Somebody knocked my car from the back. It was at the traffic light near my house. As the light turned green, I was supposed to make a U-turn, and I started to move slowly and suddenly BANG!!!
It took me a while to figure out what has just happened. “Oh shit, aku kene langgar, yeh?”
So I went down and headed to the knocker’s window. Everybody started to honk, naturally because we were blocking the way as the traffic light has already turned green.
The man in the car said “You make the U-turn first and I’ll meet you by the road side”
I didn’t know whether or not to trust him. I got back into my car and took a glance at the plate number, in case he runs away, I can lodge a police report.
So after the U-turn, I stopped by the road side, and he followed. I ACTUALLY GOT OUT FROM MY CAR. Hmm.. Wasn’t there any warnings about not to get down from your car if you ever get knocked at night?
Yes, there was, but I forgot. OK, I forgot!
But the guy seemed nice although he sounded and smelt drunk. It was dark, so we couldn’t really see if my car was dented. We couldn’t really see anything in fact. He gave me his business card and told me to call him if I discover any damage to the car the next morning.
Luckily I didn’t get robbed. Alhamdulillah.. I remember a friend of mine once told me that a guy knocked her car from the back and as they stopped by the road side to see the damage to the car, suddenly a group of ‘mat rempit’ came over, conveniently wanted to check out what’s happening. Apparently, they are associated with the first guy who purposely banged her car, and they robbed her.
Alhamdulillah.. I was lucky. Lucky that I didn’t get robbed as well as lucky that the car wasn’t damage at all.
Before the guy left, he said “Please call me if you need to go and repair your car. But please do it properly ok (in a ways he wants to tell me not to cheat him)? Otherwise we can be family friend. Hahahaha”.
He left me there feeling puzzled. “Apa kene mengena repair kereta dengan being family friend?”
