Reading through this thread, a great one as usual!
Now, onto the seriousness of the topic. I would intervene if possible, after careful consideration.
Once, I without thought jumped into a situation to defend someone getting beat in a drive thru. After the fact, I realize I should not have, I had
children in the car. So, with that said, think first, then defend.
The most memorable visit I had to a local bakery...I was in a hurry, working, hungry and wanted a sandwich. There was a homeless man that had been in
the center for weeks, maybe months. I had given him money, and water. But after seeing him over and over, well I started avoiding him. On the day that
I was in a hurry, I saw him headed straight for me. He was a tall man, very tall and large boned. He scared me, really...but he walked right up to me,
looked me square in the eyes and said I am hungry. So, I said, "O.K. I'll buy you a sandwich. He walked right in with me, smelling like he did not
belong in there. I took one look at the gals inside and they practically jumped over the counter. He looked at them and said, "I am hungry". They
offered him a free sandwich, which was egg salad but was in a marked down pile on the counter. He walked over to the refridgerated counter, and picked
out a big turkey sandwich.
I then told the gals, "I am buying him a sandwich". They looked at me like I was crazy...
