Two days back, a biker banged in to my car from behind. Yesterday he paid me Rs.2500. The showroom estimated Rs.4700 to paint the bumper and rear wheel arch.

Today when I went to showroom to drop my car, the customer attendant wanted to try rubbing wax polish over the scratches. Amazing, most of them are gone. And the rest are invisible unless focussed well. Cost: Rs.30 for the person who rubbed wax.

He hit a scooterist and Scooterist took about 2000 bucks from my pal as my pal didnt want to get into Police case and all .... Damage to scooter worth around 300 bucks ... and immediately after the scooterist left after collecting money , a guy standing on the road said that we shud have proceeded with the Police case as the scooterist didnt have a License and other papers ...
