Now let's say you have children at home. A wife. You're going to have a moment where you ask yourself if you're willing to risk leaving them on their own to try to save a stranger.

It's a pretty damn tough question at that point, is it not?

If I get stabbed and die, my wife makes good money and is good looking. Oh, and I'm insured for quite a damn bit, so she'll take her massive heap of cash and probably do a hell of a lot better than me within 9 months. So yeah, I'd risk it.

But if I had kids...man, that's a tough question. My obligation to them as a father is a hell of a lot greater than my obligation to this poor schlub on the elevator.

This stuff is deeper than we make it.
I don't know if you have time to process all of that shit in that short period of time. It's really fight or flight.

But apparently there's also "stand there like a deer in the headlights" or "take a ****ing video of it."

Though I really think that last one was a setup. They didn't show the lead-in to that guy pulling out his phone, so I'm calling BS on that one.
