If being the "good guy" got you into trouble and gave you a bad reputation, would you stop trying to be the "good guy"?
A man has to do what he thinks is right anything else and he isn't really a man.
Although I don't know why
A couple guys kicked in a truck bed cover. They ran. I did not because I was on the other side of the parking lot. The cops were called on ME. They would have taken me if they hadn't caught the guy that ran.
Yeah. I'm not being the good guy for me, in doing it for you. Don't appreciate me and I go bad.
