Hey all, this is a short experience that i faced that made me a believer of intuitions. Just thought i would share it with you all.
I live in dubai, the land of fast cars and crazy drivers. I do fall into that category but trying to be more responsible these days. I used to race around on empty streets and test out my car limits.
One day there were three sports car racing on a highway and i joined them in that excitement. In about 2 minutes, i was right behind the 1st Car when Something told me to pull over to the side.
I slowed down, let the other two cars pass and pulled over to the side. As soon as I did, i heard a loud screech and a crash noise. I drove a little ahead to find the 1st car and the one behind piled up on the sidewalk. Apparently the 1st driver braked really hard to avoid hitting a cat and caused the other car behind him to crash straight onto him.
Luckily both drivers survived without any major injuries. But I keep thinking, if it weren't for that voice that said 'Pull Over', it could have been me piled up on the side. This made me a firm believer to trust my gut instinct no matter what the consequence.
