It has been pleasing to see once again the volunteer spirit of this country we call home come to the fore in a time of crisis… As a member of the Rural Fire Service for 15 years, I feel for those who have lost family, friends, neighbours and property over the last few weeks. It is with pride that I’ve seen members of the various emergency services (some of them colleagues) give up their time (often away from family and most of them giving up work and wages).
Unfortunately, some members of our society don’t share the same kind of spirit that this country embodies. That brings me to the gentleman who backed into my car on Thursday night, as it was parked outside my father’s Yarramba Crescent home, leaving quite significant damage to the side guard. Only you know why you didn’t leave your details but it’s a good guess that you didn’t want to pay for the damage. There are people in our society whose behaviour is worse than yours my friend, but to not take responsibility for your actions is quite dissapointing when we see the courage and determination that we’ve seen from our emergency services time and time again.
My question to you is: “Do you have the courage to admit your mistake and pay the consequences for your actions?”
