What If...

Do you ever think about the consequences of your actions? Do you ever think if maybe I hadn't of done this, that wouldn't have happened?

I have these moments all time.

A week or so ago I drove to Wawa for lunch. It was the day of Obama's inauguration so I left a little early to get back in time to watch the swearing in ceremony. Anyway, I was stopped at a traffic light right outside of work waiting to turn left. Normally there is a green arrow but I guess I didn't get to the intersection in time. I made my left....and so did the person in front of me. I don't know if they weren't paying attention...or just thought there was a green arrow so they could go, but they got slammed into by pickup truck making the left turn. The pickup truck definitely sped up (a-hole) because I was turning in front of him but this lady clearly wasn't paying attention.

I felt really bad. Really, really bad! I didn't know it had even happened but Hubby heard it and turned around. From what I heard everyone was OK....but I felt like what if. What if I had waited until there weren't any cars coming? I obviously was in no way at fault for the accident but it definitely made my day suck knowing that someone, like me, was just going to pick up lunch and probably totaled their car. Ugh!
