Presence of Mind?

Someone did a tag cloud for my blog and the topic on which I write most frequently turned out to be- My Car! Which could be true cause I spend a good 2 hours in my car everyday.......

Anyway, keeping this short and sweet.

Everyday, I come across at least one person on the road who totally pisses me off. And yesterday was the same. I wanted to turn right and there was a car full of men who wanted to go straight but were in the wrong lane. And decided since it was a girl (yes I'm still a girl, not a woman and I intend to address myself that way for a long, long time to come), they laughed at me and went straight and had the audacity to turn back and give me a nice, big grin.

My anger came shooting up. My face was red, my lips were pursed and a perfectly menacing scowl was on my face. That was it! I was going to show them my middle finger! I lift my hand, abuse under my breath and lift my finger.......and then realise it's the wrong finger....the thumb.....I was giving that bunch of chauvanists a thumbs up sign!!!!!!!

There is a serious coordination issue with the hand and the brain.

Hence Proven. I'm slow!

A thumbs sign indicates encouragement! Am sure you will meet them again..hopefully this time it will be the right finger and the words..and the looks :P

thumb sign ! you must have scandalised them , they would have thought it is some new age symbol that they areout of touch with !

driving on delhi roads does test your patience and tongue ,

as always you seem to find something funny in this chaos , drive carefully

You post had me laughing so loudly.

BTW, I have some grrrrreat news for you. In Iran, if you show a thumbs-up to them, it is the equivalent of showing them your middle finger.

I think the next time you tell this story to your friends, you should finish it with this.
