Here is what I wrote in one of the official emails.

"For now, it seems to be a lag. These opportunities will definitely benefit you as they spool over a period of time and kick-in at the right time".

I am pretty sure that the person who received this email would have gone bonkers.

This happened a few months before

Me and my wife were out for shopping by about 7 PM. I had informed Airtel broadband for a connection since BSNL was not fast enough, the Airtel guy had come by afternoon and had installed the connection, wife decided the plans and rentals.

While driving I asked whether the work has been completed, she said yes, then

Me: Ethana BHP??? (how much BHP???)
Wife: Enna??? (What???)
Me: (Again) Ethana BHP??? (how much BHP???)
Wife: (irritated) Enna kekura??? (What are you asking????)

Only then I realized that instead of asking about MBPS I had been asking about BHP

Had a good laugh though wifey was staring at me

I have observed that BHP'ans are addicted to only during work days and work hours
On weekend there is hardly any forum activity, most of the activity is seen during work hours.

You wake up in the middle of night for drinking water or addressing nature's call and rather than attending to those, you end up surfing Team-BHP on your smart phone.

1) When you at your office desk, seriously typing a reply/post or reading an interesting thread, and your boss or wife calls.You answer the phone say "Hello, Can I call you after a while ? I am actually​ pretty busy right now ",hang up and continue typing your post or finish reading the thread.

2) When you open office e-mail on one window and Team-BHP on another window, first thing in the morning, after switching on your PC.

3) When you stop watching TV altogether and instead spend your evening time reading the interesting threads on Team-BHP.

4) When your wife snatches away your laptop/mobile phone so often and complain that you do not care for her and stopped showing any attention at all towards family

There are several incidents like

1. When I showed the accidents in india thread to my wife to make her realise the importance of seat belts.

2. When I booked my Thunderbird 350 just by going through some reviews here (Without even taking a test ride).

3. When I got rejected 5th time(Before approval, ofcourse) I actually thought of studying some english literature to enhance my writing skills.

4. On the 1st April, when I got approved, I thought of it to be a prank.




Keep Thumping Team-BHP !!

When someone sends you this video and instead of sharing it with your wife, you post it on team-bhp, knowing fully well that this is one place where a lot of members will identify a shade of their own personality in the worried husband.

OK guys,

So here's how it goes. I am a teenager (only fifteen) and decided to register for gear heads as well. It was only a one hour job to register, so I also decided to introduce myself the same day.

My username there is volkman, but here's exactly what I typed into the introduction thread.

Quote:
Hello everyone,
This is Ananth Iyer from Vadodara. I am 15 years old and a fellow car enthusiast. Apart from cars, I also have a passion for Commercial aircrafts, Programming and the likes. Spent 7 years in Bombay and another 5 in Ahmedabad before finally ending up here in Vadodara.

My dad owns a Volkswagen Jetta. I absolutely savour the 2.0 TDI and the 6 speed manual. There is a touch of german engineering to it that you can't ignore. I will be posting a detailed review on it very shortly. Don't miss the very end.

This is the list of cars we have owned till date:

- Opel Corsa 1.4 GSi

- Hyundai Verna CRDi

- Volkswagen Jetta 2014

Regards,
vishy


Another instance was in the school bus. There is this girl in my apartment building who seldom talks to me. Team bhp and cars mean that I have been treated as an alien. Her favourite car is a Porsche. I wanted to befriend her, but the fact that she didn't like cars meant that I never tried again.

So here I am discussing Porsche and Mustangs with my friend and trust me, she gives me those nasty/inquisitive stares that you don't expect from a girl. That was the worst instance and it only happened today. Still figuring out what it meant.

What it meant? Well, all I can say is that, some day you are also going to add a post to this thread (The value of Team-BHP). Telling us all that how TBHP helped you attain this goal.

Not what you thought it meant exactly.

Its just that making friends has become difficult after joining team bhp. I am treated like an alien. My friends say I will never have a girlfriend. So be it.

If your crush can pronounce 'porche' correctly, just never let har go away. As you are only 15 and probably in a school, so I'll advice you to focus on your studies but also remember there is more to the life than the books. And 'porche' pronouncing girl might be one of a kind.

P.S. Just on a lighter node. Dont take it otherwise.

Earlier my interest on cars used to look like this!

You know you are addicted to Team-BHP when ...-img_0214.jpg

You know you are addicted to Team-BHP when ...-img_0215.jpg

Now its solely Team Bhp!

When my marriage reception function looked like a mini Team Bhp Kolkata meet!

You know you are addicted to Team-BHP when ...-dsc_9992.jpg

Another example is when ever i take a pic of my car i make sure that the 'Live to Drive' or 'Got Bhp' sticker comes out prominent in the pic!

I slowly realized how much am addicted to Team Bhp now a days!

You know you're addicted when.... you're at the Mumbai TBHP meet, and you're checking the thread to see who's coming, who had cancelled last minute plans and you want to reply to people asking for a status update 😛
