What would you do?
Sim just called and one of his workmates bought him a motorcycle.
That's right. Bought. Him. A. Motorcycle.
A little Kawasaki 250.
All of his workmates were in on it.
Is it obvious that Sim works entirely with men? Because if there'd been a single woman on his crew, she'd have been the voice of reason that said,
"Sim drives two hours to work each way. Do you know what kind of traffic he drives through? It's a nice thought, but saving a bit on gas is not going to console his wife and their three children when he gets plowed down by an 18-wheeler."
Ya'll, I may have a heart attack. And he hasn't even driven the thing.
I mean, on one hand, that is so incredibly sweet of his coworkers. I mean, who does that? Who says, "I think I'll buy a motorcycle for someone." It's awesome. It's fantastic. It's really, really nice.
But I love my husband and I would like him to stay in one piece.
Is that too much to ask for?
What would you do? Sim likes the bike and, of course, feels obligated. I, however, think he should be thinking of us and what might happen to us if something happened to him.
And while it's true that accidents can happen in cars, too, I don't know.... there's something about motorcycles that just really scares me.
So. What would YOU do?
