This morning, like every morning, I left home later than I should have if I wanted to be to work on time. I got to the end of my street and a large company X, cube van was parked too close to the corner for me to see around to assess oncoming traffic.
I cursed in my head...inched forward....then a bit more.....finally feeling like nothing was coming...I pulled out and continued my commute.
A quick glance sideways and I noticed a guy slumped over the steering wheel of the company cube van.
I drove on, still a little pissed off that buddy's nap had interfered in my race to get to work on time. It was not until I was in the lineup to merge onto the dvp that I realized that perhaps buddy was slumped over the steering wheel for a reason other than a nap.
By the time I got to work it was 15-20 minutes later, I called Toronto Police,who put me through to ambulance services, they dispatched a unit to check things out.
I will never know what the situation was....chances are that if is was a medical situation, any intervention from work was too late....perhaps if I had of stopped instead of cursing it would not have been.
But then again I may have brought undue grief upon a guy who was just catching some zzzzzs
I have a feeling this is one of those things that is going to haunt me.
the summer is here so a friday folky -
