Yup, kinda busy with work and all that stuff from this morning. In fact was so busy that I only had a chance to consume the bread I bought after lunch [12.30pm] at this very minute [5.00pm]. Anyway, I shall not bore you with my boring work complaints, but if you want you can always ask me about it.
I'm gonna need some help for today's post. Just post a comment or 2 about how you feel about the following scenario:
You were crossing the road with a girlfriend/boyfriend, and you spot a truck speeding towards both of you. You think that there's no way both of you can escape the truck so, with all your might, you shove your girlfriend/boyfriend to the side, only to realise that the truck actually swurved to that same side at the very last minute, resulting in your girlfriend/boyfriend getting injured/killed, and you escaping with minor scratches. Are you to blame?
Come on people. Let's hear what you gotta say.

9 bored people said something about this
Don't think will be the person's fault cause what we predict is "the truck is heading towards us". If the truck just changed direction after we throw the other party then should blame it on FATE. Cause FATE wants u dead. U can't escape death twice.

The intention decides whether the action was a positive or a negative one. Since the intention of pushing the bf/gf was to save him/her, it was a positive action regardless of the fact that the result was a negative one.

I wouldn't blame me because I don't know my reaction. I could have jumped to the side too instead of pushing my boyfriend ! Have never been in such a situation. But if there is somebody to blame then it's the truck driver !

I'd probably feel guilty as all hell, but no, being objective I wouldn't say it was my fault

no, but you will probably have guilt for quite some time. deserving or not, well, not, in my opinion, but the mind works in funny ways!

I think that I would be guilt ridden for the rest of my life if it happened to me. But, looking at it from an outside pov there is no way you could've predicted what would happen, so it most definitely puts the blame on the truck driver for "speeding towards you".

I don't know if you can exactly blame yourself; however, it is said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
