Why Slow & Steady Doesn't Always Work (but the outcome is great)

While driving down one of my city's streets, I spotted something in the road..a turtle, trying to cross-I couldn't believe that cars were driving around it and not stopping to help. I have a soft spot for animals, especially those in distress or danger. I pulled a u-turn, parked in the middle of the road and carried the turtle to the other side...he was obviously trying to navigate to another body of water. The thing was huge and beautiful and, I swear, almost bit me. No problem, he was now safe and making his way in the woods.

Beside the possibility of being hit by a car, once the ordeal was over, I realized there was a line of cars in each direction-uh oh! Instead of honking horns, imagine my surprise when people started clapping and shouting "thank you" from their cars...totally unexpected and graciously received.

(I know he's smiling at me)
