Default White Car, White Umbrella?

Congrats on the purchase Sam!

White is classy, a good choice. I hope you got a white umbrella with the white car. It would look good.

Oh Wow! Drool, drool and more drool.

I love that Skoda. Am wordless over its beauty. That's a Superb colour choice.

He hesitates. He's questioning my sanity.
Boss, it has everything. Like everything.
The umbrella, it's there na?
Yes.
That was too funny.. a person buying 20 lakh car is like asking, do you offer free umbrella with the car .... Goood one.. I can think how surprised would be the dealer

Yay another great Yeti Blog.. oh wait this is an ownership thread :P

Come on Sam, we are waiting for the Superb ownership report.

@pawan - Guess which other car has provision for an umbrella in door? The RR Phantom Sam was not asking for a free Umbrella, he was confirming that the Superb has this feature.

Glad you went with the heart. Expected nothing less. Life is much more fun when you follow the heart.

All this talk about the Japanese being more reliable only matters if your entire focus is on maintenance and basically want a car to go from A to B (in other words, boring). When it comes to driver feedback, road holding and performance very few japs will ever match the europeans. Of course, this won't matter to Sam anyway.

Especially today.

Considering that she is not related to my better half, I can only come to the conclusion that all grandfathers drive a car of this colour.

I however, am no grandfather. Heck I'm not even a father!
Dude you are incredibly funny. I have read a lot of your blogs and posts. Your writing has a subtle humor like RK Narayanan or say a Chetan Bhagat's books!! If you can write like this, I am sure in person you would be a lot more fun.

I wish the Mods create a seperate section for your writings and dont allow people to comment in between your posts. Its a pain to search your posts by skipping past the rest.

What a read ! I wouldn't get so much of kick by sitting on a stinger missile with a refreshing drink in my hand.

Enjoy the car Yeti, Buss
