Car trouble

Filed under: My Life — Suramya @ 1:52 AM

Yesterday night Vinit was driving back home at about 2 am when his car (a 1986 Maruti 800) decided to stop working about 10 mins drive from our place (Thats at the speed I drive). So me and Surabhi decided to go help him.

We took a rope from home and drove to where he was stalled. The problem was that the car would start but the accelerator wasn’t working so the car would stall after a few seconds. Anyways we looked at the engine but as all three of us are computer engg and not mechanical we couldn’t figure out what was wrong. So we used the rope to tie the two cars together and towed the car home.

The rope did break twice but we managed to get home. Believe me it was really boring driving at 10 kmph on a road that I usually go at 80-90 kmph. For me it was a really easy drive but Vinit was covered with sweat by the time we got home as he had to be careful that he didn’t hit my car if I suddenly braked.

Thankfully the distance wasn’t that far otherwise it would have taken a lot more time. As it was late at night there wasn’t any traffic to worry about either.

Felt bad for Vinit, as he had just come back from Jaipur and must have been exhausted.

This is all for now will post more later.
