Digressions – Setting a Bad Example for the Kids?

While out running tonight, I saw a group of young boys on their bikes and scooters waiting to cross the road. They were half way out into the cross walk as a pick up truck came cruising down the street, not slowing at all.

I gestured to the driver with my arms about slowing down and towards the kids. He never slowed down and just rolled on past yakking on his cell phone. I yelled “hey!” and flipped him the bird.

As I did the kids crossed the rest of the way, and one said “that guy was an asshole.”

Another said to me, “Thank you, sir.”

I nodded and kept running, trying to decide whether or not I had set a bad example for the kids.
