Broken down, deplorable behaviour

What a bunch of losers. A car had broken down at an intersection.  Hazard lights blinking. A woman sat behind the wheel, telephoning for assistance. I’ve always known that Koreans can be ego-centric, but this was the worst display of “me first, fuck everyone else” I’ve seen in a long time. Honking, looking back with aggressive stares as they drove past, and all the while no-one thought to help he push her car out of the way. Sometimes she would step out of the car an usher people on. If it as obvious to me that the car had broken down, how obvious was it to other people and other drivers?

Making a comparison for the worst, people in New Zealand would have helped her, if only to get the car out of the flow of traffic. Sometimes you’d have someone that could actually get your car going so that you could get to a garage..

When the repair vehicle arrived with so much blaring of it’s sirens and horns, all it took was a man to lift the bonnet and one minute to get the car started. It’s at times like this, I’m proud to be a Kiwi. God help these guys if there’s a genuine emergency and you have to think.
