mr. s and cars

Who is Mr. S? He's my colleague at work. What's up with him? Well, here's the story...

Mr. S used to drive a Satria Neo. Last year during Ramadan, the car was involved in an accident. He sent it for repair. All was ok. Then one day, he parked the car by the roadside near Airod (next to Skypark terminal). Someone broke the window and took away stuffs he kept in the car, including a sling bag that his mum bought for him. He was upset, but what to do. Fixed the window. Life goes on.

This year, about the same time I got Dobby, he traded the Satria Neo for Ford Fiesta. He really enjoyed his new ride. Then recently, while he was driving on a speed lane, he misjudged his distance from the car in front. What else? Gedebum. Major damage to the engine compartment. The car is still in the workshop as we speak.

Not having any car to drive to work, he had to borrow his mum's Honda City. Then last Monday, that was when this story got really dramatic...

Mr. S is a gym avid. He normally hits the gym at Empire after work. By the time he finishes his workout and heads home, it's usually very late, close to midnight.

Last Monday, after his workout, he drove the Honda City home. After what happened to his Ford Fiesta, he developed a phobia for speed. So he drove really carefully, after all he was driving his mum's car. Suddenly, while on the road nearby Empire, the car was hit from the back. He was stunned. He didn't do anything wrong. In fact he was driving slowly.

He got out from the car. Five Indian men got out from the other car. They beat him senseless. Punched his face so many times that his nose broke. Took away all his belongings including his new Blackberry. He asked them to just take whatever they wanted and leave him alone. No, they didn't listen. They went on punching him, hitting him.. until he was flat on the ground, hardly able to move. Sampai lembik. Then they took the Honda City and drove away. Mr. S was left in the dark of the night, badly bruised, sehelai sepinggang. Fortunately a passerby saw him, stopped and helped him.

As of yesterday, Mr. S was still on medical leave. He had to undergo minor surgery. All of us at work were shocked and sad to hear what happened to him. More so that he may not be able to claim insurance for the stolen car as it was his mum's car and he wasn't a registered driver in the insurance policy.

Moral of the story? Just too many.

Drive safe everyone.

This is too disturbing knowing that danger lurks everywhere in our country. I pray that he recovers quickly and pray that those culprits will be caught and prosecuted.
