Setting Things Straight with an Apology
To: The two women and three dogs that I had a “near miss” with yesterday
Dear Ladies and Dogs,
I’m sorry about our almost incident yesterday. I know it would have been my fault if anyone or any dog got hurt. It is quite amazing that I went between you all and nobody was hit or hurt.
My only excuse is that in 21 years of being at that intersection there has never been a single pedestrian to the right of me while I stopped there. I waited for the cars coming from the left to clear, and assumed that no one would be over there – like every other day in 21 years.
I promise to now look both ways before going through the intersection.
But please, for your safety, please make sure a driver is looking at you and gives you the right of way before walking in front of a car.
Glad that everyone is OK,
