Temperamental Old Man

While driving to work this morning, I saw a green Mercedes which looked rather familiar. I was trying to recall the significance of it when it suddenly hit me – it looked like that Mydin carpark car!

I didn’t blog about this when the incident happened - sometime in April or May this year. I actually witnessed something in Mydin USJ covered carpark that changed my perception of a naïve old man. I never would have thought that a small, innocent-looking pakcik would be so aggressive and so temperamental that he’d do what did that day.

I had just reverse-parked my car and was readying myself to go out when something caught my eye. A man in an old green Mercedes was trying to park his car. I was across these 2 Kancils which were parked in the row infront of me, and this man was on the other row which was facing (butt-to-butt) with these Kancils. Since I was facing the road, I could see what he was doing.

He struggled to park, that I could see. He reversed his car to get a better angle to go in but couldn’t. Then I think he realized that there was a shopping cart which was at the corner of his parking space. He got off his car, walked to the cart and literally PUSHED the cart away! The cart went astray and finally headed towards my car. I got off my car and somehow managed a “Hoiiii!”. Lucky for me the cart was stopped by that unlucky EZ850 silver-colored Kancil!

The fragile-looking pakcik got out of his car, locked it and walked towards the shops. He didn’t even bother to check the dented-Kancil. Haisshh! At first I stood there unmoved since I was in a state of shock! It was so jahat of him lah! Later when I checked, the Kancil had a pretty deep dent. Kesian this Kancil owner :(

So guys, if you happen to see this green E230 Mercedes driven by a pakcik with plate number BER7XX1, do stay away ya?

Hello Ibu, not sure you still remember me as the last time we crossed paths I was younger, ha ha.

There's always people like the pakcik you mentioned.
It happened here one day couple of years back....

This man had left his shopping cart behind after loading his groceries, and that cart rolled down the slight slope, hit a brand new BMW 535. Long scratch too.

That fellow chabuted! When he saw what happened.
I copied his car number, left a note on the front screen of the BMW....
To owner of BMW, check the supermarket security camera you will see how and who damaged your car".
I had noted the time. As well the car number.
That should teach some people they won't get away.

Did this twice too, left a note on a damaged car after guilty party da chabut.

You have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
