This show aired last Friday on ABC called “What Would You Do?” I actually didn’t get the opportunity to watch it at the time but the link was sent to me and I just viewed it. I have to say, I was surprised by the behavior. Basically, the show set up different scenarios that test the moral and ethical fiber of people. Would you blow into a breathalyzer for someone in order to allow the person to drive– even when it’s clear they are drunk? Another one that shocked the pure poop out of me is the scenario where pilots are in a bar getting drunk before a flight! If you didn’t catch this last Friday– here are the links: Pilots Drinking and Full episode of What Would You Do?
I would never claim to be a saint, but sometimes you’ve got to step in especially with those ‘drunk’ scenes. It’s funny, there was a time when there was no law to force us to buckle up when driving. I remember people being very upset that a law was sweeping through the nation back then. Our reasons for this initial frustration was because it wrinkled our clothes never thinking for a moment that seat belts actual can save your life. This show pointed out (to me) that we certainly respond differently when we are within a group versus making these individual decisions to stop a potential disaster. I can honestly say that in each scenario I simply wouldn’t hesitate to intervene. So what would you do?
