    Banned
    i was standin at the bus stop with my 2 youngest kids waitin for the bus home when i noticed a car that looked like it was reversing down the middle on the street and oncoming traffic so this car gets into level of my view when i notice theres no driver just a passenger that has special needs ( which i later found out ) so automatically i thre everything i had in my hands run down to this car but at this point had hit one of those big black metal bullard things so i jups down the driver side and swing open the door while the cars still movin ( i really hurt my leg at this point ) jumps in and pull the handbrake . I helps out the man alan that was in the passanger side whos was scared ******* by this point didnt have a clue what was going on gets all his stiff and stands him to the side of the road away from the car as me not being a driver wasnt sure if the car would hold now or it would start rolling again , just then i hears a woman shoutin and runnin down the street she was the driver she hud run into a shop and when she came out she thought someone has stolen her car , anyways i told her what id seen and done and she asked me if alan was ok i says YES i got him out the car etc , 2 fellas that had come runnin behind me jacked up the womans car and removed the bullard , by this time the police had arrived and took a statement and all my details the checked me over and says i was ok 2 leave , the woman driver didnt even say thank you to the 2 lads she just barked on about how she was going to have to call her work as she was late whats annoyin me is that she was just a carer for this man what happens if he had been hurt what happens if i hadnt stopped the car its scary , ive ended bruising my knee and hurt my ankle for helping this woman out , maybe im just a moaner but i was sooo scared my hands wudnt stop shaking

    no just thing some kind of emblem on your chest in body paint for future antics will look spot on :thumbsup:

    Well done - quick thinking, but you really should have your leg examined just in case. You sound like you might still be in shock, so might not be feeling the pain. Didn't the police suggest that?

    how bad is it? you wouldn't have felt too much pain at the time because of the adrenalin - but it's always possible you have caused more damage than you think - If it's painful to walk on in the morning, I'd have it looked at to be safe.

    Darn you for interfering in Darwinian evolution:x

    Well done though.

    Don't be too annoyed about the woman not saying thanks. Some people genuinely are inconsiderate, unappreciative little trolls, but I think most people forget to say thanks because they're too caught up in the moment, and are too focused on the bad to realise the good and to appreciate it. Care workers are usually pretty decent people, and she'll probably be kicking herself for not having the clarity of mind to take your details and have you sent out a massive bouquet of flowers and a bottle of wine as a gesture of gratitude. 'Cos that's what I'd do, since it was brilliant what you did. Well done :thumbsup:

    Good deeds do pay. Even if no one else notices or takes the time to thank you, you feel good about yourself. To me that's a pretty nice feeling.

    Phone the sun, i bet they find out who the useless woman was that left the car to run away. You should get some sort of recognition for your bravery. Its only fair.
