Have got the car today.
Hubby's driving mom's Volvo. he left about 7 this morning, ada OT. I went abt 8 but then got stuck in the most gadawful jam on the elevated highway. Ini adalah pesanan penaja:
GUYS PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE TO OTHER DRIVERS AND DON'T GET INTO AN ACCIDENT ON THE ELEVATED HIGHWAY! Sebab menyusahkan orang je. I tell you the tailback was about 2 miles.
I don't like that I have to drive. I must be the world's most mengada wife . I have joked that my husband is a STAR TREK fan..because he married a KLINGON. heheheh geddit?
When I drive, I drive fast. I am very impatient and am prone to cursing people, manouevering into other lanes and basically I am pretty reckless too. Maybe it's because the Serena is high . Plus it's really battered. hehehe. Anyway I will also be muttering all sorts of Surah under my breath praying that God protects me and that today I will not die. heheh
I learnt to drive when I was 24 I think. My aunt was a staff of JPJ therefore I passed. Hahahahaha. I don' t think money changed hands but the respect they had for her was enough to ensure that I would get a pass! Masa I learnt, I had to manouever the Pahang Bulatan..yowzah! The driver would pick me from Menara Maybank where I chambered and then make me drive in the traffic. And marah me for stuff like leaning against the headrest etc. Thank god for power steering now.
I did not drive though until I started working in KL and had to drive. All the time we were in the UK takyah nak worry kan, everything was near to us. the times I took my girlfriends out to malls out of town, I would scare the bejeebers out of them by saying stuff like "actually, I can't see all that well!" hehehe. My husband also took me to empty shopping car parks on weekends to let me practise my driving hehehe
Then when I came back, we had 2 cars. I took one and he the other but then macam tak best so he drove me. So it became our routine for the last 8 years that he would send me, and go to work, come and get me in the evening, and go home. Sorry , correction. he would send me, curse me for making him late, and then go to work, and then I would be cursing him for making ME wait, and then he'd pick me up and then we'd go home.
Pernah accident tak? So far, alhamdulillah tak da major ones. Tak taulah ni consider bongkak or what. Please god don't let me be in any accident because I can't remember what you do when you are in one. Ask for license? Minor ones ada:
1. langgar ATOS kat traffic light because i pressed the accelerator instead of the brakes
2. langgar my dad's gate because for some reason it had to be closed when I reversed.
3. langgar kerbau. (i can't or choose to be hazy about this incident)
Whatever it is, I enjoy our carpooling sessions more. It would be like this:
me- what i did today bla bla bla bla for the first 40 mins. Then- SO how was YOUR day?
hehehe. no lah, he would also be telling me stuff , All the medical and surgical stuff would just WHOOOSSSHHH fly over my head (heehhehe not really. I find his work very fascinating actually.He never discloses his patient did you know that. I never know when he's seing so and so's mom or what. )
I know he misses me and my chatterboxness in the mornings...who wouldn't ? heheheheheheheh!
Anyway I am taking the car today as I have a date...with my galpals from college. Sigh..independence..treasure it. It allows you to drive yourself in the middle of traffic and fight with other people and look for car park .
