Brokeback Vehicle

8 June 2006 10:52

I take pride in managing to survive driving for 14 years without being involved in any accidents. Today that streak ended and it had to happen to my 6 month old car that has yet to reach its 10K mileage. A van carrying factory workers driven by an Indonesian (great, now they're a menace on our roads also) wham-bam-slammed into the rear end of my car as I was driving to work this morning. No injuries but funnily enough, my car was the only vehicle that got damaged. I did spot one or two drivers passing by taking pictures of the accident. If it doesn't make it into the reader submitted picture of the day in the local dailies, I hope that person wins big in the "empat nombor ekor" so that I can stake a claim to the money and use it to do the repairs.

But as much as I was annoyed with the driver of the van that rear-ended my car, I was even more pissed off at the police officers who handled my report. Despite the hardship I was already in, they still have the cheek to make some snide remarks about my predicament. Victims will continue being victims in this country it seems. I did contemplate a comeback about them being confined to doing deskjobs at the traffic division in the police force and not know that the word "rear" means "back" or "behind" (such is the mastery of English in our police force) but I figured if I do so, I might end up in the lock-up doing naked earsquats whilst picking up bars of soap. Let's not have anything else other than the rear of my car rear-ended for today, shall we?
