soft rock on the radio

So I know I posted like two hours ago, but I almost died today and I feel like I should write about it.
My street opens up onto a main road, so I was pulling out to make a lefthand turn. Both sides of the street were empty, except for a car in the left hand turn lane who was about to make a left off of the main road and onto my street, but he was pulled back far enough so that I could turn and he was taking too long so I pulled out into the street. As soon as I did, he pulled forward so that he was blocking me and I was stuck in the middle of the street. I was getting really annoyed with him until I looked to my left and saw two cars driving towards me. I started screaming at the guy in the car that was blocking me and he looked confused and finally moved and I pulled forward to finally turn just before I would have gotten t-boned in the face. 
The reason I'm saying this is because at the moment I looked to my left and saw a car going at least 40 mph coming for the drivers side, and I really thought I was going to get my neck broken at the very, very least, I realized that I made the right choice. 

Have a good night.
