Sense & Nonsense

Now driving is one thing and operating the machine is another. I have wrote a dozen posts on the crazy traffic world we live drive in.

Dear Driver,

You may have a 1000 CC car, but don’t think its a Ferrari. Even if you have a Ferrari (Thank God you don’t) don’t treat the public road as a race track.

No you can’t turn the curve like Schumacher. You have to stick to your lane.

There is no point in sending your kid to the school to teach him discipline, while on the way you cut two traffic red signals, drive opposite on a One-way and don’t wear a helmet. He learns fast you see.

I am not dumb or blind (atleast for now, if you honk that loud may be I would become deaf soon), I am waiting for the signal to turn green you crazy sonofagun. I am civilized you see (minus the bad language ).

No this is not a competition. Did you get a trophy when you quickly  took the parking spot, I was about to use? (when its evident from my indicator lights that I am about to use that spot?)

You say you graduated from college (or should I say passed out?) but the way you drive would soon pass you out ! I wonder if the educated drive this crazy, I don’t see a future where there is driving discipline.

Regards,

The guy who blocked your way when you wanted to jump the signal.

With that out of my head (not really) I can talk about other things.  The country is so bad that I get cheated by the guy who takes old newspaper as well. Cheating others/law is in our blood I guess.

So I am selling 4 months of newspaper to this old man near our apartment. He still use the spring scale for weighing paper, which to my knowledge is banned in this country. The scale showed 20 kg in total (he had to bundle the paper into two as it was heavy), while it was definitely more than 40Kg.

Okay now the morally right, compassionate people out there would start “He is a poor chap, why do you care about few kgs?. Anyway your objective is to get the paper out of your apartment, not to make money out of it”

Well yes, I don’t care about the money. I would be okay even if he pays only 1Re for a kg. But he could have not tampered with the scale.

It’s about the feeling – when you know you are being cheated !

We are experts in cheating others I wonder why we couldn’t cheat our way to freedom from the British? For the  freedom fight we tried the moral way?

I guess if we all had cars those days and we drove this crazy, the British would have left long back !  Gandhiji would not have to declare civil disobedience, because it would have been already that way.

In other news I get a lot of promotional smses (a lot around 20-30 of them everyday) thesedays, or ever since I moved to Airtel from Vodafone. Yes I know Vodafone folks would be laughing, but I am not moving back.  I sent an email to customer care with the list of 20 senders who spam me regularly. Airtel replied with 20 SMS stating that they would take care of the spam SMSes issue.

Gosh !
