:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

I was in town today and a guy was pulling slowly into the bike park on his motorbike. He had to suddenly pull to the left as a pedestrian decided to walk straight in front of him, and in doing so caught the left hand panier of his bike on one of the benches causing him to lose balance and go down with his bike on its right hand side..

As soon as I saw him going over I was legging it to where he was laying to make sure he was ok.. He got up, told me he was ok but couldnt get his BMW off the ground.

So I helped him pick it up and sort it out..

Other people just stood there watching and laughing at him :mad:

What the hell is wrong with people today that they wont help someone who is obviously in difficulty :mad:

As you can tell the whole thing made me a bit :mad:

They laughed at him? Like that was funny? I can tell you this - I have a bad temper and there wouldn't be much laughing after that scene. What a bunch of jerks. :sniper:

Loopy, I think you can go even further with this thread.

Recently a fellow blader was beaten up and mugged after a bar visit.
My questions: Why is there a recent increase in physical violence? Why are people crossing the thresh holds? Is is normal for our current society? Is it a sign of the economy/times?

I, personally, wasn't involved in any fights lately. Granted, I have been when I was in my early teens but not since then. I guess I am strong enough to turn and walk away without getting the feeling I have to fight.

Yep.. they did think it was funny!! They soon shut up though.. a look that could kill and a girl helping the bloke made them look well sheepish!!!!

I know what you mean.. more and more people seem to be getting like that now.. All a lot of people care about now is themselves, and they dont give a damn about anyone else..

A study from Standford University showed that if no one stops to help someone in need, no one stops. Once ONE person starts helping, others feel more inclined to jump in and help out. Glad that someone was YOU, Loopy!

Absolutely the best was to combat this attitude. 'Specially whatever motivated the other peeps to laugh @ your fellow rider.

Yeah people are quick to laugh and make fun until they are ones who need help and then it's wrong when the gesture is returned. But karma is a mutha...

It's like every man for himself these days. I shudder to think what the next generation is going to be like.

People like to egg on any and everybody. It seems folks believe when they divert attention away from themselves then they are save. Maybe it's just to cover up their immaturity.
Doesn't this show that some don't have a good sense of right and wrong? Wasn't this their parents job to relay this value?

its disgusting how people are these days. in heavy traffic i have had cager's try to knock me off just cause they dont want to be behind another vehicle. before anyone assumes i was lane splitting the gap i was trying to enter was about the size of a school bus. as soon as i signal to move over the girl who would have been behind me stomps on the gas to push me back in my lane, inherently almost causing me to drop my 929 having to jam on the brakes not to hit the car in front of me. needless to say the guy behind her saw what happened and stopped so i could get in. as soon as traffic opens i go to pass this girl and she wrenches the wheel at me. why, she may get home 10 second later gimme a break. i almost followed her to get some revenge but i figured best to move on...

people suck sometimes

i have even heard people say such terrible things after a fatal mc accident rider not at fault word for word

"well i guess he shouldnt be riding a motorcycle, its dangerous"

and "its his/her fault for riding a bike"

people just don't care anymore, its me me me all the time.


a few months ago my boss told me he got a call from someone complaining about my driving. I knew exactly who it was. The guy crossed into my lane twice almost hitting me, then cut me off and gave me a brake job. Then cut across 2 more lanes into the brake down lane and slowed to like 40mph (at that time of day you can travel in it and people usually fly there) and gets on his cell phone. no personal responsibility.

if anyone wants I can give plenty more stories of inconsiderate jerkoffs. all just from when I'm working nevermind any other time.

I think its not just the economic times which are very prevelant in all our lives no matter what the age, and I hope that I'm just outside the 'next generation' as I look at all the half wits and think why oh why cant they be more considerate and helpfull to thier fellow man, its definately in how people are brought up by thier parents as to thier actions during and later on in life.
As the saying has it "What's the world coming to.....".

Nice one Loopy we just need a few more million people like you in the world and we may start to get somewhere.:thumb:
