It's a Sad, Sad, Sad, Sad World

ON my way to work this morning I got stuck behind a school bus. As I drove behind it we appoched a girl who started running in the direction of the bus stop (which was about 0.2 miles down the road). For a split second I thought about pulling over and giving her a lift to the bus which she would obviously miss. I rejected stopping since I didn't expect she would take the offer and I might expect a visit from the police later for trying to lure a young girl into my car.
When the bus finally got to the bus stop and picked up the kids, I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the girl still valiantly running for the bus. Perhaps she was hoping the bus would miss the light on the corner. She didn't stop until the bus turned the corner.

It's a f**ked up world when you can't help someone.

You would have gotten a visit from the police if you had stopped. Given the nature of the state you live in I would not be surprised if you found yourself on the sex offender list.

You did the right thing by not stopping. It's a shame that it prevented you from doing the right thing: helping our fellow man.

Glad to hear that it's not just me being cynical...though in many ways I would prefer it was just me being cynical.
