Caption,

A small decision can have big consequences.

Imagine that you are walking down the street and suddenly stooping to tie a loose shoelace.

Behind you comes a man walking eagerly with a boiling coffee in his hand, he does not realize that you are crouched there, he bumps into you, the coffee spills on his hand, it’s burning and he has to go to the emergency room to be cured.

The coffee lord is a pilot and by accident can’t make it to the flight that I had programmed.
