I had a scary moment last night. While driving home from work shortly after midnight, I stopped at a stoplight. It turned green so I proceeded to turn left. An SUV drove right in front of me heading the direction I came from at 40 to 50 mph while I was turning. Being the person I am, I honked and swore vociferously. I realized later that I’d come within five seconds of dying. If I’d been in the intersection when the SUV drove through (potentially DUI), it would have hurt or killed me. Not to mention my car. I don’t know how the world would get by without a red VW Beetle.

The other thing that bothers me about this whole incident is something I can’t remember. I can’t remember if the turn arrow was green. If it was green, then I can blame the other guy for almost whatever. If it was red, then I’m a damn idiot and almost died due to stupidity.

Either way, I’m not happy with it. Not at all.
