    Real Truth my brother: “EMPATHY actually makes the world a better place.”

    Too many time I’ve fought just because I thought it was required as a man.

    But it’s better to be true to ourself. Be good, do right!

    Always appreciate your insights (and humor). Hope you and family have a fantastic weekend as well, Trav!

    Trav, thanks for sharing this. It’s always good to be reminded the importance of placing personal values over the simple ability to hand out punishment.
    One consideration… I don’t think we can really control our emotions (I’ve seen plenty of adults throw tantrums as intense as any of my kids) but we can always choose to control our actions in response to them.
    This guy is pissed, which was not a choice. He chooses actions, however, that express his values and anger in a constructive way rather than a destructive one.

    I don’t think emotions are a choice, at least not the initial response, but how you handle them is. The nice guy in the shop was angry too, but he chose to calm himself down and do something different. In the same situation I hope I wouldn’t have assaulted the guy on camera, but definjtely would have let him make his own way to work and taken the bike.

    Trav,
    Thanks for sharing this. It is nice to know there are a few good people left in the world. I still don’t trust the “borrowee” – he never apologized or thanked the guy that I noticed. If I were to do a deal with the guy, I would want him to prove his identity and I would give him a definite time limit. Still, the bike owner is a guy I’d have a beer with any day.
