      First Gearheads ERT Action!

      Kinda funny that I had to be the first one to report the first ever ERT mission! (Emergency Response Team - This is a voluntary group of people across various cities for people to call in case they get into trouble/emergencies)


      There I was lolling in front of the system around 7.15pm today, when I get a call from Digital Vampire. Apparently k a s h's Tuscon and a Swift had sideswiped each other, and he was being gheraod by the driver and his cohorts opposite Central at Bellandur Junction. He was apparently with his family and kids. We immediately swung into action - I ran out in the same clothes I was wearing - a track pant and a tank top! (... well.. it felt like! - the T-shirt was rather nice before I grew all the 'adipose-muscles' ), got into Digital Vampire's car and rushed to the spot.

      Turned out the driver, pretending to be the owner, along with his friends and some of the ever interested local auto fellows, had all gotten around poor Kash. The damage was minimal - the kinds that you'd have if your bumper scraped against a wall. His right side wheel arch had a couple of dings though.

      They tried everything they could - including intimidation. We called each and every one of their bluffs! Finally this guy said its going to come out of his pocket and so we felt sorry for him and settled for a paltry sum.

      It was downright funny - for every thing they said/did, we had a ready-made counter! By the time we left the auto guys had their fill of guffaws - Well.. those who know me know how I love to spread the cheer!

      Its done! Thus the ERT swung into action and saved the day!

      Thanks kb100 for the timely help...

      It was outrageously funny... When kb100 mentioned that he is from Insurance sector, one of the auto drivers was pointing to another auto-driver and remarked..."Saar... this guy is running his auto without Insurance". The other auto guy immediately fled the scene thinking that kb100 is gonna penalize him

      Thanks to Sujit and Anoop for helping me out. In fact I called up Anoop just to ask some advice on how to handle this. He simply said that he will be there in 10 mins

      The way KB handled this mob was a sight to watch. In just one minute, all the frowns in their faces became smiles and everyone were grinning from ear to ear in 2 minutes flat...

      I had postponed learning Kannada till now citing various reasons. Well.. not anymore.
