An inattentive driver recently clipped my mirror while cutting in front of me recklessly, resulting in a needless hassle of going through insurance to get that fixed. It was due to this reason that I found myself on Tuesday morning talking to a car rental agency.
"Yes," the polite agent confirmed my insurance has paid for my rental. "Which car would you like, sir? I can get you another Altima, that's what you drive."
"Oh no." I rejected the proposal. "I am in the mood to try something else for a while."
After refusing a Ford Taurus and a Pontiac G6 I finally settled for the Impala. It was a newly redesigned car, I had heard some good stuff about it, and wanted to test it.
"Don't we all," A friend who overheard the conversation butted in.
"Well, trying something new." He replied. "We all need to do that sometimes. I wish I could say that about my marriage. Haha."
Living in Canada, one thing that I still find myself getting used to is the casual way some men joke about their wife's infidelity. Their wives aren't really unfaithful, the men just joke about it.
For example, another acquaintance one remarked how tall his kids were.
"It's good 'coz I'm not that tall." He reflected. "Maybe the postman was. Haha."
Or, once another friend got flowers from his wife sent to his workplace on his birthday: "My wife sent me flowers. Knowing my wife she probably got a discount because she ordered in bulk. Haha."
Again, followed by laughter from the general audience, and a very bemused moi. This is ofcourse so wrong according to our cultural point of view, but then again, so is talking in the washroom and they do it all the time too.
As for now, I am enjoying my new ride, but can't wait for my car to get back from the shop. Somethings I like to go steady with.
Well, I really got close with these predictions. I have decided I am NOT going to make any Final predictions.
So far, I always had ONE wrong prediction, while over 50% of the predictions were correct. Well, now, there is only ONE match left, and I don't want to jinx it either way. Yes, the World Cup final result DOES depend on this blog and what I post in it.
