share your world Q & A

Q: Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

A: Nope.

Q: Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

A: Was in an “accordian” accident. Whole line of cars hit the one in front of them. I was first in the line. I braked when the car in front of me braked and I stopped in time, but the car behind me didn’t stop in time, nor did six or seven behind him. Foggy dusk with a slick road. I pulled over three lanes to the shoulder and so did the fellow behind me. All the rest pulled off on the median. The two of us exchanged info and went on our way. Later as I was officiating at a board meeting, a highway patrolman showed up to inform me I should not have left. He took my information but didn’t cite me. The board looked on.

Q: Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?

A: As a lifelong jogger, I’ve found all sorts of things, including wallets with money in them, phones in the gutter, and legal documents in envelopes. Nothing beats returning something lost and refusing any reward. Great karma.

Q: What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret! 

A: Nothing recently, but yes, when there was a long line and the item was trivial, into my pocket it occasionally went. 😦

  1. Thank you for participating in Share Your World! In regard to the accident, it seems like you did the sensible thing and you did leave your info with the driver who hit you. But they say ‘never leave the scene’. Sometimes that’s really foolish, especially if it’s minor and the people involved can agree on terms. The cops are over-worked too and sometimes don’t show up for a long time. Can get frustrating! Good karma ‘spends’ the best, I tend to think. 🙂 Thanks again for sharing! 😀
