A woman was driving late at night when she saw how another driver in front of her almost ran over a cat. The woman loved animals, but especially cats, and so she started chasing this man. She was furiously hooting the horn at him as she was driving behind and then next to him. The man got angry and stopped his car on the side of the road.

The woman felt no fear, although it was very late and not many people or cars were in the streets at that time. She stopped her car as well and got out of it. The man had already got out of his car and was coming towards her. He was yelling at her and wanted to know what was going on.

‘You wanted to ran over a cat!’ she furiously shouted at him.

‘What?’ said the man, completely surprised.

‘The cat. She was on the road and you tried to run over her.’

‘What the hell are you talking about? There was no cat on the road.’

‘Yes, there was!’

‘No there wasn’t! At least, I didn’t see any,’ he answered back. ‘You had to be dreaming!’

‘Dreaming!’ she was yelling at the top of her lungs. ‘I was not dreaming a bit. There was a cat and you wanted to kill her!’

‘You’re crazy, lady,’ said the man. ‘Look, I have not time for this,’ he said and waved her off with his hand. Then he turned and started walking to his car.

‘Neither do I!’ shouted the woman and ran to her car as well. She quickly got in and started the engine. She started driving away when after twenty or so metres she turned round and drove straight at the man.

He was still on the open road. As he was walking to his car, the woman ran over him at high speed.

The man died before the ambulance arrived.
