What Would You Do?

I'm watching ABC which is airing a show What Would You Do? It's an interesting show because they set up scenarios and tape peoples' reactions to those scenarios. The three segments I got to see were tough ones. The first was what if you caught your friend's significant other cheating? Would you tell them? The next was what if you saw someone stealing another person's wallet or purse? Would you do anything about it? The third was what if you saw someone littering? Would you tell them to stop? Most of us are caring people and would do anything to protect ourselves or our loved ones. But this show really got me thinking about what I would do if confronted with any of these situations. I would think I would do the right thing but would I?
The experts all said that just by reacting you were doing the right thing. But to do nothing was unacceptable. And if all else fails, just causing a scene and getting others involved makes it easier. Except in the case with the cheating spouse. You really should have that conversation with your friends and family. Would you want to know if your spouse was cheating? I know I would. Note to all my friends out there. Tell me!!!
