QUESTIONS:

Would (or do) you stop to help (presumably) stranded folks by the side of the road? This is a tricky one. On my own, also on the oldish side (in my 60’s and a female), I would not. Sorry, but too much happens to people when they stop to help. Now with that being said, my ex-husband would always stop and that included members of the top motorcycle gangs like the Pagans, etc. He was a motorcyclist and so that meant he had to stop even though he might have been slightly worried. They were always appreciative so it wasn’t a problem. Now one time we were on our motorcycle and he stopped for a motorcyclist. He couldn’t help except to go to the guy’s home or friends and tell them their friend was stranded. That guy had the nerve to tell him to leave me with his motorcycle and he would go with him to talk to them. Luckily my now ex-husband had enough sense to not leave me and the guy finally had to give us an address if he wanted help. We drove there and told them and then left. If they went to help him we never knew. Our part in that was done. The second situation was when I was with my daughter. She would insist on helping. Usually it was women and children thankfully, but still, they could just be a plant to get you to stop. I was very uncomfortable, but each time she was right and could get them help.

Do you think the world is less mannerly today than in past times OR are we just more touchy and manners are as they’ve always been? Oh yes, people don’t even look up from their phones and just expect you to open the door or whatever and forget a thank you. We are bringing up the most unmannerly people nowadays. They simply aren’t learning manners or to behave. I hate to see kids just running around doing whatever they want while mommy and daddy are on their phones. 

What happens if you’re scared half to death, TWICE? I guess you die a full death. Silly question.

If ALL the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit? In the atmosphere.

(There is a further question…the gratitude question, below the graphic.  Sorry folks!)

I agree with Melanie’s assessment in her answer. Today’s government is ruining our country. The world hated us before this recent batch, but now it is even worse. I won’t even read the news or watch it on tv anymore because I don’t want to know what other awful things they are up to now.

    Thanks Tessa for Sharing Your World! 🙂 I’m in your same boat, older woman, and I, too have read or heard of too many ugly stories about good Samaritans getting robbed, beaten or worst killed for their altruism. Perhaps you and your daughter have been blessed for your good deeds, but perhaps it’s off putting to have two people of any gender when thinking of doing something awful to somebody.

      I prefer to believe that they were good people and we weren’t in any danger. The one with the kids we couldn’t help them and they called Triple A, but they wouldn’t touch them either because they were basically involved in an accident and the police were soon on the scene called by Triple A. After making sure we had nothing to do with their situation they let us go. The kids didn’t want to call their parents as they went out of state and they were really young. Their parents were going to be furious. We felt sorry for them, but we couldn’t do anything for them.
