A little note for fun

- Iíve written a paper on the instinct of self-preservation.
- The one consisting in the preservation of oneís own rights?
- I am not joking! The point is to preserve oneís life, it is no laughing matter. Listen instead:
(Reading.)
A big tire squeal, a violent toot a few meters away from a woman, who was pushing in front of her a baby carriage on the passage reserved for the pedestrians.
- You crazy! the mother shouts.
- It was very careless of you not even to look at whether a car was arriving!
- I had the right to cross! It belonged to you to stop!
- And if, unfortunately, I had killed your baby?
- Well then? You would have been in the wrong!
