What do you think? The guy who pushed said jumpers are selfish. Would that be similar to "early retirees are selfish"? Hey, I'm one less person clogging up the commute.

I wonder how long after the pushing incident that the traffic jam abated?

I don't think he meant jumpers are selfish. It's rather that the guy who threatened to jump but did not, causing a 5-hr traffic jam in the process, was selfish. If you want to jump, go ahead and jump.

So, retiree wannabes, just go ahead and do it. The water is fine.

Gee, if you don't have a safety float vest, then get off the bridge. Don't wait to be pushed off
