In 1991, a movie came out called "Grand Canyon." In that film, a well-to-do lawyer tries to avoid a traffic jam by detouring off the expressway, and soon gets lost in a very dangerous and unfamiliar part of the city. His car breaks down. It’s night, and although he manages to call a tow truck, by the time it arrives, his expensive car is surrounded by gang members. Clearly, they are planning to take his car by force, and possibly harm him in the process. Then the tow-truck driver, "Simon," arrives, played by Danny Glover. Over the protests of the gang members, Simon proceeds to hook the car up to his truck. And then Simon does something unexpected. He asks the leader of the gang to just let him go. "I’ve gotta ask you for a favor," he says. "Let me go my way here. This truck’s my responsibility, and now that the car’s hooked up to it it’s my responsibility too." And then he goes on, "Man, the world ain’t supposed to work like this. I mean, maybe you don’t know that yet. I’m supposed to be able to do my job without having to ask you if I can. That dude is supposed to be able to wait with his car without you ripping him off. Everything is supposed to be different than it is."
