Had an argument with a Bajaj Tempo driver outside Vishweshwaraiah Museum, Bangalore while parking. On returning home, found a full length scratch along the left side of my esteem.

Really sad - the amount of pent up destructive energy is crazy. Its amost not worth buying/maintaining new cars. My sympathies, dude.

It gives a perverse pleasure to many who adopt such ways. While in traffic scratching others cars, breaking the glass etc.,

Its out of jealousy and somewhat can be attributed to the culture and mentality of people in this part. It can be out of frustration too.

Many people who ride two wheelers also resort to such ways. Once in chennai two people were riding on a bike and the bike was leaning on to my car most of the times. So i was looking at those guys what were they doing. I saw that the guy who was driving was talking on a cell phone placed in his neck. The guy on the pillion told something to the guy riding and he stopped the bike in front of the car and shoutd at me. I asked why you are talking while driving.

He asked me if I am a cop and asked me to mind my business! I couldnt get involved in a fight as i was with my family. I was shocked by his attitude and arrogance. Shame on such rogues.

aaarrrrggggghhhhhhhh....... l
Last month after having dinner at the Leela and going home around one in the morning only to find out the next day on my way to the office some things missing from my car...
1) My palm top, 2) some CD's, 3) my Versace sun glasses and my fav box of mints... all missing.. i went back to the hotel and spoke to the security manager about it and he started demanding proof that i had actually carried all this in my car.. what could i say to him after that?? I also thought how stupid this guy is.. should i call him on my arrival and tell him what all is there in my car???
Now a days no matter which hotel i go i will park the car myself and in a safe place and keep the keys with me


Steer: can i borrow that..

Well it happens to everyone everywhere in India. A good idea to get away from all this would be to live in some other country or get a guard/security for ur car.

Or u could own a "tukkar fiat". No one would even want to come close to that thing

Default How should I read this?

I bought a Premier Padmini just to satisfy my road rage. If I find an erring guy who is bent on ruining my Palio GTX I get out my grandma Padmini the next day and rub sholders to my hearts content:. The only guys who do not care two hoots for my Pads is the state road transport buses. They really are the kings of the road. Bye and wear your seatbelts.

Note from Mod - Kindly refrain from excessive use of smileys

Is it that easy to steal alloys ? I always assumed they had a special tools to remove them compared to stock rims.
