Default My first major accident...!

well, at last, it has happened. my very first major accident- a blemish on my clean record.
and guess what, the whole thing happened at 0 kmph. my baby was crushed under a tree this morning, which was being cut down by the stupid society guys. they didn't even have the courtesy to call me up and tell me that they were cutting up the tree, and my car could be in danger. they just went about their business, and did what they wanted to do. well, to be short, i'm totally devastated right now, and not in the best of moods. which is why i'm
not posting the entire summary of the proceedings or my feelings. i shall do so soon. the reason i'm posting right now is because i wanted to share my sorrow with my family. you see, my cars are like my flesh and blood, a part of my heart; this incident had tears running down my cheeks while i was gnashing my teeth.
call me immature or crazy, but i'm just a little too emotional about my cars and bikes. i've been through many family crisises and rampages through hospitals, without loosing my cool. but this.....

well, here are a few samples of today's massacre...





i shall post further details as soon as i finish with the society committee.

Thats bad. But if its of any help, its not your fault at all.
Infact calling it your accident is foolish.
Don't worry sh*t happens. Get it done.

If it helps to cheer you up, here is something to keep an eye on
Veyron in Mumbai

i took out the work estimate for my baby this afternoon; a whopping 27,000 bucks. and i ain't gonna pay a single penny; i'll make sure the society pays for it. but it's not just about the money, yaar....my innocent car got crushed...for no reason...i felt like a helpless father seeing his son get hit by a truck....

veyron, sad to know about the incident. but be sure to claim for it from your insurance company and let the society pay the difference amount. at the most you mite lose about 10 to 20% in depreciation as there is no damage to glass or any plastic part from the look of it.

cheer up, as lot of ur tbhpian friends would not like it.

till then

take care

They need to be MASSACRED!!

Two offences: Cutting down trees and damaging properties of residents.

U can take them to court anyday.

Metal parts replacement is 90% paid for by the Insurance.So, don't worry.

I understand ur feelings,bro. Even i've wept when my car crashed once.
And even,i've once have banged into a tree.

Ohh darn! Really sorry to hear about that veyron.. We all understand what one feels like when something bad happens to our babies. And that too because of no fault of yours. Very unfortunate.
