life isnt that bad

just when you think your having a bad day or when your down and out, just remember life isnt that bad. heres a story what happened on my way to work yesterday.

i was driving to work and got stuck in dead stop traffic. they shut the express way down and this is what happened.

a man picks up his friend in a cube truck to go to work. the friend was trying to talk to the driver and the driver was saying nothing and just looking straight ahead. he suddenly stops the van, pulls over to the median, jumps over to the other side of the e way and jumps in front of a semi truck
news didnt say why he did it but i couldnt imagine doing that or seeing your friend doing something like that.

i would hate to see this happen to anyone i know or even anyone i dont know so if your having problems, try and talk it out with someone who cares for you or anyone that will listen.

Well that's one way to off yourself. I feel worse for the driver of the semi, for having the image of some a-hole standing in front of him in the middle of the highway . Too many times people off themselves and involve innocents, or leave themselves in the dining room for the kids to find

There's just no reason to bring ANYBODY into your f-ed up situation IMO. If you're going to take yourself out, have the decency to do it far far away and just leave a note for a family member or something

As a truck driver, i ask please don't jump in front of me or steer your car into my lane. An 18yr old kid did that 2 yrs ago right by me. His girl friend just broke up with him and he steered right into a rolling parking lot. Both the car and semi burst into flames and it killed both the kid and the truck driver. The fire started so quick that people couldn't get to the driver who was screaming for help and ended up buring to death.

You see, that was the selfish prick that I'm talking about. It's all about them . Now the truck drivers family is without a father, grandfather, and friends without a friend

I have ZERO respect for people that off themselves, I say you're probably better off. I know the family wouldn't think the same but, how miserable would it be to live like that, where you don't feel your life has purpose
