Herbie my darlin'...

My car, Herbie was broken into last nite around 7pm. The arsehole smashed the driver’s seat window and ripped out the stereo. Thank god my brother came home in time and surprised the arsehole. He managed to run away but left the RM2K stereo in the car. It was drizzling and I was in the house. I couldn’t hear anything. All I heard was my brother shouting at someone and when I opened the electric gate I saw someone running away. Didn’t have a good look at the guy. Dammit!
I then went to check on Herbie. He was a mess. There were broken glasses everywhere and the arsehole had actually ripped the wires of the stereo. Even the coin compartment was broken and there were coins all over the place. What the hell was he looking for anyway? I don’t put money in the car. Who does? My smart tag was in my handbag. This was not the first time someone tried to steal the car so I know better than to leave anything valuable in my car. I then called the mechanic near my house (thank god it was still opened) and he came and took Herbie away. I don’t know how much it’s gonna cost me to have the glass window installed and the stereo fixed. I just hope it doesn’t cost me a bomb. Tears are welling up in my eyes as I am writing this. Herbie has been with me for almost 7 years. He’s my first car and has been through everything with me. I have to admit I don’t really take good care of him but he never lets me down. Even my dad was amazed how long he had lasted under my care.

Could it be that Herbie was jealous because he found out that my new car has arrived and I am going to sell him off soon? I noticed that something bad always happen when I talk about selling it off. But it’s just a car. Cars don’t have feeling, do they? Sigh…
Oh yeah, Genting trip was okay but I fell on my butt AND sprained my ankle while playing volleyball.
Sigh...it has not been a good month for me. Kena mandi bunga kot...

so sorry to hear abt that. i learnt my lesson the hard way when my window was smashed cos the idiot(s) wanted my month-old smart tag. costed me abt RM160 to replace the window and i never use a smart tag again.

I think cars do have feelings la. Bila rasa nak beli kereta baru je, mesti ada something happened to the current car, like asyik rosak etc..Maybe its coincidence but I've seen it happen to a lot of people...I think they can sense when they're being replaced. :)

Anyway, totally understand what you feel. I loved my first car and was really sad when I had to let it go.

Cars have feelings! Mine merajuk many times by way of crashing into other cars whenever I talk bout getting new cars. Sigh.

Sorry to hear abt Herbie. For some reason, cars tends to "misbehave" when you're thinking abt selling. Like my last car broke down after we came back from the current car's showroom..it just died!

Cosmic_GurL said...

Trueblue - Weird dontcha think so? I mean seriously, everytime I talk about selling it off it will surely get cranky

Zuhri - Thats what my dad and other neighbours said too. Them drug addicts punya kerja. GRRR!!!

Princess - My Herbie kuat merajuk gila! Lebih dr the boyfriend!

Kaisersoze - Thanks. I guess it must be true that cars do have feelings. Must refrain from talking abt selling Herbie then
