    If you saw a...

    -pensioner unable to afford their grocery bill?
    -a kid with autism bullied in the street?
    -a young person coming out to their parent who reacts badly?
    -a blind person being deliberately given the wrong change?

    These are scenarios acted out on the US tv-show 'what would you do?' and the results are often extremely thought provoking.

    Two scenarios I've come across in real life are:
    -a pensioner trips and falls in the middle of the road. In this case myself and one other person stopped to help - in the middle of manchester city centre

    -a youngish man, around 18-20, and homeless, sat in the street in croydon crying his eyes out. I didn't stop, and in hindsight I feel bad about it.

    What scenarios similar to this have you come across, and what was your reaction? If you haven't seen the show, I highly recommend the 'what would you do?' show - lots of clips are on youtube.
