Well I recently turned 18 and along with the fact that I have a choice to choose which person loots my constituency for the next 5 years, I started with driving lessons. Now as a kid,I always made fun of Learners, making the L sign on my forehead as they nervously drove by,shouting “Loser Loser”(before you let your imagination run,I did this when I was 6,not 16.Well except that once )
But the biggest shock that hits you when you get behind those wheels,is the quality of drivers on our roads.It’s as if the traffic rules are like India’s football team i.e. existent and working on paper only. Even among this wide set of douchebags, I bring to you 5 of the biggest idiots you’re bound to find on India’s roads:
1.The sabzi buying aunty
She’s every driver’s nightmare. The typical Indian aunty who can scare the wits out of anyone anywhere and the biggest enemy of vegetable vendors. She can be found strolling on the middle of SV road(near fruit and vegetable markets mostly) with 3 bags of purchases and 4 bags of the free dhania she siphoned off from a poor soul whom she ironically calls Bhaiyaji. Oh! How can I forget? She loves doing this when the signal is green because crossing the street when the signal is red, is too mainstream. *sigh*
2.The slant parking wala
This is one person who takes Juhi Chawla’s “Taedha hai par mera hai” too seriously. They’re infamous for blocking narrow streets by parking their vehicle in weird positions. Diagonally with the road is their favourite. That’s not even the worst part. They take their own sweet time to do anything may it be sipping the last few drops of tea to reversing their car with the mandatory grouch as if they’re doing a favour to the world by returning back to sanity.
3. The giggling girls
Now you have this gaggle of girls who always walk in groups (or as I call it, the vixens travel in a pack). They’re lost in their own world of gossip and other useless nonsense. But I kinda get it. I mean who cares about the freaking huge car that is honking at you for the past 5 minutes when you’re regaling in mock horror at how Geeta wore a revealing dress at Samita’s party while you secretly want to ask where your co-gossiper got her nails done but won’t because it is not courteous. It’s a tough job being a gossipy girl,believe you me
Everyone knows this one rich,overspoilt brat who owns that dream car you drool over.These idiots tend to assume that the law is in their pocket and the streets are what colloquially are known as, his/her’s “baap ka maal“. They drive without any regard for anyone else on the road at speeds which would make Usain Bolt blush.They are primarily responsible for 90% of the explicits you shout at the road and 100% of your Mom’s “aaj kal ki generation…” lectures.
