A creature of habit, his own victim

Tom

His alarm woke him at seven o'clock, as it always did. He snoozed it for ten minutes, as he always did.

He drank his orange juice before brushing his teeth, as he always did. He put his pants on before his shirt, as he always did.

Lastly, he checked the appearance of his uniform in the mirror before leaving, as he always did.

Eleven people died today because of you Tom.

Eleven people died today because of you Tom. Boss was angry, Tom was scared.

Eleven people died today because of you Tom. Boss was angry, Tom was scared. Tom knew he wasn't to blame and yet sitting now in Boss's office he started feeling guilty.

Who knew being a routine traffic cop would end him up in a place like this?

It's not my fault Boss, I told you before, they don't listen to me. It's almost like I'm invisible, they don't notice me.

Boss was not having any of it.

Boss was not having any of it. Keeping those people safe was your only job, and you failed.

Boss was not having any of it. Keeping those people safe was your only job, and you failed. You're fired.

Tom left Boss's office not bothered about losing his job but rather distraught at what had caused this mess.

Tom left Boss's office not bothered about losing his job but rather distraught at what had caused this mess. He sees himself out there screaming with all his might "STOP! STOP!"

Tom left Boss's office not bothered about losing his job but rather distraught at what had caused this mess. He sees himself out there screaming with all his might "STOP! STOP!" Pleading with the drivers to have some sense, to follow his directions.

He wishes for a return to security, for everything to be Normal.

This is what goes through his mind as he steps out of the station, his hands shoved deep in his pockets.

The same place they were all day long.
