Savvy is involved in accident. Again. In the carpark. Again. Two spots away from the previous accident. Agaknye, memang that row is jinxed big time.
Previously, my PARKED car was hit by an international student who accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead of brake. He didn’t have any license with him. He was driving a car which was rent ‘illegally’. Means, one of the staff rented out his car, so the students have access to staff’s parking spaces. Itu orang aku dah sumpah dah dulu.
This morning, I was easing my way into the parking space, head first. Between two big cars. As per normal, mesti nak straighten the car right? I looked left and right, OK no car. I put my car in reverse, when suddenly, in a split second my reverse sensor beeped, followed by a loud horn and BANG!. Di pagi hari yang aman tu, mestilah tergamam. Confused pun ada. I turned, and saw a white wira. Ohh, berasap juga hatiku. Dari mana datangnya kereta bertuah ini. The husband of a new clerk in my department was driving. Grrrr. Bontot Savvy still intact. Tapi ada battlescar dgn lekuk. *Sekuat tuannya, i guess*. Tapi wira tu agak parah. The front passenger door is dented. One of the library staff who saw the incident, asked the man to parked his car at the side. Utk berbincang. Berbincang mincang. All i remember was, he went out of his car, and checked HIS damage ONLY. As if implying it was my fault. Pfft. And all he could say was – “macam mana ni kak?”. I raised an eyebrow and said – “macam mana? macam itu la! saya reverse slow.. dari mana awak datang?”
The man said – “Kita settle kemudian la. Saya pun dah lambat, nak g keje dulu. Apa2 bincang dengan isteri saya.” POINT 1 – he admitted he was in rush. takpe aku simpan dulu reason dia. I was in NO MOOD to dilly dally whatsoever. Deep inside, i felt this is not entirely my fault.
So, I went searching for witness. There were TWO. Both of them said he was speeding, in a carpark. Both of them saw I was reversing when the car dashed in. One of them also said, just pay him RM50 sudah. So, after lunch I talked to the wife. She said, her husband went to a workshop to assess the damage. *btw, workshop kawan dia.* Katanya, total in RM400. Crap. Ingat bawak BMW kapa sampai gitu. Terus cancel nak kasi wang ihsan RM50. THIS IS WAR MAN!
So, I consulted few male staffs, asking their opinion. Called up my hubby and dad. Ada lah script2 yang mereka beri to defend myself. Conclusion : AM NOT GOING TO PAY A SINGLE CENT. PAYING MEANS IT’S MY FAULT. AND WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR MY DAMAGE? BESIDES IT’S A PARKING LOT, AND U’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO SPEED. AND I WAS REVERSING. HOW FAST CAN I REVERSE?
Now waiting for her husband to fetch her. We’re going to berbincang schmincang. Wish me luck.
