Yesterday I was almost hit by a mail truck. The driver didn’t even see me. He can blowing out of a side street. I got out of his way by about six inched and he kept going, almost hitting a parked car. I don’t think he even saw me.
Today someone almost hit me on a semi-busy street.
I’m not out much these days but I’ve seen more distracted drivers than ever. Fewer drivers but more distracted. People are driving super slow on the freeway and super fast on the neighborhood streets. You’d think it was a full moon (no offense to my Werewolf friends.)
Cars are our homes away from home. We get in, crank up the music, and go on auto pilot. But sometimes we see weird things.
Leave your comments and distracted and weird driver stories below just for fun. Leave them even if they aren’t fun, but anything not nice will be removed. You know the game. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new short story.
And get off your phone when you drive. It can wait. Don’t be a dick.
