stop…look…and listen to your instincts | September 29, 2010

I want to share an experience that I had this morning so you’ll all learn from it.

At around 11:45 this morning, I was driving along C5 (north bound) when I noticed a guy in motorcycle overtaking thru my right side.  At that point, nasa Kapitolyo fly-over na ako, makitid ang daan kaya nagulat ako when he suddenly appeared on my right side.  From then on, I noticed na hindi na sha lumalayo sakin.  He was either tailing me or driving alongside me on the right lane. I sped up, slowed down but I didn’t lose him.  That scared me a bit so I decided to stop. I signaled right (I’m in the middle lane kasi) and overtook him. When I reached the right most lane, I looked for a safe spot were I can park.  I made a full stop in front of Country Noodles/Lydia’s Lechon. Since the parking lot was full, nag-hazzard muna ako and waited.  When I looked at my rearview mirror, I saw him behind me, naka-tigil din, parang na-gulat sha na tumigil ako.  He then drove past me but stopped a few meters away, sa may Metrobank.  He didn’t move and stayed there for a few minutes all the while looking back at my car. At that point kinabahan na talaga ako, naisip lahat ng modus operandi na nakikita ko sa news at nababasa ko sa newspapers.  Since nakatigil na ako, I decided to really park and to stay inside the restaurant.  I stayed there, had lunch and, after almost an hour, finally mustered the courage to get out and drive again. 

Now that I have mulled over the incident, I realized that I my instincts may have been wrong.  Baka wala naman siyang balak na masama.  Sa totoo lang, I don’t really know what that guy’s intention was, I’m just glad that I was able to go home and that I’m safe.

  1. hi atty. arj!
    long time no comment ako dito sa blog mo. kumusta na?

    anyways, ok din ang ginawa mo at least nawala ang kaba mo. saka mas ok na yung nakakasiguro ka. pero sa ibang banda, baka nga maganda naman ang intention nya. baka gusto ka nya makilala. 🙂

  5. long time no read! alam mo kapag ang una mong instinct e takot, tama na yung ginawa mo. lalo pa nung tumigil din yung mokong. follow your instincts sa mga ganyang bagay, and be safe!
