Have you ever ran over something with your vehicle and really feel bad?

Well my SIL has and shes more like...oh well it shouldn't have gotten in the way...(ruthless)
I know my dh is that way too it has never happened but I picture him saying this too :(


The other day I was driving down the feeder and I hit a beautiful butterfly :( it flew in my path.
This morning I backed up to drop the kids off to school only to come back and found a squashed frog in my driveway :(
One day my brother (lives in another state) ran over a turtle it was in the garage :(

I know it's part of life but for some strange reason I'm weird this way :/ but of course I move onjustlike
everything else.
Thanks for listening :/

  • I haven't hit anything yet *crosses fingers*. I would be in a puddle of tears for the rest of the day.

  • I had a bird run into the front of my car while I was driving down the road.

    I also ran over a kitten many years ago. Unfortunately it was dark and the kitten was all black.

    I always feel terrible when something like this occurs. I feel guilty like I should have been able to prevent it.

  • I've run over chipmunks and squirrels and for some reason, I always get an 'Oh shit, I hope nobody saw that' sort of guilt trip.

  • I ran over dh dog that he had for 10 years. Dh was cutting grass and asked me to move the cars. The dog was laying behind the wheel and I didn't know. I backed right over him. I still to this day don't know why he just layed there and didn't move when I cranked the car. I felt horrible about it though. He was a really good dog!

  • I swerve the car to not hit a wooly-worm in the road, so yeah, I definitely feel bad hitting anything.

  • I feel bad if I hit an animal too =( I have hit a bird, a rabbit, and a deer...I cried all three times. I have even stopped in the middle of the road to move a turtle out of the way so it wouldn't get run over...twice.

  • Yes, more than once.

    Answer by tasches at 12:14 PM on Nov. 15, 2011

  • Insects, not so much! The first animal I ever hit with my car was a squirrel and, YES, I cried! I've hit a couple of birds, too, and although I felt bad, I didn't cry.
