Who Scratched My Car ?

How many people owning New and Shiny cars have sleepless nights about their car getting scratched ?
Your car can be scratched by miscreants, by children or by your novice neighbor learning to park his car; purposefully or even unknowingly. I pretty sure, all folks parking their cars in shared parking areas would agree.

My dad was always vary of buying a new car for this reason. So we had 2 second-hand cars and eventually now he bought new one, which inspects very meticulously everyday in the morning and will solemnly reports "There is another scratch!" or " The neighbors are useless!"

Why do i suddenly bring up this topic?

Today morning after returning from the gym, Leena noticed some scratches on her car! She went berserk cursing the children who normally play around during the day. I smiled and laughed a bit. That just things made things worse.
I then realized that, Scratches on the most beloved possession can make anyone's mood bad especially when you can do nothing about it.

My advice to all folks owning/playing to own cars (new or old) is GET OVER IT and Learn to Live with it . This is surely, most definitely going to happen; especially if you are living in India. There is no escape and moreover there is nothing you can do with it. Hence, stop sulking/cribbing/getting angry.
And Have a Nice Day :D .

Very well said.....scratches on your beloved possession do hurt. This not only applies to materialistic possessions but to every other aspect of life. Just to elaborate....try and say to some parent that his/her kid is not disciplined or smart, or say to a wife that her husband is lazy, or worst...walk up to a person and blame him/her for something he/she has not done.....all these are nothing but scratches or scars you are leaving behind on somebody. It does really hurt to see scratches on your beloved possession, including yourself. Yes...for things you have no control, just leave it and move on... but make sure that you don't leave scratches anywhere.
