It is sad to think that peoples' lives are never eternal. As of the moment, we cannot find any way to prolong a person's age for decades or centuries. More so, it feels bad when we know about people whose lives ended recently, and parted for 'their second life', especially when we realise that they are worthy to live for more years.
Imagine your family member who just announced that he's about to leave life. How would you feel? How much pain would you carry? How will you maximise the remaining moments that you have with that person? All those questions would possibly pop in your mind.
How about knowing such situation from a random stranger? How would you react to it? Would you care less, or do something different like what this guy did in this story?
Let's find out if you would relate to it.
The user named westport76 shared his story as a taxi driver about an instance when he picked up a girl he defined as 'sweet' from a bar, one Wednesday evening.
That time, the night was too deep. The Redditor assumed that he picked her up at around 10pm.
She's really drunk but in a light mood. He respectfully asked the man to give her a quality time to roam around the city.
He expected that she'll throw up and he pulled up his cleaning kit and some tools useful for cleaning vomit easier. Apparently, the lady did not make an annoying mess. Rather, she just demonstrated an 'airplane' position, putting one of her arms outside the window.
She asked the driver if he ever thought about dying. Consequently, this driver responded in an affirmative way. 'Yeah--I guess go' was his response. Then, this lady confessed that she has a brain cancer, under a fatal stage never a single chemotherapy could even cure anymore.
She told the Uber driver that she came from a celebration with her friends at work, much like a going-away party. Her workmates knew that she's just accepted for a position abroad, but in reality, she'll fly up above the heavens, and will permanently stay there.
He was not able to contain his feelings so he turned off his Uber app instead, and he went home crying. If this happened to me, I realized that I would also feel the same thing. How about you? What are your thoughts? Share this with your friends.
