If you are a woman and still reading it, accept my apology well in advance. You folks don’t tend to listen, I know. Forgive me for saying so, though I am not a misogynist still I can’t forget the hair mounting episode that happened a few months ago. Let me take you back in time…
It was during those days, when I was looking for a job change and busy scheduling and attending interviews. My parents had some plan to go out of the town to attend a wedding, a day before my mom reminded me about my interview. She knew that I am into a good habit of getting ready at the eleventh hour. They had a midnight flight, after bidding them goodbye I dozed off again. I was at ease because I knew that my maid will ring the doorbell early in the morning and I will wake up on time.
But to my hard luck she didn’t turn up that day, somehow I woke up with a scream after a nightmare. I dreamt that i am stuck in a massive traffic jam and had picked up a fight with someone. The clock stuck eight and I jumped out of the bed as my interview was scheduled at 10am. Totally perplexed about how to begin my morning chores, I messed up the entire thing. It was all haywire; it was hard for me to understand what to do next. Brushing was all I could do. I had no idea where mom had kept my tie, my files, my bag etc. God knows what will happen to me today. I locked the door and ran out of my flat, struggling to knot the tie with holding my file in one hand, my shoe in other.
As soon as the lift opened, I saw the bombshell of our apartment, wearing a tee with “Guess” printed at front. I guessed it right hundred times but no prize till now. Anyways, she smiled at me and chuckled while I finished dressing up in the lift. After coming to the ground floor, while moving towards my car… I realized that I forgot the car keys. Rushed back to the lift but wasn’t fortunate enough, as it was going up. So took the stairs for the sixth floor.
It was already nine and I was getting terribly late, somehow after hitting the road I met with a huge traffic jam on the main road. No no I wasn’t dreaming this time but got scared as I had a similar nasty dream last night. As usual I could not understand the reason for this jam but it was there and growing. Can’t help it! I saw a Mercedes driven by a middle-aged lady, could not see her much but we had an eye contact through the looking glass.
Let me tell you that I have no good experience with women drivers. I simple don’t want to come on their way while driving. She was on her phone call till quite sometime (I was observing her activities) and after she finished talking, it was her make-up next, no doubt she must have spent a minimum of 30 minutes at home for make-up like all other women do, next was lighting up a cigarette followed by playing loud music on stereo. Her phone ranged again and she was busy taking when the traffic moved.
She didn’t realize it for some time, when I honked hard she came to back to her senses. No sooner did she start the car, it stopped with a jerk. God why we have woman drivers! By the time, I could move any further it was a red light stop. She saw me from the looking glass again; I had a blank expression on my face, which means as if I am silently asking her “what’s wrong with you”. I could hear the music from her car; I was prepared to honk her again if she doesn’t start on time. As soon as the light turned green, she starts off after sensing my frustration but could hardly moved an inch before she rammed her car with other due to rush. Again the traffic came to stand still. She had a heated exchange of dialogue with the driver of that car but the traffic police came and fined her.
My car was standing still there without moving an inch, what a terrible day it was. I was running late and was witnessing an entire melodramatic situation in middle of the road. Finally, I crossed the red light and was still following her. All of a sudden she applied the brakes, it was close shave as I was about to hit her car from back at a great speed. Why we have women drivers at all! The reason for her stop this time, as far as I could make out, was flat tyre. Before moving further, I said, “why don’t you join your driving classes again, a few lessons is all you need”. It was at this time we saw each other’s face.
When I reached the office for the interview, I was 30 minutes late already but to my good luck the director was not in. Thank god, it was a real sigh of relief. After waiting for an hour, the HR manager guided me inside the director’s cabin. I opened the door, and shocked to see the person inside……rest you can well make a guess… ya you got it right…
The following day, I was out for a long drive to forget the last day incident, suddenly a car overtook mine, this time I saw a girl driving with a graffiti “follow me” I took a U- Turn and came back home.
