Took the wife to lunch at Subway over near the docks. As we are sitting in our car, parked – engine off – the driver of a taxi parked right next to us opens his door and slammed it into our car with enough force to rock us to the side. I get out and thankfully, because it’s a Saturn I think, there is no damage to the door panel and this guy is backing away from me pretty quick.
I blow it off and climb back in (The wife was on the phone so I was waiting for her) and I watch the taxi guy walk away. As he is moving I see something fall out of his pocket and recognize that it is money. So, I get out walk over and pick it up. It’s twenty bucks. The guy still hasn’t noticed he lost it and I could just walk away $20 richer and he would never know. He did slam the hell out of my car after all.
I hollered at him and when he turned around handed him the money he dropped.
That’s the difference between us and them. We do what we do because it really is the right thing. They do what they do to grab whatever they can while claiming it’s for the ‘greater good’.
