    Screw 'em. They probably just did it for the accolades.

    Aw.... If you were about to get hit by a train, Jack, I'd pull you to safety -- even if no one would thank me afterwards. (Honest!)

    @Booya: That comment that Night quoted? I thought that was pretty good, thank you for making me think.

    No implication, just thought it was a funny idea.

    c) We have clashing personalities: I'd probably try to be kinder in my evaluations of the person. They might not be that into it though. Maybe form a respect (if it wasn't there already). There are ways to personally despise a person while acknowledging that perhaps they might have a valid approach in certain situations.

    At any rate, I'd definitely feel obligated to at least thank the person. And re-evaluate (like ajblaise stated).
    I basically agree with this, with the caveat that I never actually despise people due to conflicting personalities-I might be irritated by their company, but I wouldn't have any sort of animosity towards them, and I frankly don't understand why conflicting personalities would cause despite by itself. Conflicting personalities might exacerbate pre-existing differences, creating despite in what might otherwise be a respectful but oppositional relationship, or even an occasionally strained friendship, but otherwise its a non-issue.

    since i'd hate for you to feel horrible later on for forgetting, i'll go ahead and say that you're welcome for the thread that inspired her to say something that made you think.

    Hm, personally I can't hate a Person for too long anyways. I am always pretty forgiving and try to work Things out but IF it was a Person who I hated it would really make me think afterwards. I would wonder WHY he or she saved my Life and that maybe I was wrong about him or her.

    I would - in any Case - thank him or her and try to return the Favorite somewhen. Either by saving his or her Life one Day or by doing Something else he or she asks for a One-Time-Favor in Return.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    Ok, I was just asking because I've noticed my response is different from most others in this thread, but I was just basing it on my past experience. I've known a couple of different people where we didn't really get along at first, but later we became good friends. With one guy I didn't really like him until he invited me to play D&D. It wasn't life saving, but it was good enough for me to reconsider about him. We eventually became best buds through college.

    Does he have money? And a wife?

    I likely wouldn't be inclined to thank them much or see them very differently. I don't think it says a whole lot about someone that they'd pitch in to keep a person from dying in front of them, especially in situations when doing so provides no significant risk.

    On top of that, I often dislike people on principle of their general behavior or ideas, not simply how they treat me. So if such a person saved me, they would just be a disgraceful, idiotic, bastard that happened to save me. So a quick thanks might be in order, as being saved is appreciated, but I see no reason why I would reflect on them any better.
