i caused an accident this evening.. not my fault though..

silly fellow was in the right most lane.. which turned out to be a turning lane.. so he got impatient and didn't check his side view mirror/blind spot.. tried to cut into my lane.. i couldn't brake.. so had to honk him to warn him. He was caught totally off and was so surprised that he swerved back into the lane.. couldn't stop in time and bang (extra loud) into the car that was waiting to turn.

Crumpled bonnet.. luckily the car that got hit braked.. else it'd be a whole chain of crumpled cars.. there was at least 5 cars waiting to turn.

well... who asked him to be impatient? if stuck in the wrong lane.. then stay there till it clears.. or filter only when there's no car!

On a separate note.. i'm so captivated by this song titled, "Upside Down" by Jack Johnson. This is the title song from the upcoming movie, Curious George! Very nice song and cute MTV to boot too.. and did you know that Jack Johnson was a surfer before he hang up his surf shorts for his ukele cos his face got banged up too much!. err.. from the surf board lar!

P/S: just in case you were wondering.. neither my car nor myself was hurt in any way.

thanks for all your concern.

yeah.. no one was hurt.. but it was quite interesting... and i do feel a little bit guilty.. but if i didn't honk at him.. he would have hit me on my side... so oh well.. stuff like that happens.. just drive defensively?
