'No Faulty'

'No Faulty'

In Abu Dhabi one afternoon, as I parked for my hair appointment, my car suddenly took a little lurch. I looked around, then back to discover another, much larger, SUV had bumped into my car. Once we got it sorted out, poor guy - he felt awful and then REALLY awful when he saw the damage to his Range Rover -- the police report said for me, "No Faulty."

We use "No Fault" to imply who will be financially responsible for repairs to the vehicles. Funny, because while one party is under the "no fault" off-the-hook financial umbrella, the other party is indeed "to blame."

Blame is a human trait that our egos use to attempt to "protect" ourself (if it's your fault, then it's not my fault).

BUT it doesn't work. We still feel bad. Love works.

(Even knowing that, when I drop something or make a mistake, I still find myself instinctively looking around for who might have caused it.)


Blame none, love all. That works.
