Default My Girlfriend doesn't know I'm here

There's a couple of things that piss her off.

One, is that my idea of kicking back after a hard day of work is controller in hand, eyes on television set, 22 men chasing one round object. That's down time if I'm home.

Her other gripe is that I don't enjoy going to places as much as I enjoy getting there.

And that...

Is why I'm here.

Hey!

I'm Harsh. I work in advertising. I write copy. And while doing that takes most of my physical time, in between talkdowns from my boss, absurd briefs from client servicing and meals, of course, I'm also a foodie, I have one thing on my mind...

Cars.

Also a voracious reader. Outdoorsy. And love most team sports; football being the pick of them.

People though have always thought of me as that nutter who goes to car showrooms just to window shop, or leafs through a brochure over and over. Basically, just plain weird.

Which is why it's great to be with you lot, that way I don't stick out so much.

LOL

Cheers,

Harsh.

Very well put up.

I must say one of the best creative write ups I have ever come across. I thoroughly enjoyed your intro.

Bit of free advice, now that you are member just make sure you don't forget her completely

Isn't that so wonderful ?

Visiting car showrooms, checking out the cars, the new car smell, staring at the engine compartment and taking it all in, peeking under the car, visiting the service bay, enjoying the smell of vehicle grease, the wonderful sounds of tools clanking, going through the list of spares and their ASSY codes, learning quite a lot things.... i could go on and on!

When i give my i20 for service here at Kochi, i make sure it is a weekend so that me and my 3 year old son could go in and keep on staring at the work that is happening. It is a treat for us!

Once again, Warm welcome to the forum!

Thank you, guys!
I really feel welcome with this sort of reception!
And that is sage advice, DragonHawk.

Hey MH01BK0676, welcome aboard!


You're a smart man, Harsh (if that is really your name).

I bet MH01BK0676 isn't even your car. And you're not from Mumbai either...


Your secret is safe with us, and don't worry, your girlfriend will never find you here.


Cheers,
R

Rehaan, after reading your post, a confession is in order.

You're spot on.

MH01BK0676 isn't my car.

It's my dad's.

Funny story. When I was selecting a username, I typed his registration number by mistake. My car's actually MH01BK0675. It could happen to anyone, right?

Does anyone know how I can smooth this out? Is there a possibility for user name change? Who should I be writing to?

Unfortunately, you can't.

You can smoothen this out by creating another ID and NOT use this ID.

Using two ID's is banned!

Just joking.

You can't do anything now.

Welcome aboard, Harsh. So you picked up a GT TDI eh? Suits you perfectly I'd say, from what I know of you. Do take a moment to go through forum rules, and enjoy your stay!
