Rubbernecking on Steroids

Tonight I was heading home from work like any other day. All of a sudden, a big dump truck in front of us had its back tire explode, launching straight towards us. Luckily it didn’t have much air and landed for us to drive over. If it hit the windshield it definitely would have cracked it.

This event was startling to say the least. But the most interesting part was what happened directly afterwards. Almost like synchronized swimmers, immediately after this took place, my car and about 10 others put on their blinkers and pulled over to the side of the road. The drivers then immediately got out to inspect their cars. However, I think this was just an excuse to unleash some serious rubbernecking to see what the driver was up to.

I knew Indians liked their people watching, but this was quite the experience.
