Yesterday, on the way to work, it was raining and the road was wet. Heading up to a stop sign, I was going too fast, and when I applied the brake, I slid for about 30 feet. At exactly this same time, there was a truck(yes, there it is again, my obligatory truck mention) carrying a load of wallboard. Had I not stopped in time, I would have rammed right into the side of the truck, and probably be dead or at least seriously injured. But I stopped in time, and the only thought I had was:
I still have to go to work.
Yes, there is a downside to avoiding accidents.
