Fuck drunk drivers.

by 5d via iPhone

Alright. I've been letting out a lot of personal confessions on here, but here's one that really bugs me. One I feel actual guilt about. Me and my partners were driving home one night after watching a movie. About halfway home we turn a corner and are passing this little retirement community. In the road is something limping. We swerve and avoid. About a fourth of a mile down, my friend turns around and we head back. It's a dark colored dog. Limping. Looks confused. We stop and put on our hazard lights. Another person stops behind us with hazard lights. Soon there is a line of people with hazards on. Not a long one, but enough that anyone coming from the other side should at least fucking slow down. I jump out of the car because my friend can't. The dog isn't in the road at this point, but runs around our car and between it and the one behind us. I'm trying to decide what to do. I move a little more into the yard to see the dog from a distance. I didn't want to spook it. It ran, but... almost in that playful "come catch me!" way that dogs do. A white car speeds by. BANG. The sound is so loud... They don't stop. They didn't even slow down. ... The woman behind me yells "they didn't even slow down!" She is shaken up. It takes me a while to process what happened. My friend goes over and checks the dog, who was flung to the other side of the road from the sheer force of the impact. The dog must have been killed on impact. We call animal control or whoever it was to come and pick up the dog. We think it had already been hit once by how it was acting. We get home. I fall into my friend's arms and just bawl. I wanted to save the dog. To get it help. I don't know I could do anything, it had already gotten close to the road by the time I got out of the car. ... Don't drink and drive. Don't speed too fast at night. There are animals in the road. Someone might abandon a dog at night so they're not caught. You might hit it. And if there is a line of people with hazard lights, really slow down. There might be a good reason. I'm sorry, doggie. I did my best. But I still feel guilty.
