The sad thing, that it’s my own car.
Am a good driver (that’s what my friends say), am not a crazy maniac who thinks he’s in a video game, am not a slow driver either, i take really good care when crossing lanes, i always put my seat belt one (many people find this a VERY weird behavior in Cairo), and i always use my mirrors.
Also, i don’t mind AT ALL!!!! that my car gets damaged if am in ANY WAY responsible for it.
Its the third time now, my car got hit again…and i swear to God i was just driving STRAIGHT ahead on a speed like 40KMPH (i was driving on Nasr Road heading to Maadi at 9:00am you must know it’s very crowded that time, i can’t speed more than that)
The hit was not really strong, specially that we’re moving slowly and THERE IS traffic (why the HELL would someone take a 3′orza in a place like this!) We stopped a few meters later, the guy came down, everyone is ok, we checked our cars, mine is scratched from the side and has blue painting from his car all over my right side of the car.
My front right passenger door is not opening smoothly.
I was starting to shout (like usual, when my car gets hit), then am surprised the guy is actually saying: “SORRY, My mistake”, at first i couldn’t believe my ears when i heard it and i go like: “are you still sleeping?what the hell is sorry going to do?” then he said sorry again, and i really calmed down, i told him it’s ok, nothing serious happened, he apologized again and we left.
So, what’s the morale of the story, you ask me? Well, he’s a bad driver or he was sleeping or whatever reason he done that stupid 3′orza, it’s ok, it happens (at least to me all the time), but he apologized, which was all i wanted, he admitted of being wrong, so i respect the guy, and that’s the only reason why i didn’t $*it on his face.
Although, am still FLAMING WITH ANGER for my car, and that i need to pay more to fix it, specially that IT IS NOT MY MISTAKE!!! AND THAT ITS NOT THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENS TO ME!!!WHY MEEEEE PLEASE LET IT NOT BE ME AGAIN!!!!
I hate those scratches in my car, i suffered a lot to get it, so it really hurts me bad when something happens to it, it’s like me being hit, not the car.
If you don’t know, i had 2 hits before:
- 1st day of Ramadan, going to Maadi in the morning, (nazlet el ma3adi men 3al autostrad), an woman in her early 50′s in a Lada, decided to stop down the hill (3al manzal) to ask for directions, if you know that area, you will know it barely fit 2 cars, specially that there are 2 separate ways just before it, so it’s a mess already, so the car behind her (a Jeep Cherokee) hits her from the back, then me, behin the Jeep, ended up hitting the Jeep from the back.
Offcourse, nothing happens to the Lada, or to the Jeep, but off course, my car is wrecked, my front light is broken and “الكبوت” is wrecked. As usual, no apology, nothing is said, the woman just left me in my misery.
- A few months earlier, i have the car parked in Salah Salem, asking for directions ,the Flasher is on, my parents are in the car, to find a Ramsees Microbus, hitting the car from behind on full speed (my parents are inside!), and taking the car all the way up on the pavement,
I ran like crazy to check on my parents, they are ok, just some injuries, my car is totally damaged, hundreds of people grouped around us, each one trying to say his 2 cents, the driver come out of his microbus, we started to shout at each other, am in a very bad mood, i insult him, some people grabbing me from the back and want to beat me(????!!!!! DOHHHH ) it appears that they are his friends from the neighborhood (i was near the place they stop), they try to engage with me in a fight, next thing i know the guy drove like hell with his metal giant monster, everyone left saying to me “عوضك على الله” – god will replace it for you- and i ended up paying 13,500LE to fix my car.
Oh, i forgot to mention, that someone followed him and got me the number (thank you dude i don’t know who got me the number), and i made a report in the police station, but nothing (off course, as expected) happened, even though i bribed them all!!!! i paid like 150LE for the officers and they promised they would help getting my revenge, but looks like it wasn’t enough.
