Yesterday I was driving on a somewhat busy side street. By somewhat I mean there are no lines on the road, but I would never let my kids ride a bike on it. Well this man was riding a bike and a car hit him. Not hard enough to throw him from the bike, but the guy jumped off. The bike guy was yelling at the man, so he seemed okay. The man just drove off, didn't even stop. Well, he wasn't a man he was more a boy. A teenager on a phone. Tsk. Well I slowed down, but I didn't stop. I drove maybe MAYBE 15 feet, turned the car around and pulled over to check on the guy on the bike. I mean, I KNEW that was the roght thing to do. I felt horrible I was going to drive away. So I pull over, but he is already back on his back. I yell out my window because he had on headphone 'are you okay?' and he just glared at me and rode really fast away... what? WHAT? That is why so many people don't do the right thing. It made me want to cry, and I don't even know why.. I felt guilty, I was mad.. I dont know.
But geeze, clearly I was checking on him. He could have atleast nodded his head. Or not glared.
