Short story for this morning. I was passing through this intersection in the left lane when the guy in the middle lane decided to turn left.

Parking isn’t allowed in the left lane during rush hour, so unlike in the google street view, the lane was clear ahead. I am thankful that I was able to lay on the horn, hang a hard left, and somehow not get hit. I’m even more thankful that nobody was walking through the crosswalk. The guy in the other truck finished his turn (!) and then followed me around the block, turning left again once we came back around to this intersection. I can only assume he had no idea where he was going.

I guess I needed a little reminder that driving can be dangerous and I shouldn’t get complacent.
