hi travel writer, its an excellent write up no doubt, but if you happen to work late nights then i suggest you to sleep in office and not even think of going back home. Practically speaking.
take care, paddy.

What made me believe in your thread starting post is that you have posted in technical section that your car jerks, and in response to that I predicted that you short shift.
I could see that you are not well used to get the car rolling fast. But I request all not to put up these kind of experiences.
@mods : Change the topic to AprilFool Prank. We have a lot of visitors who wont care to read the entire thread and get negative conclusions on many things.

Good joke. I was completely fooled.
But such a situation is possible. I have suffered a car breakdown with my mobile battery dead as I did not notice the low charge before leaving office. Thankfully there was just enough battery power to make a call to the service center for a Tow Truck.

It was just a prank
My story was completely fictitious and any resemblence to any person living or dead and to any incident that might have actually happened is purely unintentional.
Lohithrao, Spitfire and others, please forgive me for the displeasure I caused. Please treat this as a joke, albeit ill-timed and ill-mannered, and let it pass.
All stories that are fictional, do stem from some real life incident. While the entire story I wrote was a big lie, the gun incident actually came from real life. I have faced this some 10 years back. My friend and I got into a drunken arguement with a couple of men way past midnight and those guys pulled out their pistols. They let us go only because we were lads immature and drunk. I am narrating this just to show that I am not all that insensitive.
I have decided to let such incidents pass without forgetting how one can get into a sticky situations without the slightest thought.
Apologies once again and also many thanks to people who liked what I wrote.
And, finally, in real life I steer away clear of unfamiliar territories (literally and virtually speaking). I prefer being safe to being sorry

I won't comment on the "taste" of your story, others have already done it. Just that, it brought back some sad memories to me from 2006! I just hope this never actually happens to anyone as the consequences could be far-reaching than that you explained in the end of your fiction!
Unfortunately, I know a similar real incident which spoilt the lives of several families! This happened to a friend of mine in Bangalore during Dec 2006, his name was Adhip Lahiri. He was 32 years, when he was mugged while returning from office one night and got killed in the process. His parents are in shambles now, his wife left the country unable to bear the pain and his relatives still cry in despair! Find the link below to read the actual incident:
Bengalooru | Bangalore: Techie Adhip Lahiri’s murder cracked; 2 held
Some fictions are too hard to handle!

Moreover you live in Delhi where you have high chance of getting into such trouble.

Good that the title has been changed. So, now no one can say that they were fooled. Phew!
But hey TravelWriter - what is noted here is your ability to write good stories! A talent there!
