Well, that's one way to perk up in the morning...

I almost got t-boned on the way to work this morning, and by almost I mean the idiot was within oh... a foot of my truck. I actually lost sight of his headlights because of how close he came (and I could see that it was a guy in the truck).

Not. Fun.

I was driving down a residential street in my neighborhood and some moron decided to run the stop sign at a street that dead ends on the street that I was on. I suspect that if it had been a normal intersection where he didn't have to turn (and hence slow down) I would have gotten hit. It was a total insurance commercial moment where you see it happening in slow motion. I heard tires screeching looked over, saw headlights, saw truck, saw it getting closer and actually saw the driver by the time he got it stopped right next to my truck as it drove by. It all happened in a split second but wow, adrenaline.

I always wonder what you do in those situations. My instinct is to stop and make sure everything is ok, but obviously without getting hit there was no accident so stopping is pointless. I'd complain about how it's a crappy way to start a Monday, but all things considered, I'm rather happy that I was almost hit instead of actually hit. Of the two options that's definitely the preferred one.


  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
