thank you taxi man

24 Jul


on sunday – i had a nightmare of a day!

its was beyond horrendous! and when i explain the story – i don’t think works can explain how i felt and it may seem like i am some sort of drama queen!

some of you may know – well probably only Moody – that i had a minor car accident a few weeks back – despite the minor-ness of the accident – i had a broken mirror that needed to be fixed…

and along with insurance and all the drama – fixing the car took a few weeks and i was left carless..

so when the garage finally dropped the car off to me – they barely had any petrol in it… i had about 12km range left – and the nearest petrol station was a bit far.. i was at work but the parking situation under my work is so horrendous that I couldn’t find anywhere to park and decided to drive off on a hunt for a petrol pump…

so i drive to a newer area for me because i am told that there is a petrol pump there.. and i can see the signs for it – but somehow i can’t seem to get to it – everytime i try a cop sends me in another direction..

i finally end up parking my car outside the police station near the imaginary petrol pump – start bawling (as in crying like a baby) – i was just so frustrated – i had 2 km range.. and i had no idea what to do.. it was soo hot that i was sweating buckets within my first 2 minutes in the heat

luckily i found a taxi – who took me to a petrol pump… really helped me out with everything… was super duper nice.. filled the petrol in my car… all while giving me a pep talk and getting rid of all the annoying people we met…

he treated me like a daughter.. and really helped me calm down and relax.. and i would just like to say a big thank you to him… it helped me realise that there are so many good people in the world – and i hope i encounter many of them because you always end up learning a little something…

thank you mr. taxi man

    Am sorry you had a shitty day :( but here are a couple of tips you may use:

    The range is never accurate, its scary yes but its ok you wouldnt run out of petrol that easily.
    Since you have insurance, there is a service most insurance companies offer that you call a number incase of an emergency (ran out of petrol is included) and they come to you wherever you are. maybe you should check that out.
    Oh, if i were you and that happened to me, i would make sure to call the garage and give them some attitude for doing this!

      ur words are highly valuable but I did not give them shit
      the range still scares me! i’m just better at filling petrol!
      and i will find that number ;p

    How did you know you had only 2 km of range left? If you are getting it from the reading on the Fuel Range display, then usually you have around 20km more when the display says 0.

      I didn’t know that! the car did say 2km!

      Thanks for the info :)
