Yesterday a truck tried to run me over as I passed him, taking up both lanes of a passing zone and forcing me into oncoming traffic making me hit a safety marker in the middle of the road so my car has a brand new dent in the hood. It was too late to stop and the alternative was hitting many more of those markers or getting hit by the truck. So after I go to my shrink after work I guess I need to head to the police station to file a report on top of having a huge project due tonight, on top of various other stressors.
Should I even bother going to the police? I remember his trailer number, it was 613. I called his company but I forgot his license plate. They could get that off of the traffic light footage, I just don't want to risk pointing out my behavior afterwards (getting out of my car at the next stoplight and waving my maglite around) and end up turning myself in for a ticket. I suppose it is better than the alternative, waiting around for the ticket to show up in the mail, which will probably just result in that guy getting away with it.
Anyway this is why I'm here so early, I needed to get these thoughts out before my hectic day swallows me whole because I won't have time later.
