Feeling horribly embarassed

Fri, Dec 7, 2012 at 7:47 AM

Last night, when turning out of the street from my work,I had to make a right turn. A car was coming but I could see from another light across street the light was yellow and about to turn red soon. And I thought I could just turn real quick. I mean this car wasn't slowing down AT ALL.

I tried to make the quickest turn I could make. Which after I did it, I felt incredibly stupid and thought what a stupid mistake!

I know I could have been hit. Somehow...I got lucky. What makes it more embarrassing was that my supervisor had been behind me before I made my turn. So she saw me do this...

I am never doing that again. Thinking I can turn when the light is turned yellow for the other person and trying to turn real quick like that. Dunno how close I was to getting hit.

    It is an embarassing situation to be in, to be caught making a bad decision. But feel blessed too - thank the stars that you made this mistake now and that no one was hurt by your mistake. Also thank them for making you wiser, because now you know why it was a bad decision and it will help you to grow into a good driver :)

    Everyone makes mistakes, here's a *big hug* from me because right now my nerves are on edge for you! The best thing you can do is move on and learn from it.

    It is. I do. Right. I hope it does. I thought to myself afterward, "I shouldn't have done that. I should have waited for the car to go and then turn right."

    *Hug* Right. I learned that I'm not going put me or others(the other driver(s)) in that situation again.

    It's great that no one was hurt! You can just take this as a learning experience. (:

    Heh. Very true. I'm going try to not think about it too much. Since the car and myself are fine. And so is the other driver.

    Right. Never think you can make the turn real quick when a car isn't slowing down. WAIT for him to go and then make the turn.

    If it makes you feel any better, when I was in college and was really tired one day from having stayed up late studying, I was in a parking lot and put my car in drive when I meant to put it in reverse. I ran it right into a concrete post that was in front of me! Yup, felt horribly embarrassed. I'm not sure who saw me actually do that, but everyone saw the big dent in my front bumper later. I got asked about it a lot!

    So, yeah, everyone has those moments. I'm glad that you weren't hurt making your turn, and no one else was, either.

    Oh wow. When I was learning how to drive, my dad asked me to pull into a parking spot at my work on a Sunday (When no one is there) and instead of hitting the brakes, I hit the gas. So the car went over a little embankment. My dad had to try to get the car back up and out of the embankment. He was like "Did you bring your phone?" Just in case we needed to call a place help us pull the car out of there.

    Now I totally regret telling a coworker. Because she has told a few people.

    Right. It was pretty close. I think I was just lucky I made a quick turn. I definitely learned my lesson. If I'm ever in that kind of situation again, I'm just going let the car go first before making my turn.
