Friday dhamaka

One of the funniest things I have seen in a long while.

I am standing on the main road waiting for the company bus to come. A tempo with a driver and a young ‘cleaner’ come and park beside me. The driver gets down, says something to the ‘cleaner’ in Malayalam and vanishes somewhere. The ‘cleaner’ primps and preens as he spots me and another gal who has joined me. Then he decides that he should do something additional to impress. So he gets behind the wheel and reverses the tempo. He loses control and perhaps in panic keeps his legs on the accelerator. The tempo reverses in a wide arc in top speed mowing down some motorcycles, a culvert, a hoarding and still in top speed reverses into a house smashing the gate. All in a matter of a few seconds.

I collapse laughing.

What a way to start a Friday!!!!

Life is good!!

Damages: A few thousand rupees.
The look on the ‘cleaner's’ face: Priceless!!

Cupid needs practice!

Asterix said...

Hmm...There is something about Silverine, eh?

Sigh! So much pressure! There is so much pressure on us males. An average guy gets 5 seconds to impress a female well enough to allow the propagation of the species.

Some people just smile, others mow down motorcycles and house gates!

1)Oh, my lord (sarcastically)

2)Ayyo!

3)Hope no one was hurt.

P.S. I admit to feeling a little pity for the poor foolish cleaner. I hope his idiocy doesn't have strong consequences, employment-wise.

Inder said...

haha... may be the guy decided, "main shahrukh banna chahta hoon" and tried to pull off one of his monkey acts... :P

our world is full of such priceless things :D

Ajith said...

Either your looks are too good or the driver is too foolish..:) I think it'll be the latter case probably :)

alex said...

she causes disasters
and then she laughs at poor guys.

or maybe the guy was not wearing glasses, so he got syched at seeing u :P. so what is true ?

if only u had taken a snap of the face of the killi and posted it.

LI said...

Hmm . Poor guy , you should have asked him " How are you ?" in Malayalam after teh accident.It seems that few of the last posts are directed at Poor Indian Romeos . Let poor guys n Banagalore survive yaar! :)

lol...reminded me of an incident wen a class-mate of mine in college saw me at the bus-stop on the way and while waving hi..and saying good mornin banged right into a pole on the way...needless to say..it was an "OUCH" moment..neither of us ever mentioned it again! :O

Mosilager said...

So does the 'dhamaka' in the title refer to silverine and her friend or the accident itself ;)?

Jiby said...

one thing that scares me while driving is the sight of a beautiful gal on the road...i just cant let her go until she fades away from the rear view mirror too...thankfully nothing untoward has happened so far...touchwood!

naan said...

Maybe everybody is missing the point !!

What if the driver had asked him to reverse the tempo ?

tulipspeaks said...

Ganja Turtle said...

Rajesh Chavan said...

You have written in a beautifulway.

You are marvouleous.

Jagan said...

hmm..may be the the cleaner was so scared seeing u tht he just wanted to run away from that place ;-) ..

anyways , its nice to be optimistic that assume tht the cleaner was trying to impress u .

Jagan said...

too many 'mistaaks' in my comment ..but am giving u a chance to get even with me :-)

Sanjay said...

I hope you girls have taken full responsibility and flashed your mastercards for the damage that you inspired.

Creativity afterall has many ways of expressing itself!
