Getting involved in cars accident is suck. Seriously, it only caused unnecessary problems in our life and I freakin' hate it. Lo untold, the car that I'm driving was banged from behind by another car when I was on my way to my uncle's place after the Samsung Galaxy Note II launch.
It was a rainy day, the road was wet and it was going down hill. I believe the lady driver was trying to make it before the traffic light turns red and wasn't able to break in time before hitting the back of the car that I'm driving. We settled everything quite fast, where the dad (who came afterwards) said that he will fix the damages for me and no police report was necessary.
I agreed to the terms after I consulted with my uncle whom the car that I'm driving belongs to. Now the part that causing SO MUCH tensions is the arrangement part of when can we send the car, where to meet up and stuff. Now, I SELDOM drive until lately, and I am not familiar with Cheras (the area where the accident took place).
So the dad was trying to tell me where is the workshop that owns by his friend, and I keep telling him I am not familiar with ANY of the area around unless its Subang or Keningau. I admit I don't know many places and also the name of most of the highway. That's why I have a GPS installed in my phone!
I told them, just give me the address or the name of the workshop and I will use the GPS to go there by myself. First of all, they don't have a name card. The friend who own the workshop told me he is uneducated, he didn't went to school (or he just having hard time keeping up with studies) and he doesn't know how to send the address to me.
So ended up we agreed to meet at one location and from there on, either one will bring me to the workshop. Now, it sounds easy but it was freakin' hard to arrange the time where everyone is available to meet up. Like WTFish man... I have time, you have no time. I have no time and the repairing is again delayed.
I don't think my uncle is any happy about the repairing is being delayed again and again. It's his precious car that he has work hard to paid it off. For him to allow me to even drive his car it is already a huge Oh My God THANK YOU from me and now this crap happens.
My dad was right. Don't ever borrow any stuff from anybody, if the unwanted happened, it will only caused problems for everyone and ended up everyone is unhappy.
I feel really bad about all this, and hopefully the car can be fix very very SOON! Uncle I'm really sorry about all this. I am truly grateful that you always let me drive your car and let me stay at your place.
Last but not least, study hard kids! Don't even think about dropping out from school or collage. Have a great weekdays people!
