Sunday Night Experience....was so exciting !!
Now that i have started working for the first 5 days in a week,the only way of having fun is to go on a outing at least on the weekends. I along with 3 more friends(Ajay,Ashok & Krishna) planned to go and watch F1-ITALIAN GRAND PRIX on the giant screen @ a TOYOTA showroom which is 15miles away from my place.TOYOTA & PANASONIC sponsor this event in the METROS. I have registered online for the event expecting there would be a bash with all the F1 crazy fans out there!
Excited and i was counting hours(literally MINS also). Forgot to mention the new entrant here... i have purchased a used bike 4 days back.I also gave it for servicing expecting that the mechanic will renovate the bike and hands-over to me next day.But he kept the bike saying there that there is some big repair. He took 3 full days... not a hour less,not a hour more. & along with the bike he also gave me a BILL...which killed me!!It took my breath away and then i repented for buying the used bike!!
Here comes SUNDAY(the FUNDAY)...& the wait is finally over.All set to reach the venue.Ashok and krishna joined us directly at the venue.Then we went in and saw hardly two dozens of ppl. Also noticed that their energy levels are so low that they cant be F1 fans even if they really wanted to be!! and my guess was spot on. They all(except a couple of them) turned out to be novice for this famous sport.Never mind!! We four went & as soon as we stepped we realized that the event is not well organized as we have expected it to be.Adjusting to the environment we went ahead and gave a look at each of the four games they have held.Believe me those sports were good for the age group of under 11 guys...no for 22+. A zig-saw puzzle,A video game on racing,A remote controlled dual car racing and some other crap. In fact all the games were CRAP.The only way of entertainment out there were those four TOYOTA girls in RED skirts!! WOW!! muaaaaaaaaah!! and not to forget the PANASONIC PLASMA TV they placed there to watch the F1 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX LIVE which was dominated by Mclarens. ALONSO won( :( KIMI was third....heart break for we FERRARI fans!).
we stayed back as they announced that there are many goodies to be won in the F1 QUIZ.After a while a quiz master dressed in the official toyota F1 dress came out with cards in his hands.Asked few questions, most of them are easy.We were able to crack almost 70% of them.We also won 5 gifts. want to know what ?? PEN,KEY CHAIN & TOYOTA LABELS!! huh...so disgusting. We traveled for 15miles and came here and this is what they gave us :((
Then came out of the venue and saw that there was a heavy pour of rain in that short stint of 2hrs.We had some stuff in the near by restaurant and thought of leaving from there.
Then the real fun started... (DON'T MISS THIS)
I tried to start my new(old)bike,but it was already drowned in rain. It gave us a lot of trouble.After 20mins of hardwork kicking it hard(by AJAY) and cleaning the SPARK PLUG(by me) and continous support by the spectators(ASHOK & KRISHNA) we were finally able to start it.THANK GOD!! we thought now we can reach home safely.We dropped ashok on the way and we both started moving to our places(ajay was with me).We hardly moved from the place where we left Ashok,then we realised that my bike is punctured!! WHAT THE HELL...it was 8.30 PM and it was raining.F**K......it was a highway and we cant even find a single shop(forget about mechanic shop...we didnot even find a kirana shop!).
Helpless situation...all that we both can do is laugh at one another for a while.We have gone mad for a while laughing..laughing..laughing(coz... we cant CRY)!! We moved on from there giving my bike a push for 3 long kms. Then we found a maruti showroom.We left our bike infront of it and asked the security guard to guard my bike for that night!! Then came a phone call from CHANDU(he is a close friend of we both..he stays near my home).He gave us the most shocking news of the day... "FLYOVER IN PUNJAGUTTA HAS COLLAPSED....15Ppl DEAD!!" It took our breath away once again.
We cant help that....we moved on. Took an auto and reached home safely by 10pm! No power allover because of heavy downpour.We have decided that we both are going to collect my bike(if it is still available at the place where we left!!) early in the morning.
It was 8am.We started at my place...this time we took AJAY'S bike!! Reached the spot at 8.30am.Saw my bike still there!! HURRRAAAAAAAAAAY!! THANKED the security guard and gave him few bucks for taking care of my NEW(OLD) bike.Then again pushed it till the puncture shop. Now another shock! the mechanic says that tyre is torn and u need to replace it with a new one!! costs around 800 bucks.Kya kare... chalo.again in search of a tyre shop.So early in the morning....no moron will open the shops.but still the search was on...we searched all over 3sq.kms but in vain.Came back to the mechanic shop.....now he says that he has got a used tyre and he will replace mine with that!! kutte,kameene...tu ye baat pehle kyun nahi bataya. sara jagah ghoom aaye aur tu ab bataraha hai?? (this was inside my heart... i cant dare to say him directly.) No option left... time to go to office.. so compromised and got the old tyre for my old bike and left the place suspecting this tyre also.
Finally reached the office a couple of hours late!! :((
This is not the first time I have faced such weird situation! Already twice experienced in just around two months.But what makes this one more special is that i need to leave my bike on the highway!!
THANKS FOR SPENDING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME ON THIS READING THIS CRAP..... SORRY FOR PENNING DOWN MY WEIRD EXPERIENCES HERE AND WASTING UR TIME.THE IDEA WAS TO EDUCATE U (so that u will be in a better position to handle if it happens to u tomorrow!!!! ) :-p
