Things are sketchy in my town. Teenagers are creating such an upheaval, you really never know what to expect. Best to keep your eyes open, just in case.
I was in a convenience store, and getting ready to exit. A suspicious looking teenager was getting ready to enter. We both approached the door – at the same time.
“Oh, boy,” I thought to myself. “This could be trouble.”
Before I had a chance to reach for the door handle, the suspicious looking teenager grabbed it - first.
He opened the door for me.
“Okay,” I thought. “What does this mean? Is he going to shoot me?”
Not completely out of the question, nowadays.
I carefully walked through the door, not sure what would happen next. You just never know around here.
“Thank you,” I said in a near whisper. Better to be polite, you can’t be too careful.
Then, that boy said something that completely caught me off-guard.
“You’re welcome, Ma’am,” he said, as I passed.
This gave me food for thought.
Here’s your hypothetical question. There is no wrong answer:
You’re driving down a long road, going 45-55 mph. There is a man coming towards you on a bicycle, waving his arms and showing an expression of “Don’t Go There!” Meaning, he is trying to warn you not to continue down that road.
- Stop and turn around.
- Slow down and proceed with caution.
- Keep going at 45-55 mph.
Please think about this and answer below.
