An Incident

"EAT SHIT!!" he screamed.
"Eat shit balls!" Darren replied.
He was SO pissed off, and so was I. Little did we know that it would create such commotion.

It was the 28th Oct, and I hadn't given my old friends a treat coz I was in hostel during my birthday.. So we'd gone to Dominoes for dinner that night.. After an amazing day and a good conversation over a good dinner, the five of us left Dominoes at 11pm.

We were standing over the tiles that lay over the drains across the road.. There was a 95 degree turn from Panjim church to Hotel Rajdhani, were a red car was driving at 60. We were busy talking about old days, and stood right at the corner very close to the pavement. The man had at least 4 metre space to turn.
Since the jerk was driving at 60, he felt insecure about turning, and honked at us loudly just when he was about 2 metres away from us.
"ASSHOLE!" I screamed. I was SO pissed off!!
His son, sitting on the front seat, a boy of maybe 14 screamed "eat shit" to us, and Darren replied in fury.

The man abruptly stopped with a jerk after taking the turn (n almost knocking us down) just to show how mad he was. he stepped out from the car, his wife sitting behind shouting how disrespectful we are (when her own son sat in the front seat shouting curses).

There was a HUGE argument over who was right n who was wrong between the five of us and three of them. We were not even standing on the middle of the road, and this ass started talking about how shameless we are being teens n hanging out LAAATE at night (11pm) on the road! That was none of his business, and ti was totally not related to this incident. The lady behind screamed out curses at us, and I screamed back. Darren me n Rahul were full-on arguing with the man, who wa sacting like such a dog. Ap n tapple stood behind watching.. Ap joined in a little later too.. We were SO furious! He did nto have to honk so loud and it was his mistake to drive at 60 on a 95 degree turn! X(

Soon many people started coming and a car n 2 bikes were stopped behind the man's car. There was chaos. Some asshole actually took their side! However, most of the people there were siding us coz they knew where we were standing - almost on the pavement! The man started talking about sending us to the cops, and darren told him to go ahead n that we could do the honours for him instead.

A neutral guy finally came n put us apart n told us to stop fighting and go home.. I wanted o make sure the stupid man knows what I'm talking about. I was so pissed my eyes began watering with anger.

Soon people realized it was pointless teaching the asshole and his stupid wife. The traffic cleared n the man left in about half hour.

Moral of the Story, says mum n dad, was:
1) It was their mistake
2) Pointless arguing with someone who doesn't want to listen
3) Losing your temper is losing control of yourself
4) We should've stood on the pavement, not coz it was wrong to stand close to it, but coz others can make mistakes.

I wish for once I could seriously put him, his wife and his bloody disrespectful son behind bars.
