Today started off like any other day. Make bed, shower, feed the kids, make them poop, change them etc and off we go to school at 10.15am. Manfred and I yak like usual and when we are 3minutes drive from school, I was making a turn into a row of shops and suddenly my car break down like a robot that battery suddenly went FLAT. nothing is responding, and not even my hazard light could work. I was really worried that people will not notice and run into us… But thank Lord as we really just turn into a not so busy big road and I was just meter away from a very nice shaded spot to stop my car.
Think Think Think. I have Manfred with me, whom is almost late for his class. (But that is not the point, I wouldn’t want to hang out by road side fixing car with him as I know these days anything bad could happen. Was a little upset as I planned to go to work earlier to finish up my work.
Called hub, and later hub told me to call up the mechanics. Mechanics told me just get tools from boot and knock on the battery connection after hearing my description on how the car went DEAD on ME!! Well, I figure since it will probably take min or it could take hours for the prob to be fixed and no one knows. I decided I will hail a cab(or some kind hearted good Samaritan to give us a ride to school, which is really just mins away)
*Blush* I approach a young couple only to regret again COZ he freaked out AS IF I AM A CONNED WOMAN WHOM USE A TODD AS MY camouflage TO COMMIT CRIME!!! Finally I walked to a busier road and hail a taxi. 3min and RM3 poorer we arrived at school. A aunt whom drop her grand daughter to school smile at me at the school gate like she know what happened to me to arrive school in a taxi. I send M to his class and leave school compound.
The aunt was still outside the school, I asked if she could offer me a ride, she said yes willingly and as if she waited there and expecting me to ask for help already. I tell you, I really can’t thank her enough for being so kind, and stood by there waiting to offer me help… *Sniff* so touched as after meeting the young couple earlier, I really succumb to the idea that the world is”COLD”.. and no one ever gonna willing to help me.
How wrong WAS I! There are kind people out there. REally there are…. I am grateful for this incident that I know we are blessed and God is watching us every single minutes. Despite my car broke down, It happened at a place, at time which danger was minimal, I met good people whom help out and that really totally make my day.
I went back to my car, found a little metal tools and open up my front bonnet, Took a deep breath and decided that I am gonna do it! DEspite I might look like an idiot whom know nothing about car…….. I knocked on the battery.. VOILA! My hazard signal was ON! I tried turning the ignition KEY! And my car went back to lifE!
Yippie! I left that place at 11am… Calling my PIL and hub that I am safe and going to work. Thank you lord. My day had turned better…. I was late to work, but it was ok………..
