Oye…Auto..


Auto rickshaw aka Auto is common man’s taxi..

I have a very strong bond with “auto”.In my KG,it was Rashid who used to take me to school along with another six souls.The seven of us used to wish him “Good Morning Rashid ikka” as we were taught that as mandatory in school.

Then it is Dinu maaman(uncle) who took the responsibility of my journey to school..even that trip to and fro from school was so much of fun 😀

In short,I used to like to travel in auto..whether it is to school or at times otherwise too..

But,after reaching Chennai,I came to know about the share auto concept..Four or five people share an auto and pay just 10 bucks each..As i started living on my own earnings,it was a very convenient method for me to save money 🙂

Then my transfer to the mount road office made my daily journey in train till Nungambakkam or Egmore..Now come the dilemma..

I have two choices to reach my office..

Choice 1:

Get down at Nungambakkam,cross the Choolaimedu high road and get inside the LIC share auto.

Waiting time to get an auto : 10 – 20 mins

Cost : Rs.10

Speed of Auto : 10m/min

Time taken : 45 – 50 minutes

My temper : Increasing

My BP : Increasing

My mood when I reach office : ^%#%$@$#*%@!

 

 

Choice 2 :

Get down at Chennai Egmore and get inside the “normal” auto.

Waiting time to get an auto : 1 – 5 mins

Cost :Rs.200

{

It is the sum of  

1)The cost of my energy which i waste to yell at those auto guys when they say Rs 80 – Rs 100 to go to LIC complex when the actual cost is just Rs 30.

2)The Rs 30 – Rs 40 which I pay in the end after so much of fighting.

}

Speed of Auto : 20m/min (Reasons : Driver is angry that I’m paying only 30 bucks plus the “terrific” traffic  😦 😦 )

Time taken : 10 – 15 minutes

My temper : Increasing,Decreasing,Increasing..according to the speed of the auto and the frequency of the stops because of the traffic

My BP : Increasing exponentially

My mood when I reach office : ^%#%$@$#(*%&^%

Now tell me..which option should i go for????

weeeep..sob..sob.. 😦 😦 😦 😦
