Smot Revir, You're dead wrong, but I can see that you won't be convinced of that so go ahead and think what you want. I know who I am, where I've been and what I've done, and my conscience is clear, and that's all that really matters. I'm outta here! Bye!

Thankfully, was jusrt a minor accident, but could have been worse. I am a smoker and if i dropped my lighter would never attempt to pick it up. People need to pay more attention on the road!
