A friend invites you to dinner. The check comes. After two minutes, he still hasn’t picked it up. You should… (good angel) Clear throat, raise eyebrows questioningly, look at bill… (bad angel) fill mouth with small change, then spit coins out one by one into the check folder until amount plus 10% is reached.
You walk throughÂ a doorway and let the door close on elderly gentleman with a walker. You should… (good angel) help the man up off the floor and apologize. (bad angel) Take the tennis ball off one of the legs of the walker, hold it over man’s head and say “Up boy, Up.”
You are a surgeon on duty in an emergency room when an angry fat man, ranting into his cell phone about our socialist government, collapses. You… (good angel) open him up, determine he needs a pacemaker, install it, sew him up and wish him well. (bad angel) You open him up, install his cell phone, release him from hospital and begin calling him.
