To The Luckiest Guy In The World

This is addressed to you, and you know who you are. You’re the one person in the world that does not have to worry about doing stupid things that would get anyone else hurt or killed. Things like talking on the phone or texting while driving, things like walking behind that car in the parking lot that’s starting to back up, things like pulling out from a side street into traffic without enough room because you know the other guy will slow down to let you in.

You go through life knowing that all the bad things happen to the other guy and not to you. You are blessed by the fact that you are too good, to careful, and to skilled to get hurt. If you do have an accident it has to be the other persons fault.

The trouble is that you’re not the only one who thinks they are so blessed. One of these days the two of you will meet and when you do chances are some innocent bystander will get hurt. I just hope that it is not me or someone I know.
