Vikas walked out of the office building. He was in a hurry to catch a bus home. He had to cross the service lane and the four lane road to reach the bus stop on the other side. Just then his phone rang. A land-line number. And he knew who it would be. He picked up the call and said, "Hello".

"Good Evening, Sir. My name is Neha, I'm calling from New Life Insurance Co. We have a new scheme which I think you would be interested in. It's very.."

"Look, I'm in a hurry. Could you call me back later?", Vikas said and cut the call.

He reached the office gate, and was about cross the service lane, when his phone rang again. He picked the call and said, "Hello, look I said I…", impatiently.

"Sir, please sir, it won’t take much of your time, sir. We found that you do not have any policies in your name. I think this scheme would be very apt for you. I.."

"Please", Vikas interrupted her. " I do not need any Insurance policies. So please stop calling me", Vikas said and pressed the red button hard.

"These people always find the perfect time to annoy people", he said to himself stepping onto the main road without looking at the truck coming towards him.

The driver hit the brake as hard as he could. The truck came to a screeching halt. Vikas was thrown a good 6 to 7 feet away. Everything went dizzy for a while. But he soon regained his consciousness and got up on his feet. He was about to shout at the driver and give a piece of his mind, when he realised that it was actually he who was in the wrong. He then saw people moving towards him. He signalled with his hand that he was ok.

"Maybe I should get Insured after all", he said and started crossing the road, when he saw a car speeding towards him. He signalled the car to slow down. But it kept accelerating. When the car came almost near him, he stood there stunned, motionless and exclaimed, "What the Effff", and the car passed right through him.

At a little distance he saw the traffic police clearing the crowd away from the truck, where his body lay, crushed under the wheels.
