    Situation & Exercise

    This is a true story happening in Paris and published on newspapers.

    François Le Berre, who has multiple sclerosis, was waiting to get on the bus from 17th arrondissement in Paris, but none of those on board would move.
    The driver then stood up and said:”Terminating! Everybody off!”,
    He told Mr Le Berre he could get on the bus, telling the other passengers: “Wait for the next one.”
    Everyone did it, but some people did grumble a bit. Mr Le Berre said the driver told the passengers: “Everyone might need a wheelchair one day.”

    Now that you have read about this case, make comments on the following questions within the framework of the emotional intelligence skills you have acquired through PeerCare.
    • What would you do if you were the driver? Would you do the same? What alternative way would you suggest if you are not satistified with what the driver did?
    • If you were in François Le Berre’ shoes, how would you feel? How would you react and manage the situation?
    • If you were one of the passangers, how would you react when you see Le berre who couldn’t get on the bus? How would you react to the driver when he asked everyone to get off?
    • If you were a caregiver accompanying with François Le Berre, how would you manage this situation?
