Thanks for waiting, Honey! You can press the start button now! Huh?
This is a really funny movie!
Hey! Why didn’t you wait for me? I asked you to press the stop button! I was only in the bathroom for a minute!
I’m sorry! I couldn’t wait.
But I recorded this movie!
Don’t worry, just use the rewind button! You can go back.
Life doesn’t have a rewind button.
What are you talking about?
You can’t rewind your life. There is no way to go back to the past. That is why you have to take it easy and sometimes stop. Do you get it?
Darling, are you feeling okay? Do you have a fever?
No, I’m perfectly fine! You see, on my way to work today, something happened…
You sir, in the white car, stop please!
Is that police officer talking to me? I didn’t break any rules.
Hello, Officer. I didn’t do anything!
That is the problem! You had to do something at that road back there, but you didn’t.
Did you see the stop sign?
No, Officer … But you see, I don’t usually take this road!
l’m afraid that isn’t a good reason. Let me see your driver’s license.
My wife is going to be so angry … Officer, l’m in a hurry to get to my office. Can you do this quickly?
It will only take a minute. Just take a deep breath and calm down.
You were lucky this time. You didn’t cause an accident today. But if a bicycle or someone were crossing the road…
You know, I think these stop signs are not just about traffic rules.
What do you mean?
I think they’re telling us to pay more attention to our lives!
