Well? In all circumstances except presents, is it even remotely fair to receive a favour of some kind without being gracious enough to return it?

Yes, the chances are, one day you will need to return that favour.

*sighs* I was talking in terms of real world contexts, and this just evolves into another rep discussion. Someone give me some bad rep and sign it please. It would break the monotony of this one person who has gotten me every day for the last week without signing. And for very stupid reasons.

Fair point, but I was thinking along the lines of someone helping you with a car when it is broken down. Do we just take it for granted, or perhaps feel inspired to take 5 minutes to help someone else in need?

yeah i would help you with a broken car, although i hope someone else would help me if i was in the same position - charity comes from the heart and selfishness. ALthough i n london i probably would walk straight by, the only palce where i would intervene is in a fight, where id probably get the **** kicked out of me. London is not the place to offer help or give it to strangers, pull out ur wallet to give em £1 for the bus and they mug you.

Thats a good point, but how does one not feel thankful when say you are helped with car troubles at the side of the road? Do we just assume that it is the law for someone to help us out?

yep, if im somewhere im comfortable, then yes i will help, but if its dark in brixton i will walk straight by and guess what i have never been mugged or attacked or anything, you have to be very aware of whats going on around you - i have come clsoe several times. I help people when i feel that i safely can- although in the example of a fight i have stepped in, but one day i will get my head kicked in - several people have had both the people unite on them and kill them. Conversely London is actually safer know, but peopole feel more afraid.
