So I was at my local speedway gas station today. I was out for a drive and decide to stop and get a slurpee. There was a woman at the slurpee machine filling lots of drinks. She had two kids with her. She asked if I wanted to use the machine and I told her no I'm not in a hurry. The lady was front of me in line and she told the clerk she had 7 slurpee's. I paid shortly after her and walked out.
So tonight I'm checking the nightly news as usually and there's a story about a woman and 7 kids involved in a roll over accident. It was right down the road from the gas station. I went the opposite direction. I guess the SUV rolled over 3 times and all of them were taken to the hospital.
I just wonder if maybe I had used the machine when she offered that maybe the accident wouldn't have happened. Maybe I would have held her up long enough for the event not to have occurred. I would have been in line first?
It's just messed up.

Honestly, my crass comment aside. I don't get it. So many variables in life. The assumption that you had any roll in this outcome could honestly be due more to a self centric view than anything else. I certainly wouldn't harbor any sort of responsibility from it.
