jemanden (fast) überlaufen, hey Marie! April 23, 2006

Posted by The Truth in Im Allgemeinen.

I witnessed someone almost turn to roadkill today. Man oh man.

So i was walking out to the 77 bus-stop this afternoon with my iPod in one hand and my Dunhill menthol lights in the other, and was trudging my miserable way upslope (for those of you who have been acquainted with the area around my house) near the 173 bus-stop when i saw a bus halt in front of me, and this guy stepped out. The thing is, this fucking joker didn't bother to wait for the bus to move on before he began crossing the road.

What's next is gonna sound like it came from a movie, but i assure you it isn't. I'll swear upon my sword, if i have to.

Either way, what came next was very loud horning, a bang, and he just fell to the ground, along with the car's right side-view mirror. The driver got out and tended to the guy immediately – i guess it was a natural reaction, especially since he was conscious, and that there were 2 witnesses to the whole thing, so i don't think he could make it a hit-and-run.

Anyway, my Urteil (verdict) is: it's the pedestrian's fault. I don't know why, but it's the second near-miss i've seen of late. And it's all involving these secondary school kids. Maybe schoolwork is so hard that they're forced to give up some vital common sense to store extra knowledge. I mean, if you can't see oncoming traffic, then don't fucking cross the road! Jeez. If they're stressed by homework or something, becoming roadkill isn't the solution!

And that is very, very commonsensical. But then, sometimes their parents do it too, so maybe they're just following examples. I thought that common sense would always prevail, but i think i've been proven wrong here. JEEZ. Maybe it's because they're non-drivers? I mean, drivers who are pedastrains tend to be more careful. But then again, i have friends who are non-drivers and are still equally careful.

Conclusion? RETARDS.

And here's a shoutout to sweets: HEY YO! That movie was pretty good stuff huh? Anyway…it's nice meeting up…let's meet up once a month for a movie or for clubbing! =D Anyway, i'm glad you enjoyed it…such movies are rare to come by as well…mmm.

And for all of you in Singapore: CATCH Mirrormask BEFORE IT CLOSES. I think it'll only be open for a couple more days, tops. Don't miss it! Especially if you're a fan of neil gaiman.
