This evening, I witnessed a bicyclist get a little bit hit by a cab driver who'd just run a stop sign.

"You motherfucker!" the bicyclist yelled. "You just ran the stop sign and hit me!"

But instead of speeding off, or trying to weasel his way out of a lawsuit, the driver emerged from his cab with his arms outstretched, and enveloped the biker with a giant hug.

"Brother," the huggist said, "I'm sorry."

Immediately, the bicyclist switched from vengeful rage to sweet acceptance. After a couple minutes of talking, in which the bicyclist urged his newfound companion to never again roll through a stop sign, the two again hugged and parted ways.

The moral of this story: No matter the level of your injurious negligence, an unsolicited hug will buy you out of all consequences.

This must be in "The Cabbie's Guide to Scofflawing" Same damn thing happened to me a few years ago... but I was in a car.
