Quandry

I left a note on a neighbor's car window a bit ago when I went to get coffee letting 'em know their back tire was flat. Probably a bit of an obvious thing, but I figured it'd be neighborly giving 'em a heads up.

I masked my handwriting. Call it a modern culture thing, but even though I didn't cause their flat tire, hey, who knows how they'll take the bad news? It's sort of like walking into a apparel store wearing a product they sell and wondering if somebody will stop you for shoplifting.

It's a cultural oddity that being innocent might not always be enough to avoid hassle.

Oh well, I tried to do a nice thing. We'll see if it amounts to anything.

It is weird how circumspect we've become as a society. Hey, if the owner is as clueless as I am car wise such a note would save my rims!
