Locomotive malfunction

tyre burst

It beggars belief that I scratched and dented my car while parking ONE (1) DAY after getting my car out of the workshop. To add insult to injury, my tire burst (not puncture, it literally FUBAR on me) six hours later. I was running on my damn RIMS for at least 1 km before I reached the nearest gas station to replace it.

Grr…

  1. Oh my!! Eh, must be your car plate! I know you’re not superstitious but its been a series of unfortunate with your vios! ahhhhhhh, hope all’s well now for you.

  2. really pity your car, suffering damages one after another. but when ones luck is not that good, a series of unfortunate events do happen. do take care of yourself ya, as well as your bank account.

  3. A sequence of unfortunate events, bro – keep your head up, things’ll get better soon. All that misfortune has to be balanced out by a string of good luck – it’s right around the corner.

  6. Why did you need to go to the gas station to change your tyre? Running on your rims is really a bad idea.
    I think between you and Tim you should have covered everyones car problems for the rest of the year :D

  7. Locomotive malfunction,Locomotive malfunction?!!! shit hb, i have done stuff like that my self. Shreded the tires. It was a total F–k up. Persons give a damn about you. I aint perfect, HB, far from it. But please, HB. quite giving us all a heart attack,every time you wreck a car, ok. You Git. Try to take care of you self, at least a little. Jeez. Cousre , I know this will fall on deaf ears. Just like mine. Please be careful, HB. You Git. love you. just like me, but better. Tom

  8. I am sorry, Hb. I got too much of my own Dad and Mom in me I guess. I only called you a git in the most family and nice way. ( it means “You bastard”, or “son of bitch”) or like saying howlie, nigger, cracker, or whore. If you are amongst friends, it is ok, otherwise not a good idea. ( if I thought some one meant it, it would be cause for a big fight, and someone would be missing a tooth or two- most probably me) Now get out there and do something good, you git friend. And quit wrecking those cars. Tom

  9. complete ass wipe, HB. Me, not you. I apoligize. Every day brings a new thing. Do the best you can, for all you love. I learn alot from you, and try to pass it on to my family. You mofo Git.;) tom

  10. I suspect its the gremlins. Do what I do when I get unexplained mechanical issues. Hold a ceremony to placate the car gods, (or mechanical failure gods) Don’t forget the required offerings, ritual holy water, cheap alcohol etc. I swear it works!

  11. i think you need to do something to appease the machine spirits. give your friendly local adeptus mechanicus a call to set up some maintenance rituals, prayers of function and also an libation.
    you seem to have gone through your half yearly supply of ‘bad shit’. so worry not for it will be uphill (in a good way) from here onwards =)

    Cweelee: Yalor! Damn soi nowadays, I don’t know why also. Lucky in other things though. ;)

    Trey: QAG is a Kuching plate. Come to think of it, both my cars have Kuching plates despite being a Sibu guy. :)
    christock: I know! :S
    Damn unlucky.
    ShaolinTiger: The breakdown lane was too narrow for me to change tyres…I would have to be partially in the slow lane in order to do that…not worth risking. ;)
    Yeah, we seem to have a series of vehicular bad luck this year. :)
    annant: I don’t blame her, with the way I treat her. ;)
    xes: Cheers buddy! I do have good luck, in other departments, so I guess it all balances out. ;)

    crappy booze: Heh! I did, watched and read all the books. I love it! :)
    CT: Hey, good to hear from you again mate!
    Actually, this incident (the tyre, not the dent – I wasn’t drinking when the dent happened) was caused by me running into a curb at high speed…after ethanol impaired my judgement. ;)
    seth.frostheart: Heh! Thanks! :)
    I’m having a lot of good luck in other departments though so I’m not complaining! :)
    Simon Seow: I did! I just can’t change it coz the breakdown lane is toooo close to the highway. I’ll be run over.

  13. Shirley Snow: Haha! It’s not the car’s problem. I had an accident the VERY FIRST DAY I go the car. Rear ended this idiot who e-braked on an orange light. He apparently does not believe in the mantra “Orange means GO FASTER”. ;)

  14. This blog seems to recieve a good ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It gives a nice unique twist on things. I guess having something authentic or substantial to post about is the most important factor.
