Right as I was telling in the previous post ,

I have a problem there is extra fridge.. what to do with it ..

The first thing that came to my mind was to put it in the garden .. JUST to show off to the neighbours, Oh yes I can do things like this too, Look – look at this  I am so rich, I have a fridge that I don’t even use, instead of selling it on Ebay, I have kept it here to rot.. I don’t need the money and I am doing so well.

Lots of ideas came to mind, there is so much one can do with a fridge , so many games can be played hide and seek in the garden, when I was a kid any time we found something like this lying around all I could see was another adventure 🙂  but these days I don’t think kids do such things, I don’t see any kid running with an old cycle tyre , or playing other naughty games , the sense of adventure is not there any-more in the new generation I feel ..

Right coming back to the problem the law says that the old fridge needs to be DISPOSED off properly, and as all Indians do to save a few pounds I did not take advantage of the company that dropped the new fridge to take it away, you save a penny and a Penny saved is a PENNY SAVED. I can be a miser too ..

Oh god these recent posts are more of showing me in the bad light , how dumb I am in the last post I fell for the marketing trick and now a miser too.

Anyway quickly moving on before I let go a lot of my personal secrets, I thought I will put it in my car and take it to the tip to be disposed off, it used to be so easy in the good old days , you take unwanted stuff and dump it into the containers BUT now its all changed..  Well before even reaching the DUMP AREA..

First putting the fridge in the car is another big adventure how to fit the damn thing in.

After a proper physical wrestling match with the old fridge, a few choice words of swears where it managed to mark my car, I finally got it in.

Now the second problem started, since the hatch of the car would not close , I had to be very careful that no Traffic police saw me else , that would be another drama. ..  This reminds me did I tell you guys I got speeding ticket, for 11 years now I have been using the same road going and coming to work, there is a speed camera which has never ever worked EVER.. but in august on the fateful day it decided to click the picture of my car’s backside 🙂 Not happy with that, I don’t mind the fine but the points on license that is not good , I have a clean license and by that I don’t mean it has no marks etc .. by clean I mean I don’t have any penalties etc..

So I drove through all the back roads, to make sure I don’t get caught.. Thankfully it was my lucky day..

So I entered the dump-yard  there was someone standing at the gate, next to a little hut, in his hi-fi yellow fluorescent jacket, with a clip board in hand, a dirty looking pen hanging by a thread, I guess to make sure no one steals it , But than which person in his right mind would want to steal that pen.. imagine all those dirty hands that have touched it.. and you know MEN where all there hands go when left idle 🙂

Looking at him it seems he was someone who has probably done a degree in CLIPBOARD management. 

He  came over and asked

“What you got”

I said “RUBBISH” I mean what else will I have , in my car which i will bring to a Dump-yard.. “GOLD

What’s in the back ?     “A Fridge ” I replied.

The moment I said that he had a funny smile he looked at me  with that look, which says , you plonker , yeah I could see that look in his face and said “ooh you can’t do that..  we have an environmental Policy  now,  you can’t just bring it here and leave it”

Then he used the CLIPBOARD management degree to tell me how the fridge has gases ..  How its dangerous for the environment.. “I KNOW THAT DUMBO” I thought.. that’s why I have brought it to be disposed off properly at a proper place …  I could see myself driving all the way back and doing all that drama in the drive of my house , taking out the fridge , I just felt that maybe just maybe I could be lucky So I asked

“Right what do I need to do then” and the next reply floored me and I so much wished to bang my head into a wall ..

he says “You have to phone us in..  and then we come and get it, and Dump it properly at the dump-yard“..

AAAAAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  , yeah I felt like laughing my head off by now .. I held my nerve  I asked who do I ring .. and he gave me a number.

So I am sitting in my car, right in front of him,  picked my mobile and called that number .. the phone in the little hut next to the gate .. Rang ..

This same guy ran to the office ..  he answers the phone

“Hello – ”

I said “HELLO , I have a fridge to dispose”

he says “Ok, Where are ya”

I Am  OUTSIDE  YOU £”$£”$£”$… At the dump-yard…………… So that was the drama involving the disposing of the fridge.. phewwwwwwwwwwwwwww… .

Ps:- So I will leave this here , why don’t you guys give it a go and Tell me what happened next.. 🙂

PPS:- To make it funny I have used some words/dialogues/ scenes taken from a Tv Show.. I can cheat too 🙂

My car.. Oh yes SAFARI on Uk roads ... 🙂 Neela Ford Zameen wahun nu.. Rakhi hai SAFARI ghuman Ghumaun Nu 🙂

I usually like to go for a run in the mornings or at least sometime during the day , It gets difficult to find time sometimes so i started to take my gym bag with me to office , So I could go for a jog in my lunch hour, that way i could get away from the office gossip and also do something healthy.

Over the christmas and new year holidays I have eaten so much with everyone celebrating the festivities ,  I have been feeling very guilty for not going to the gym and running regularly,  am sure a lot of people who are regular to gym will understand this guilty feeling.  Anyway Dont worry I am not going to go on about exercising lest you people think this is another of those lecturing posts..

I thought for a change write something about when  I go for a run some nice interesting things take place, you dont realise at the moment but later on they do make you smile .. 

Like for example a few days back i was running along chug chug chug , when a idiot of a driver saw me , he drove past me , I have this big flourescent jacket which is bright orange even a blind man will see it … Anyway as I am running on the pavement this guy suddenly decided to swerve and get on to the pavement to park

And HOLA I could not stop myself THUD I banged into the back of his car …

What an Idiot , they have posters here Everywhere , almost every street , every corner  telling drivers to be mindful of bikers, pedesterians and all yet this plonker had to go ahead and do it , to makes matter worse he rolled down his window and usual “F__ hell Cant you see “.. he tells me , I did not know should I be laughing or crying or shouting at this idiot, I went up to him .. Saw this was a big bloke .. I thought here we go I am going to get thumped today .. but he would not get out of the car, jsut kept shouting from inside his car..

Man “ I am calling the police”-

Me ” go ahead, you the one who is parked ON the pavement not me ” …

He shut up cause i was right,  I shrugged myself and went on with the run.. to see he was following me .. I ignored him for sometime but each time I was to cross over the street he would accelerate his car, I really was thinking at this time that he is going to run me over,  I had to do something so I turned back and simply rushed to him…

He stopped the car,  I asked him what you doing..

 he replied “I am following you to see where you live “.. He he he he I just laughed

“Good on you mate, I still got about 5 -6 miles to run… , Carry on following me “…  I guess it did not sound viable to him driving behind me , and spending all that money on fuel… So he gave up after about half a mile.. What an idiot he should have got out of his car and slapped me I could have done that if it was me, I mean anyone can see what happened and its not as if i made a dent on his car I AM NOT THAT FAT 🙂

Another interisting thing happened one time ,  I was running during my lunch time again on the pavement by the side of a canal, I saw a lady walking with a pram , the whole of the way was blocked by her … she probably heard me running and started to walk to one side which to me looked as if she was giving way.. She moved towards her Left ,

So i changed my direction to pass her from her right hand side .. I was jsut a few steps away from her , when she suddenly stopped and leaned over the pram , bringing her Arse outwards .. BAMMMMMM I banged into her … the silly woman was NOT giving me side, she was marely turning the pram, so she could lean over to have a look at her child .. 

It was a embarassing moment .. with me all huffing and puffing, my hands on a ladies body  trying to stop myself from falling.. 🙂   

Yeah I know the looks on people who saw it ….

 Then once..  you know how people take there dogs for a walk and they  have such long leads.. that too so thin that if it is raining or snowing it gets difficult to see the lead .. well there was me running as I turned a corner there was this old man, on the left , on seeing me he sort of pulled his hand towards his chest.. WELL THAT AINT GOING TO WORK … cause the lead is so long … 

Oh yessssssssss  i ran straight into it , at this moment i had not realised but I could hear a little doggy thump thump dragged behind me ..  the lead entangled in my legs .. yeah I can be cruel toooo

I have seen so many idiots on road, they will see you running along and then suddenly forget you are on the road and turn there car.. and then look at you as if its MY FAULT they ignored me … Ohhh bless them
