Saturday. Sister is returning home today. I missed her. Today is lunch with Mom and dinner for the troops.
There is a show on ABC called "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" It has a hidden camera and uses actors and actresses to act out situations to see how strangers would react to those situations. Maybe a mom is calling a daughter dumb or fat. Or maybe a waitress is treating someone with racial comments. I am always amazed at the strangers that stand up to the person doing the wrong thing. It really has become one of my favorite shows.
In honor of that show today we are doing a rip off of it and doing "What Would You DO".
What would you do if you bought some decorations, maybe Halloween or Christmas decorations, and when you got home, opened the box, there was a note asking for help. Would you do anything? If so, what?
I think I would call a reporter I know at the local newspaper.
What would you do if you were a security guard at a building and you discovered something out of order. You know if you bring it to someone's attention it could bring down the president and change the course of history? It also could put your life at risk. Would you do the right thing?
I would do the right thing. To protect myself I would shout it out to every reporter and every newspaper and every TV station hoping that if anything happened to me people would know why.
OK, you paid for valet parking at the local restaurant or the local shopping mall. You go back to your car and look on the receipt. Written on it is something insulting. "This guy is an ugly doofus." "This woman has a chest the size of the grand canyon." What would you do? Ignore and drive off? Confront the offenders?
I'd probably ignore it and drive home.
