and I was inconvenienced

A young woman was killed on the tramline at Victoire today, and I was inconvenienced.

I noticed at Bordeaux 3 when the trams were stopping short of my destination.

She probably didn't notice anything at all.

She was 25 and apparently she was crossing the tramline while talking on the phone when the tram hit her.

I read of her death in a newsflash sent to my phone.

I was late for my meeting. I sent a text message to the person who was waiting for me.

And someone heard her voice stop on the end of the line.

I was late for my meeting, and thankful for the thousand times that I have escaped from danger.
