    I wasn't too happy about it because he woke me up on a work day about an hour before my alarm was to go off (he was in TX, I was in HI) to ask to borrow the money to pay it off. .

    I drive very safely, thank you very much. I refuse to even talk on my cell phone in the car, I pay attention to the road and the drivers around me. I take my driving seriously, I have been in no accident I've caused (one accident where I was the top piece of bread in a car sandwich).

    As I said, it's not my job.

    And this is why we need police that take on the functions that they have had to in modern times.

    Because somewhere along the way people have said, "Its not my job" to promote safety and responsibility as a society.

    Let me guess... You'd see a guy busting into a window of your neighbor's car and stealing his Ipad and GPS off the dash and you'd say, *Shrug* "Not my job".

    That guy would be in a lot more trouble then I could be to him. Jason is very well armed.

    Not very nice of him, especially for wanting to borrow money. Did you lend it to him?

    Isn't EVERYONE responsible for safety on the roads? And think of this... if citizens help with enforcement of road safety laws, which really isn't that difficult to do and requires very little training to do right, wouldn't that leave the more highly trained police officers to attend to other duties that require a higher level of training?

    Yeah, I did. I'm his older sister. I have this irritating need to help all of my siblings when I can.

    You're a good person! That's not irritating nor needy.
