Went for a drive today down to Rosebud. Melbourne people will know where it is. First of all I got pulled over by a Vic Police officer on a motorbike on the Nepean Highway. Before he could come to me, his bike fell over. He couldn't pick it up. I got out, helped him pick it up. He had pulled me over for not having a front number plate, which I showed him I had a new one on order. I helped him, he was in trouble with the bike on the ground. How can you just walk away.

Then when we were in Rosebud, we went to the beach. We had some fish and chips, fed the seagulls, and when we were packing up to leave, another couple were doing the same, and left a couple minutes before us. Their young son had left his new looking TONKA truck that he was playing with on the ground. We stayed there for 20 minutes to see if they would come back for the truck, as their son would have been shattered. Finally just as we thought they were not coming back, they did, and the mum was almost in tears that we had stayed to give the truck back. Her son was hysterical.

Yeah I know there is a difference between a cop on duty and a two year old kid. But what does the world owe me? I am not out to be a negative person or rape anyone for what they have be it material goods or just a good feeling. If you cant do anything good for anyone, then how can you look at yourself? Let people in on the road when they want to change lanes, be patient when in a parking lot, wait your turn when in line, just relax.

Exactly right Peter. I take the same approach driving to/from work, and make it an enjoyable experience, rather than an aggro grind.

Cheers,

Mick

The cop didn't fine me, I don't think he could have anyway, as I had a new numberplate on order, and had the paperwork in the glovebox. I still had the back plate on. It was just something that stood out, for a reason to pull me over. He thanked me, and I

Good on you Peter.

I remember some wise words about people in general. If they're angry, don't become a vessel for them to vent their anger on. For example, if someone cuts you off, it's cause they're a s*** driver or an asshole...don't then present yo

If you could see the little kids eyes dry up when he stopped crying, when he got his TONKA truck back, it was all worth it.

Too true.
It annoys the s**t out of me when you let someone into traffic or something and they dont give a little wave.. Just common courtesy stuff. But i have the philosophy that if someone is a ****er, its their problem; not mine. Theyre the one who h
