A Mistake I've Learned From ...
A definite mistake I've learned from would be when I crashed my moms
Cadillac. It was very horrifying and gave me post traumatic stress for over a month.
I had my license for well over three years before this accident, which made this day a
huge shock. My life flashed before my eyes in just the blink of an eye. I truely thought I
would not be making it back to my son that day.
On this Saturday morning, I woke up having a problem with my iPhone.
Being that my phone plays a ver important role in my life, I immediately hopped on the
phone with Apple Care. After being on hold for ten minutes, I spoke with a specialist,
and had an appointment set for later that afternoon. Perfect I thought; my phone will
be fixed in no time!
Right before leaving that afternoon, I asked my mother if I could
drive the Cadillac. "Ha ha ha," she replied. After a minute or so, she agreed and passed
me the keys. After jumping in the front seat, I started to head towards Altamonte
Springs. Being on the Interstate for a few minutes, I then quickly realized the GPS was
not in the car. Moving pretty quickly down I-4, I began to panic because I could not
remember ehich exit was for the Altamonte Mall.
Of course, right before it is to late, I reconize the exit sign I needed to
follow. Cautiusly but very quickly, I merged right, thinking the vehicle in that lane would
yield. Nope! Before I knew it, I slam right into the side of the other car. This sudden
smash sent my moms car spinning out of control. While the the car is spinning, my life
flashed before my eyes.
Once I notice the car has stopped and that I am still alive, I instantly
burst into tears. I managed to pull the car out of the intersection, to the side of the
road. The Police were called, a tow truck...
