See the Times of India's report ->
Truck drivers put condoms to other uses
Once I was travelling from my native to Bangalore in an overnight bus. The road was too bad in few places and one stone happend hit the diesel pipe of the bus and fuel got leacking.
This occured around 1am some where after Gonikoppal (Coorg Dist, KA) and next big town is Hunsur. We stopped and the cleaner was examining the leackage. We were so desperate to see the amount of diesel flowing out while raising the engine. The nearby workshop is only at Hunsur which is bit far off. That time one truck stoped near to our bus and asked whats the problem. After seing this leackage the truck driver gave one packet of condom to tie up the leackage till we can reach Hunsur.
Intersetingly, we could reach one near by 24/7 workshop without much hurdles..!!! Got replaced the faulty pipe and continued the journey.
If we didn't get such a help, we would be waiting till morning at the lonely place in the chilling night as that was the last bus for the day..!!!
And now after 14-16 months, happends to see this report in Times..!!
Share if any one has such experiences..!!
