Walk on by ..Or help
How many of you bros would walk pass somone in trouble?
The reason iam asking the question is not so long ago i was walking down the street when i saw a old lady laying on the path.
By the time i got to her at least 20 other people had just gone straight passed her.So i stopped to check on her and her heart had stopped so i gave her mouth to mouth and heart massage and keep her going untill the ambulance came.She did die later in hospital but at least i tried..2 month later her son found out where i lived and thanked me for my help..
So at the end of the day how many people would just go on by even if it is a blind man trying to cross the road or somones car had broke down...

I would and have stopped to help someone in trouble. Several years ago I was driving on a back street in town during a snowstorm at night. When I saw a body laying down in the snow. I stopped and found an elderly lady who was confused and didn't know where she was. She would not get in my car so I walked her to the nearest home. Luckly the people knew her and they called her daughter up on the phone and she came and got her. When the daughter came to pick up her mother she thanked me. That made me feel really good about myself.

Have to help, just my basic instinct. I was born with a big heart and helping people has many times actually been to my detriment, especially financially.
I am used to being the guy who helps a friend out with $ 5, $ 10, or $ 20 and am used to not being paid back. One time I was almost ripped by someone I thought was a friend for $ 500. I did get paid back, but only after finally threatening a lawsuit.
But if I ever saw someone in a life-or-death situation, no way i could live with myself and turn my back on them. I am a Christian and I couldn't do that.

bexsome, you did the right thing bro!! I don't know how people can live with themselves not helping others. several years ago in the gym i was working out at i noticed an older guy had been pushing it really hard. he laid down in the floor and put his hands on his face. after a couple of minutes i went and asked if he was okay. nobody else even noticed or paid attention. even my neighbor i was lifting with said to not get involved. wtf??? the man said "no" he was not okay and to please find his wife. i just went to the front desk, didn't know who his wife was. never seen him again, but i guess he would have laid there to closing time since no one else would check on him. i don't understand people sometimes!!

I fucken helped this fucken DOCTOR to get his keys out of his BRAND NEW CAR!!! I used one of those freaken metal things (don't know what it's called), and about 10 minutes later, finally I got the freaken door open. I also at one point struck the metal thing on my cheek, which caused it to bleed, pretty bad too!
I was shocked when the fucker didn't even give me a few bucks in return!!! If he had called a tow truck, they would have charged him a good 20+ bucks!
He just thnx me and quickly leaves!!!
In general i'm just a nice guy, and I know that I helped the guy out and all, it's not the money that really matters at all, but the guy didn't even really act like he appreciated it, and the guy WAS A DOCTOR!!
I should have fucken asked for some steroids in return for the favor!!!

I always help. As Canes knows we cancers are cursed with a big . I think however most people would just walk by. Living in L.A. its really bad. Its like no one has any compassion for their fellow man. Everyone is out for what's in it for them. Really a sad thing. Me if I walked by I would feal unbearably guilty. Maybe its a weakness but I do care.

Yes, and most of the time we get screwed, right Ron? But we also know we did the right thing in the long run, and I guess when it is all well and told, we (Cancerians) can rest our heads at night.
Tennis I was actually thinkin the same thing. I stop because I would want someone to stop for me (not like anyone would).
