Hit & Run
Age 18, Massachusetts, USA
A friend asked me to move the large cargo truck she rented. Even though I’d never driven one before, I took the keys.
And I backed up and dented a parked car. It didn’t belong to the people living in the houses nearby. So, I left.
Guilt plagued me. I’m sorry I didn’t leave a note for you. I went back to see if you were still parked in that spot, but you were gone. I hope you forgive me.
What did you learn?
I should have left a note. I still feel badly that I didn’t do the right thing.
