    To help or not to help, that is the question? (Sarc)

    No question to it any more – don’t help! Unless it’s someone you know and you know they are the type that have the concept of a return spring then fuck ‘em.

    Cold and callous? Not at all. Occasionally when passing a down and out I’ll dig in my pocket and give them my spare change which would normally be in the region of €4 - €6, and I really don’t have money to spare. I am not without compassion, but I’m just as capable of walking right past them – I can’t save the world, right?

    But especially with regards helping women I’m out!

    My last effort was some 10 - 12 years ago. I was on a train heading back to what is now my home from a trip to my hometown. I sat for over 2 hours facing a young woman. She was early 20’s, short, slightly built, and to me incredibly pretty. I was in my 40’s. We sat in silence for the whole trip – I was already a MGHOW – listening to music on our relative phones. I admit I couldn’t help but sneak the odd peak at her during the journey, but that was it.

    Anyhow, at the end of the journey she was obviously struggling to get a large suitcase from an overhead rack, as I say she was quite short and slight. Being over 6’ tall I knew I would have no problem with it so I offered to help. There was nothing for her to be concerned about with regards me hitting on her, I’d left her alone for over 2 hours. Maybe this pissed her off but I was old enough to be her dad.

    She said no. But it was the way she said no. It wasn’t “Thanks for the offer but I can manage.” It was just a blunt “No!” with the sound of derision and the look on her face was one of disgust. I really couldn’t understand it. Needless to say I just shrugged my shoulders, turned on my heel and left her to it.

    The only place to draw the line of humanity is on the poor and destitute, or a matter of life and death, to stand by and say or do nothing with full knowledge that someone's life of safety is endangered makes one complicit in that person's demise, has nothing to do with gender or ethnicity, it has everything to do with your own personal humanity.

    We are the authors our lives, we need to be careful how we write our own personal history, we can create saints, or monsters, it all depends on our own personal humanity, when you stop casting pearls before swine, you have a good lock on your humanity that's not abused and exploited by others.

    Hear, hear
    Hear, hear is an expression used as a short, repeated form of hear him/her. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker. It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as "the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons", with many purposes, depending on the intonation of its user.Wikipedia

    Hmm. Maybe that's where it's most familiar from, but I suspect its origins lie a little further back.

    It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as "the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons",
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hear,_hear

    "And has since been used"

    In fact, while not overly used in day-to-day speak it is nevertheless common enough to be understood, at least on this side of the pond.

    I suspect the House of Commons adopted it for this very reason.

    Edit:

    There is also some contention over whether it should be spelled:

    Hear, hear; meaning open your ears and listen.
    Here, here; meaning this is where you should direct your attention.
    Or Hear, here; meaning this is what you should be listening to.
