I really messed up at work this week.
I wasn’t paying attention to the highway and the traffic signs and I hit someone with the work truck.
It had been a long day and I wasn’t exactly paying attention. I spent most of the day working on a commercial boiler problem. I was overheated and tired from being in the boiler room all day. I didn’t have much lunch. I ate a single taco from a little truck next to the place where I fixed the boiler. It tasted good, but it wasn’t very filling. After I was done with the commercial boiler repair, I immediately went to assist a coworker with a residential AC repair. When I finally finished my day, I was tired and ready to go home and sit in front of the tv for hours. I was unfortunately delayed, when I hit a pedestrian in the street. I was getting ready to turn right at the street light. I looked left to see if any cars were coming. I proceeded into the highway and that;s when I saw the pedestrian walking the opposite way. I never looked to the right, because no cars were coming from that direction. It was a silly mistake, but I broke the guy’s leg. They had to call an ambulance on the scene of the accident. The police were involved and I might even get a criminal violation for hitting the guy. I can only pray that my boss doesn’t fire me. It is actually my second moving violation in the past two months.
