Scenario 3: Fight

Introduction : Step between the two men

You chose: Step between the two men.

Both men hesitate, with confused looks on their faces. Being smaller than they are, you step out of reach and say, “Is everything OK here?”

The man who was running, the aggressor, growls, “Mind your own business.”

You can...

Stay out of it
Turn towards the woman and ask her if she’s all right.
Get the others to vote
Just stand there.
Ask to talk
Answer him, “Back off, Bozo, or I’ll call the cops.”
