What the hell!!!

Man, that is really one bad bad bad scene! If that moron service guy had half the brain of his working, he would have immediately engaged the hand brake, but then he never knew what it really was!

Hope you get the ride fixed as new soon.

GTO, as GD asked, did your driver vanish after this or what?

Really sorry to hear that, My heart bleads to see the condition of the door. First of all your driver needs to be shot.
Second he should have taken it to Auto Hanger itself to get the PUC.
Third you are to blame. Having such a awesome car, always do it yourself and never have a driver as the Merc is a driver's car.
Fourth: THis is the sad state of so called technical people on the road side who do not know a damn of the car.

Mera Bharat Mahan.

Make sure the guys foot the bill. I hope you will in future drive your own Merc. Sorry but no hard feelings.

pure horse crap, just cant imgine how much adreanalin pumped thru you at that moment!!!

sorry to see this, just a lesson that even the best known drivers can get negligent about our rides...!!! waiting for the bill GTO, are you going the insurance way? Am damm sure the bunk guy just cant afford 1.5 Lacs bill... he may offer to foot the bill - insurance claims + the next year NCB loss.

OUCH! That hurts! Utter carelessness!

Good that they have agreed to take the tab atleast. One way since the car is a merc they will show some respect to the owner, if it was poor ol swift or something they would have easily washed off their hands.

Ouch, Thats a very sad picture. I still fail to understand the idea of handing over the keys of such a costly car to an attendant.
What is your driver's take on that?
I am really eager to know whether the pump guys really pay for the damages or not (which will cross lakh).

Sad to hear that.
The service attender would have been bowled over when he sat in a your car.He would have thought he had his day but it turned out to be opposite.
And why did your driver give the keys to an attender

I wouldnt touch any car until and unless i am familiar with it.

Thats painful. Seeing a well maintained car with this sort of damage is too gory a sight. Well, wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.

It pains to see damage due to negligence. All of us know how one feels after our car has been through something like this.
Hope your Merc is on the road soon with the slightest of damages to your (in this case the pump owner's) pocket.
Go easy on your driver GTO.

Oops!! must have hurt.

Why did your driver give the keys to the service attendent for PUC. He should have parked it the way they wanted and just taken the printout from them.

That would have hurt bad...

I pity the attendant, that guy is going to be screwed up. And shop floor manager and other who ought to have ensured that proper precautions are in place, would keep working as usual.
