Well, I had my first traffic accident today. I was driving to work, when I noticed the cars ahead of me had stopped — not too unusual in morning traffic. I slowed to a safe stop, then checked my rear view mirror to see what the person behind me would do. I watched and thought, he’s coming awfully fast, oh no he’s WHAM.
Apart from a sore back (yes, I saw a doctor at Kay’s insistence), I’m doing all right. The back of my car is banged in a bit and I can’t open the trunk. The other fellow’s truck? Unscathed.
He was apparently too busy talking on his cell phone, telling a friend about his brand new truck.
If we talk on our phones while driving, let’s all use earpieces, shall we?
