...And thats how it's done.


During my Bangalore days, we used to hang out with friends at The Leela. Well…we are not the dining-at-The-Leela types. We go there for bowling. A glass of lemonade costs a hundred bucks at the bowling area, we'd painfully realized (after drinking it of course). Anyways, this place was a top favorite among us three couples.

One night, after bowling and subsequent roaming around the Leela, we dragged ourselves to the parking area. Thirty minutes to midnight…and thoughts of going to office the next day had nearly wiped out the weekend smiles from our faces. The parking area of Leela was somewhat the size of a football ground, but not a single spot was vacant. We reached our car…and were alarmed to find a highly modified and accessory laden sports car parked diagonally behind ours, rudely blocking any attempt to move our car. Beer bottles were also found strewn around that car.

We called the security, he called his supervisor, and they assumed dutiful expressions by reaching out to their wireless handsets. We went up to the reception and made a complaint to the heavily decorated female receptionists who could hardly move their faces, possibly due to fear of damaging the carefully applied makeup, and they in turn reported this to other blazer wearing-good-for- nothing- English speaking volunteers. An announcement was made (they claimed) with the number of the car at the pub and other places. Nothing really happened.

We were hungry. And its not like Leela was a place we could dine from. Home was miles away.

We then saw another couple driving their way at a snail's pace into the parking area, trying to find an empty space. As they saw us three angry ladies, with hands on our hips – eyes wide- lip movements which possibly suggested swearing, they politely enquired what the problem was.  We pointed at the sports car parked across ours and all three of us voiced our minds in an absolutely engaging chorus.  And the lady said, "If it was me, I would have released the air from the tires of this moron’s car".

And that’s  exactly what we did.

 For all the four tires.  And, a note to remember, right across the moron's windshield.
                                                                                                                                
And the feeling after that was done....PRICELESS.  :D

  13. You actually did that?!?!?! Like really?
    Poor guys those. They would have surely struggled with their drunken stupor and flat tires! (Can't help it my sympathy always goes towards drunk guys :P)

  14. Blunt: Yes we actually did that ! Like really . I also know that your sympathy would go to the drunk morons and not to the helpless female friends who got stuck at a parking lot in the middle of the night :(

  17. LOL, the Moron sure should remember to be more considerate of the pain that they levy upon others while choosing a more moronic parking spot.

    Did that lighten up the forthcoming weekdays? the feeling of triumph? :P

    Cheers,

  18. Blasphemous Aesthete : Exactly :D It not only lightened up weekdays...it found a place in my blog also !

  19. I have a question. You haven't mentioned how you got out of the spot finally. It would defeat the purpose if you let the air out of his tires and then he comes there to move his car to let you drive away. It was a good story, but I think it lets the reader down in the climax. Or am I the only curious one? :)

  20. Sunil: We got out of the spot by getting three other cars moved by their owners, and that too with gr8 difficulty. We wouldnt release air of tyres of the ONLY vehicle that can let us out of the spot :P
    It was the feeling after doing that which was important to me, rather than the climax and how we got out .. :) Thanks for being curious !

  21. Well well e do find such idiot drivers if it was me I would have picked all those beer bottles and put them in the car or on top of the car ..
    then as you were suggested take the air out and then held my key at one side and walked all the way to the end a Nice long scratch right in the middle ..
    Am sure this guy would never have tried it again .. and also I would have waited a bit farther to have a laugh at his expense ...

  27. Priceless it is....dont blame u 1 bit actually. A few months back my BIL faced the same problem...in this case some idiot had parked his hummer in such a way tht he took up 3 cars parking space in a very busy area. He & another guy who were eyeing the parking space without saying a word to eachother let out air from all 4 tires;-D

  28. Nancy: Pinnallathey !! Such guys needs to be given a share of our mind. You cant get away with anything if u own a hummer !
