When you hit someone’s car by accident, there’s two ways to deal with the damage. The first, chosen all too frequently, is to flee the scene, ruining someone else’s day and burning a bit of your own humanity in the process.
The second way is to ask yourself: What would The Rock do?
Dwayne Johnson posted this photo to his Instagram account Monday, demonstrating that despite being a massive movie star, he has time to clean up even small mistakes — like accidentally sideswiping a pickup.
Of those who know they should at least turn around and confront mistakes like this, leaving a note is often considered enough; face-to-face acceptance of responsibility has become a rare outcome. It’s true that this particular case would likely not turn out different with another injured party; is anyone really going to risk damage to their own bodies by jumping The Rock in broad daylight?
All that said, Audie Bridges is right; it’s an awesome story. And it shows that sometimes the best way to deal with a mistake is to be less fast or furious.
