 3 times last Saturday in the span of 20 minutes. 2 people, at 2 different times, coming completely in the wrong side of the 2-lane road in a
*completely* blind turn. Also, the typical near-wreck -- some dumb ass looks right in my face and pulls out in front of me.

I'm sure there is intelligent life in the universe... It just ain't on this planet...
