if you followed me on twitter, or you were aware of my tweets, then you would have known already. for those who don't know what the toot i'm talking about,
i met an accident this afternoon.
yes. an accident.
with a trailer.
not a lorry.
a 1 1/2 storey high trailer.
and Alhamdulillah i'm fine and well (and attached) =D
here's the story!
this morning when i woke up, i had this uneasy feeling that i can't really give a name to. this feeling that you feel like something bad is going to happen, but you think you're being paranoid, so you try to ignore it, but it still comes back to you, like obb can my description be any longer? know what i mean?
i felt that. i felt like i shouldn't go to work. but then, what excuse can i give to the office?
me: hello, yaw, i don't think i should come to office yawww!office: you crazey mayn?? whatcha think yo daddeyh own this companayh? you be trippin'!me: yaw i just have this uneasy feelin, aiteeee! you be undastandin'!office: no paycheck this month.
dayumm. ok fyi, people in my office don't 'sound' like that! they use civilised english =)
so yeah, i went to work anyway, despite having this feeling. while driving, i prayed to God to make this feeling go away. to make it be just my imagination. and i've recited Al-fatihah and ayat kursi to calm myself down.
i got to the office fine.
but at lunch was when it happened.
it was at the u-turn near my office. i'm not gonna go into detail with the story, but just know my front part of the car was in between the back of the trailer's huge tyre (it's bigger than my car!) and the u-turn road divider.
it was a freaky experience. Alhamdulillah my reflexes were quick too! i think if i hadn't reacted quickly just now, it would've been worse!
anyhoos, a few strangers came and help me and the trailer driver to get my car unstuck! thank you kind strangerss!!! may Allah bless you! =D and my colleagues actually came to help. including my boss! you guys are awesome! =D
don't worry, if you're worried, coz i'm fine and healthy, and my collegue who was more at risk was fine too, so Alhamdulillah.
the reason why i tell you this, is not to ask for sympathy. NO!
it's to tell you guys about instinct.
when you have this uneasy, deep gut, hard-to-explain feeling, and you feel like something's gonna happen to you or people around you, trust it. take necessary actions, if you expected it. but when you can't, pray.
God made things happen to us, good and bad, for us to learn. and from this experience, i definitely learnt.
i learnt that i should trust my instincts, be careful, be more patient when driving, be thankful, and practise my reflexes.
so for credits, i thank all the strangers who helped me during the accident, my colleagues who helped me bring my car back to the office, Dato' for taking me to the police station, policemen for being very cooperative, my parents for their support and strength, Allah, for allowing me to live on =)
