P.R.N. Patience

Yesterday I was driving through Cantt area. Near Zaakir Tikka House, a lady who was talking on cell as well as driving her car, stopped without giving intimation. There was another car between her’s and mine and that guy was also talking on cell. Actually, she stopped there all of a sudden (no brake lights) that that guy hardly got away from having his car bumped into her’s. He started blowing horn but she was not paying attention, and then he took his hand out of the window and cursed her by showing up-right hand, while she was more interested in finding suitable parking in front of Zaakir Tikka. Matlab, no shouting, no fighting, no exchange of hot words. I really liked that way for communicating anger without getting into fuss, I guess, no one has that much time. I think it was due to Roza, because when we are fasting, we become more careful about others……kai nai?

    nah… i think it had got more to do with the fact that it was a ‘lady’.

    An average person still knows how to behave… i’m more scared from the ‘parha-likha’ tabka!

    You never know who will behave how when it comes to things like these, only a few show the nerve. Parhaaye likhaaye baykar kar daitay hain aksar log, aur kuch un-perh parhai likhon sai acha behave kar jatay hain. .. degree is not a gaurentee :D

    How do you stop a car without brake lights lighting up? Do you need a seperate lever to turn them on?

    And no matter how suddenly you stop, the person behind must stay at a distance to accomodate for that. Thats why the brake lights are there

    Due to some electrical fault or fused bulb, lights cant work and thats how on applying brakes, they will not ligthen up :|
    So one needs to take care of the faulty circuits to avoid accidents.

    Only a few care for “keeping the distance” :))

    actually, i have a pretty good idea why only “a few” care to keep a car’s distance. :D care to imagine. i’ll give you a hint! the car behind you sees that distance! :)

    hmm… Maybe that is because the guy on your back psychologically does not accept you taking the lead!!

    I feel lost :)

    Naaah! I beg to differ.

    I believe patience is the first casualty of Ramadan!

    “I am fasting and that automatically increases my nuisance value for others around me.”

    Let’s be honest — humans are more likely to be testy when they are hungry, but fasting gives some the Divine license to be act out their frustrations.

  11. Muneeb (unregistered) on September 18th, 2007 @ 8:49 am

    you know, come to think of it, that could be a blessing in disguise! i mean if someone vents out their frustration on you, and you don’t reply back because of your fast, you will get a lot of ‘sawaab’ for it! :) so, when someone is done being frustrated at you, you should say ‘arigato’!

  12. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on September 18th, 2007 @ 1:39 pm

    @Muneeb: Come on, ajkal kai zamanai main who cares for “Sawab.” Kis zamanay ke baat kartai ho, dil jalanai ke baat kartai ho :)

    Yeah during driving with closed windows, you have to rely on using sign/hand language for cursing ;)

  14. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on September 19th, 2007 @ 12:15 pm

    lol…not really. He opened his window and took out his hand, and kept her cursing :| until (maybe) she made a notice.

    >Pretty Simple: ajee isi zamaanay ki baat karta huun! i mean einstein did say something like “there are two things in this universe that are of abundance: hydrogen, and human stupidity”! :) i come in the latter!

    Being a sincere fan of Einstein, i would have to correct the quote stated by Muneeb. It goes like this:

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe”

    But Muneeb good to know that u don’t come in the hydrogen category :)

  18. Pretty Simple (unregistered) on September 19th, 2007 @ 11:06 pm

    Muneeb, see Einstein would mind if you quote him incorrectly.

    Good is that he knew the formula to measure infinity of human stupidity and no one else knows it. Good .. ;)

    >Faraz Khalid: Thanks for correcting me. I knew i wasn’t remembering the quote correctly!!
