I was asked to collect a piece of cheque from a customer. I 'hate' to go over to this customer's office because the premises is gated. Everytime, I will have to pray and hope the gate is open so I can drive straight in. The gate I'm referring to is like those railway gate which dropped down from the top to the bottom. Some call it barred gate? I'm not too sure of the name. Normally it is red with white stripes on it.
I can just park my car at the open space provided and walk all the way into the office. I don't mind walking. But the main problem is, there were 3 BLACK DOGS ! I'm afraid of dogs, what more BLACK color type. They looked fierce.
So by hooked or by crooked I need to drive in so I can avoid the dogs. I was delighted when I noticed the barred gate was slightly slanted (with one side higher than the other). I was too confidence that my car can pass through that small gap and thus, step on the accelerator.
* BANG * That's the prize I got from entering with poor judgement. SIGH !
The roof of my car was 'decorated' and I need to repaint the whole roof and that cost me RM280 !
Not only that. The radio antenna which was attached at the back of the car roof was broken and I have yet to find a replacement for that. Wonder how much will that cost me.
I was lucky hubby did not get angry over this matter. My in-laws did not even nagged at me.
Come to think of it, it is more of my stupidity that cost me an expensive lesson. I guess, I need to pray harder next time when I'm asked to visit this customer !
