A simpleton, road rage, loser

By Erwin dela Rosa

I feel bad.

It feels bad to be called a simpleton.\I just came from a barber session and grocery.

It was 6 P.M.

I was reversing the vehicle when this fast moving tricycle approaches.

I stopped to let him pass.

The tricycle stopped a feet after passing by me.

I saw from my side mirror that passengers were humping into his tricycle.
