I once bought a used car. It was late autumn, on the street bad weather, a little wet snow and ice of course. Return to work on car, and as it usually happens - if the day is in the morning failed, expect trouble to the end - in the sluggish traffic on the bridge, car led, and I met with a bridge guardrail, and spun the car so that I blocked the whole strip.
I stand near the car in sickle and hammer t shirt, nervously smoking and cursing, waiting police and emergency services. Why it did not happen just anywhere, but in the midst of one of the main bridges, strategic highway, just at rush hour, and not at any other time?
Behind me rose jam several miles. Drivers who still managed to overtake me, I seemed very strange: the first thing they opened slightly window and asks if I need help, and then carefully examined me and my car and suddenly began to laugh wildly. I wonder what they could so cheer Russian guy in the sickle and hammer t shirt? I had a strange feeling that something is wrong. I got nervous and even more again scored dialing the emergency number. I was reassured that the truck is on the way.
Meanwhile, drivers continued to drive around me whenever politely offer assistance. I'm tired of them politely respond that I do not need help. As one traveled, were filled with laughter. Once again, I looked at my new sickle and hammer t shirt: can, is not taken to wearing such things? Do they laugh at a man who got into an accident? Like nothing funny too, with many such sometimes.
My doubts were dispelled once the driver instantly. Window opened, but instead of a polite offer to help, I heard the familiar curses in my native language:
- Are you not find another place? Turn on the radio, you moron!
Mood immediately improved, and my heart warmed, so that means meet countryman!
I followed his advice and turned on the radio. There just passed a report: "Frick in sickle and hammer t shirt on the bridge is still selling his car, which recently celebrated its 300th anniversary." I think I figured out what was wrong. Rear window car sported commemorative label that was specified this date. The announcement of sale machines are also attached to the glass, after purchase I forgot to ask his fate. It turns out that it failed for a commemorative sticker and made her one. When I'm stuck in the road, all decided that I'm here to open a personal auto vintage cars.
