Sometimes you just need to get something off your chest and just telling it to friends and/or family, who are bound to tell you that what you did wasn't as bad as you think, isn't enough. In my short life so far (I'm only 21 XD) I haven't done too many horrible things. I don't do drugs, I don't drink very often (if at all) and I don't bully or be mean to people. I volunteer, I work hard and get good grades in college. Today though I feel like I've done one of the worst things ever. Where I live it is normal for you to wait for a funeral procession to pass even if you have the green light. I've seen about five so far in my driving career (which is five-six years on the road) which might be more than usual because I live in an area with funeral homes nearby. Every other time I've seen one I've stopped. Well today something changed. I was at a weird stop light that basically gives way for traffic from a club. I'll admit, I wasn't paying very close attention today because I had a lot on my mind and a lot that needed to be done. I just knew that I was looking at the light and it turned green. I was getting ready to go when a car passed by in front of me and honestly I didn't think much of it because plenty of people try to make it under a light even when it is pretty much a red light right as they pass under it. So I waited until the car passed and started to go before I realized that the next car wasn't stopping so I stopped. The car honked at me and I was appalled because I didn't know why she was honking at me when I had the green light. After she went, I went and as I was going I noticed the car after her kept going to and then I noticed it. The stupid tiny orange flag that signaled it was a funeral procession. I call it stupid because it was small (in my opinion)! I should've realized it right then and there when the first car went and then when she was going and then honked at me when I tried going. I don't know why my mind didn't put all the pieces together but it didn't and so I didn't realize it until that moment I looked back and saw that orange flag... After that I kept driving and I felt horrible. I had just dishonored the person they where driving for and pretty much gave them a big 'Fuck you'. I wanted to run home and bury myself in my bed and never come out again. Especially in this day and age where everyone has a phone and likes taking pictures even when they are behind the wheel. I keep thinking that any moment now my picture is going to be on the internet signalling me as a horrible person who won't wait for a funeral procession to pass. It was slightly busy so there were plenty of people to see me being a jackass too.. I can't even tell you why I didn't see it. I know I should've been paying close attention and usually I am. Today was just the one day I wasn't and I paid for it. Since I can't really say sorry to the person I just want to say sorry for being an idiot and not paying attention. Although now I fear that one day I'll run into this person and she'll go off on me >.>... That's my biggest fear honestly. I talked to some people about it and it made me feel slightly better to realize that they have made the same mistake at some point in their life but it still doesn't make me feel any better about it today. I know with time the memory will fade and become foggy but today I feel like a jerk. Thanks for reading and hopefully you don't think I'm a completely horrible person. I swear I'm actually pretty nice :( and I do pay attention to traffic. It's just one of those things where I can't really explain why I did what I did. So I guess to end this I want to ask all of you out there. What is one horrible and/or stupid thing you've done in your life? Don't have to answer this in your reply if you don't want to but it's just for other people who might want to get something off their chest as well.
