Weekdays of Near misses

This past few days have been very trying and tiring for me. There have been too many near misses almost leading to major casualties both in emotional and physical sense. To illustrate one such instance is the near miss that I had with this idiotic driver in a blue satria driving up a one way street near the Curve.

Here I was driving my car down from the Pencala Link towards the Curve exiting it, and going downhill towards the Curve's car park. The driver of the Satria, going up this oneway street and in hessitation crossed my path trying to get into the entrance of a Proton showroom nearby. Now, here I was minding my own business going down this lane (at not to fast a speed) have had to do an emergency stop. Now, cars on a gravel road going downhill don't take too kindly to emergency braking and I find that my car (with ABS an all) was gliding towards that blue satria.

The irony of this is that, U can see the car coming slowly to a halt, but don't have control of when its going to stop. I escape inches from banging into him. But as usual, (the story of my life) the driver of the satria not only did not have the courtesy to apologise but went on to make cursing gestures at me. Such is my physical predicament .......

Fortunately, this near physical casualties almost mimic my also recent emotional one. What a life...............
