standing in the pouring rain checking out each others' cars, both parties became defensive, filling the air with highly unpleasant mood, throwing accusative words in each others' face. we felt minimal impact in the car, the result said otherwise. the moment i stood out of the car, i started calling numbers. though we are non-barbaric, backup n support are essential during time like these. mechanics n car towers came, hoping to earn a business or two. none succeeded. by-passers watched, amused. standing in the middle of the road last night, we were like animals trapped in a zoo. a time consuming procedures, but a whole new experience for me. leaving only to know mummy knew the driver's husband. he was my senior in primary school, only 3 years apart. the girl who threw harsh words at us just minutes ago, stood behind him looking ashamed, unable to look at her husband's ex-teacher in the eyes.
