considerate rudeness

with one comment

so i was riding in someone’s car one day and we were a little late to get to our destination.  we pull off the exit behind another car and the light was green.  whew! we might not be so late after all.  all of a sudden, the car in front of us brakes to a stop.  yeah, AT A GREEN LIGHT!  the driver rolls down his or her window and hands some change over to a homeless man standing at the corner.  the light then proceeds to turn yellow and red, stopping both cars from turning.

my reaction was rage at first.  i mean, we’re late.  this is a green light.  you don’t just stop at a green light ESPECIALLY when there’s someone behind you.  and then i thought, can i really get mad?  true, traffic laws might be on our side if we hit this car but is there a rule that says you can only give homeless people money when the light’s red?  besides, we weren’t following too close or anything so we wouldn’t have hit the car.  i jokingly said, “that’s just inconsiderate!!”

it made me think.  do we only give when it’s convenient?  like at a stop light?   or are we willing to go out of our way (and maybe in someone else’s way) to give?
