En route sending my son to Quran class this afternoon, a boy (presumably in high school), on a motorbike ( presumably his parent's and without a license) rode out of his driveway and being as careless as they come, did not look left and right and rammed onto my car.
He should be thankful I hit the brakes on reflex or he'd have his whole face planted on my windshield
Now, wouldn't that be a hassle to scrape off?
So in result, the front bumper thingy of my car terkopak on one side.
The boy, who saw this, panicked and decided to flee the scene. Then, stupidly realizing that I stopped almost right in front of his house to inspect the damages, came back 3 minutes later in fear that I'd make a whole fuss and serang his mom or something.
I made my meanest face possible ( if that's possible la).
" Sorry la, kak"
Oh my God, I'm so not in the mood for drama right now, I replied
" Sorry la , kak. Memang salah saya"
Habis, dah terkopak ni macamana?
" Sorry la kak"
" Ko nasib baik sebab kita ni jiran je akak malas nak bising-bising. "
" Sorry la kak" . Macam parrot. Itu je skrip ko.
" Sekarang akak nak pegi bengkel, kalau kena banyak, siap la ko malam ni aku cari mak ko"
Wah, macam hantu pocong gitu nak cari orang malam-malam.
So because I was in a hurry to send my kid and then send the car to the workshop and then go back to the hospital for my oral surgery course, I left the boy without taking his number or name.
I know, most of you guys are probably slapping your foreheads by now.
I know for sure, if this were to happen to WW or any other person for that matter, you would have probably made the biggest racket until that boy peed in his pants. You would have made the boy pay on the spot and if he couldn't, you'd go to his house and tell on him to his mommy.
But it's different with me. I consider the fact that he's a neighbor ( he lives 2 lanes away). I cannot predict his parents' reaction to this but in a small town, a dispute with a neighbor is kinda embarrassing. It gets kinda awkward during kenduris and get togethers. I've seen it happen and it gets ugly.
So I decided to let it go. ( more forehead slapping).
I let go because I guess saya terlalu baik hati for my own good. I hate confrontations.
WW would say I'm a pushover.
Some would say I'm a sucker.
But Ah Ba, my favourite mechanic is wonderful. With a slight wave of his hand, he made his workers work wonders on my front bumper thingy and in 10 minutes, it was as if nothing happened. And he only charged me 15 bucks for it.
See, good things happen to good people..in a way.
Malam ni tak payahla jadi hantu dan cari orang. Not worth my time.
