Cheats

I am extremely happy that the shitty pay and park system that exists in Bangalore will be scrapped soon. Why? Not that I mind paying and parking but because the filthy scum who man the parking zones are out there just to loot you.

This isn't the first time we've had to fight with one of these parking shitheads, but this time was the worst. When we parked on one of the roads going left from Church Street yesterday evening, the time was something like 1935+ and there was no parking shithead to give a ticket. Fine, I'm not going to waste time waiting for one.

Cut & forward to 2110 and we're back in the car, there is a ticket under the wiper as usual that says 1840 on it. The parking shithead refused to accept that we weren't in the area till 1930 or later and wanted Rs 10. I didn't want to get ripped off by one of these guys yet again and raised my voice so high that the shithead finally said sorry, but he still wanted 10 bucks. And then comes in shithead no.2 into the picture and he says its ok saar, give the 10. And then shithead one goes to the level of swearing on his mom that he came and put the ticket @ 1840. Geeez. I told him to shoo (screaming at the top of my voice now), gave shithead no.2 5 bucks and said do what you want, I don't care. I'm not giving you one paisa extra and drove off.

In 21 years, I've never screamed at ANYONE the way I did at him yesterday. Never.

And then I notice that the ticket he's given me is invalid. Bloody hell. He got away with that.

PS : Just thinking about the incident makes me angry for some reason, so I'm putting it here and I'm done with it.

its horrible with the 2 wheeler parking guys too. They never have change to give you back...and when you come back to your bike, there will be another one balancing on the side of your bike with of course a hazaar scratches. And they are never to be seen when u struggle to get your vehicle out of the mess but magically appear when they need to collect their money.

Next time dont raise your voice - just ask for his name and the supervisor's number and then insist on paying the amount what is appropriate !

Thats the trick which always worked for me !

HTH.

I agree with aivalli But when you're pissed you NEED to vent too. So I guess it's a Catch 22 situation then?

Its ok dude, start shouting from now onwards, will help u alot;)

Not that u should shout everywhere, but helps u to know the hidden talent.
Next time, try hitting him, but only if u have a few of ur friends around.
PS: Friends in the sense, those who'll fight for u and not with u;)

Its ok da, cant help, should be in a position to teach them a lesson in a legal way...

I had 3 guys with me in the car, 2 of the guys were ex-army, one German and the other US and the US guy was 6'6". If I had hit the guy, I would have had some amazing backup :)

PS : You should have been there lol, we'd have both screamed at him!

Agreed. Its been sometime since I shouted at someone. I hv changed a lot now, esp. with the patience level. One of the many things after the ILP in Tvm;) Hope its for the good...

LOL
I would have agreed with you, but then I was with him the one time he blew his top off at someone... and that too for my mistake.

It was quite a sight...and prolly half of 4th block turned to watch who was shouting.

He can shout dude, and does his CD when shouting as well ;)

pussy cat

TOTALLY AGREED :D
