Why me?

You wait to cross a busy road, there are no pedestrians crossing .There is no break to the traffic and is at its peak.After about a solid 5 minutes, the road is relatively empty when you see an auto approaching along the same side.You think the auto will cross you and wait for it to pass you.But just when you think so,the auto comes close to you and stops right infront of you and the driver asks you " engamma ponum?" You just nod your head and say a no and move ahead to cross the road.But by this time, the traffic is at its peak again.

Superbbbbbbbbbb!!!!

I have had this experience many times. Tickets get over when I come in front of counter, Power goes only in my house (on day of engagement) etc. etc....

@SUDHA
am sure it happens to many of us. its frustrating.

@ALBERT
oh the engagement episode? I have a few more to add then..

1. I see more trains in the opposite direction than in the same direction I wait for
2.I wait for a bus, manage to get into the crowded bus which comes after a wait of half an hour only to see an empty bus just behind the very same crowded bus
3.Food in the buffet counter gets over just at the time I approach and hence I need to wait till it is refilled.
4.You goto a restaurant, scrutinise thru the menu card, finally decide on a dish, and the waiter tells u that the very same dish alone is not available.

it happens!!

Was wondering if you were hybernating .Did not see your post for a while. Aaahh, the not so likeable thing of auto passing by you just when you are aboutt o cross is really frustrating. And whats more is the autowalas stare at you inquisitively.Wont we call for an auto when we want to? You hit the nal with this post, such a simple thing but well written

pooja said...

Why you?
Cos GOD wants to tell you the value of patience...
The taste of tea is as much time the tea-bag is squeezed and U R God's tea-bag...
God tests ppl whom he considers close...
God plans is that way! U can go ahead and disturb HIS plan but dont blame HIM if U end up in an accident trying to cross the road earlier than what HE had planned...
