The Aveo gets its cherry popped


Before your mouth even begins to mould itself to prepare for the ejection of the phrase “women drivers!”, this was not my fault. My indicators were on, clearly doing its blinkety-blink-blink-tock-tock-tock. I was in the turning-lane when suddenly the truck next to me inched menacingly-portentously closer to my side mirror, and looked just about ready to process me into tinned-saaleha. Admittedly chick-panicked, I swerved and climbed onto the pavement, scraped my left-front tyre and twisted the rim. Fortunately, the rest of the car escaped unscathed. And thus was my first Incident With Car.

Well you're lucky that you didn't become tinned Saaleha. Can't say whether it would have been any good. And like me need more tinned stuff in this already over processed world of ours ;)

Wel When I saw D Pic, Got To disagree With K-Man,1st Thing That Came To Mind Was "WomAn Drivers",

see?! now that's why women should not be let behind the wheel. i mean all that panickiness just waiting for a victim...dangerous.

gosh, any guy would have done the right thing: hooted at the truck, stopped the car in front of it, got out, ran up to the truck driver's window and screamed at him.
women drivers! get them off the road!
LOL!!!!

lol I agree, women make terrible drivers. It's cos they insist on wearing heels and driving which does not work well, and 2 when they find the need to talk to passengers, they tend to turn around to face them...taking the wheel with them. o ye the thems and theys. Err- I'm exempt btw...

but that's an ouchy one saaleha

pavement biters of the world unite. When i first got behind the wheel I did the same to avoid a dog. And that is the story I am going with

sorry to hear about your accident.. you weren't hurt and anything else can be repaired, so its not too bad, and at least you still have your car.. its been two months since my accident and still being fixed becuase christams was in the middle.. i hate it!
As for the "woman driver " comment: thats such a guy thing to say!

kimya said...

hello!

wOmEn are perfectly fine drivers!
i resent that comment! we can multitask, mosTLY while driving, doing a bit of make-up touchups, delicately balancing breakfast and a cellfone with a carefully pointed stilletto heel resting on them footrests that move about to suit ones comforts.. *sigh*

these odd scrambly things just haPpEn. ask my insurance consultant. :P

as long as ur good to go, saals..
heres wishing a speedy recovery to the Car.
