Saturday the 14th

Today has less luck than yesterday
***
Terrible pretty much sums up my driving.
I easily succumb to road rage especially whenever I get cut by a jeepney or a tricycle
But today, I had a very humbling if not humiliating experience.
Today, for the first time, I get to experience baptism by fire.
I hit a motorcycle which I was trying to overtake.
If that wasn't bad enough, a girl was driving the motorcycle.
I hit her in front of the school.
And apparently, she is also a student there.
I don't think it's fortunate.
-The school guards were there to assist us as I helped her get up.
-Injuries were minor and she didn't ask for further help.
-She didn't take my number or any offer of my assistance.
-Damage to her motorcycle was minimal
-The guards took note of our names and student numbers
I fear thid would cease to haunt me
