Mean Girls

I was watching Good Morning America this morning and they were doing this thing with paid teenage actresses and hidden camera's. They had three "popular" girls picking and teasing one "geeky" girl in a park. They wanted to see what the adult reactions would be. Can you believe that some people would just walk on by, doing nothing! Not one man stopped to help at all. But some of the women would stop to help this poor girl out.
Now we all know that if this had been me, I wouldn't be able to keep my mouth shut. I would have jumped right in to defend this "geeky" girl, yelling, threatening to call the police, whatever it took to make these mean girls go away. So I pose this question.......What would you have done?

I would have had to say something. I don't know what but I would like to think I am a person who wouldn't be able to keep to myself on this one.

I saw the ads for that. I was very interested in seeing that. I totally would have said something. Without a doubt.

That's a hard one 'cause I am usually shy and keep to myself. I would hope that I would have done something though.
So I planned to update my blog this evening, but things got busy and I had other stuff thrown into my plans that had to take priority. I promise to update soon. I love getting to see and hear what is going on in your life. Your boys are getting so big and are very cute!

YOU KNOW THAT I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONTROL MY WORD VOMIT. YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE TO DEFEND THE UNDERDOG. THOSE GIRLS WOULD NOT HAVE NOT KNOWN WHAT HIT THEM AND CHANCES ARE I WOULD HAVE MADE A FOOL OF MYSELF IN THE PROCESS.

Honestly, I think people are afraid of teenagers--they don't want to get made fun of or be laughed at (which teenagers are liable to do), so they just try to ignore them. It's hard to know what I would do in this situation until I was actually faced with it, but I would hope and think that I would say something. I would have liked to have seen the episode so I could see what these girls were actually doing. I think it also really depends on where it is; some place like New York--I hear that people are more likely to keep to themselves, whereas if it were someplace in the midwest, I bet more people would stop to help.

I probably would have sat and watched, hoping it didn't get out of hand, like beat her to a pulp. I would probably tell Aho to go intervene, and he would probably tell me it is none of my business. Sad to say, I probably wouldn't do anything right away, I would wait to see if they were going to kill her!
