Close Call

That was close! The more I think about the more I think I have a guardian angel.
In short, I was coming home from work. The traffic heavy and to top it off it was raining lightly. After I waited at the light going out of the parking lot at work I headed home. Stereo on, singing badly to it to try to keep my mind off of the uncertainty of my dog, Copper's, health. All I remember seeing is me looking at the green light but not the vehicles in front of me which were stopped.
I noticed it and try to brake slowly, I fished tail and was able to stop. Evidently, I made it safely to the side of the road to calm down. No one stopped to see if I was alright.
I got my nerve up to drive home, stopping for a few seconds at a parking lot to check my car out. As I was getting out onto the main road my car wont get up to speed doing 30 mph and a strange smell wafted through the compartment. I immediately stopped. The person behind me didn't even blink an eye, nor did the 50 + other people plus a POLICE car passed. I sat there for about 30 minutes before I called my mom to come.
Only then did one person stopped. Someone from school. And then another person stopped after she left. After leaving the car rest for awhile my mom drove it home as I drove her car.
No problems at all.
I guess I scared my car some as well. Ha!
