I was driving a company supply bus, I actually collected the key from the driver to go and do small oversabi before he comes out of the bank...

We had just done a supply at a bank and wanted to drive out...


I was jejely just trying to reverse with no side mirrors... The bank security that was guiding me seemed like he lost attention and kept saying 'come, come, keep coming'

Before we knew it, we heard a 'small' gbaa sound... Small sound ooo...


Came down from the bus and found out that I just bashed one very fine Hyundai like that... I was so confused to take note of its model...


But what confused me most when I saw that the left rear light was gone and the bumper was torn... I was like "Ahhhh, just like that? Just small bashing ooo, so someone kanor play with you? "

You know how that kind of story do end abi? It didn't end well sha...

Some people are very wicked.

They'll see my capital letter L, they'll see as I park on my own like a recluse. That way I can carry my problem and go jejely.
They'll still come and block me, or park very close_ very wicked people I must say.

I hated tight parking lots/streets , I hated reversing or parking with my back...doing any of the above as a Learner, was definitely a very bad experience.

I have always been a rogue since the days of Nintendo F1 race, when alone I have little patience for road courtsey, I can drive a trailer like a Ferrari, I don't ever remember been a learner Sha. I just took the wheels, and take calculated risks and since then have been a pro. I actually learned driving with virtual game play.

The only car I have bashed is a Renault, I was driving my sienna and backing out, the back glass was fogged due to rain and I was using side mirror, I just touch it small, the door pressed, the owner just ask me to go no story.

It may sound funny but i don't and will never learn how to do anything, i just do it and it turns out good

I never learned how to drive a motorcycle

I never learned how to drive a bicycle, i just picked up a bicycle in the morning and by evening, i was an expert

I never learned how to drive a car, i just bought a car on Craigslist and the owner agreed to drive it from New York to New Jersey and park it in my garage, i bought a New Jersey license plate and put on it, i only drove the car to school, when i got tired, i went to the DMV and got my drivers license

Haha.. Back in school I had to go drop some students at the teaching hospital.
No one knew I was still a learner until I sighted Road safety and hurriedly tried to wear my seat belt, that's how my leg released the clutch and the bus stopped at the middle of the road. You don't wanna know what happened next. sad lipsrsealed

I was driving someday far back then in 2006 when I was still in my mid teen years, I was about approaching an intersection where suddenly a car just slightly bursted out trying to cross to the other straight side of the road, I thought the man was planning on hitting me and all of a sudden I diverted my steering and hit a parked bike, thank God no body was there, I for break person leg. Since then I got my confidence so fast,expected of a driver at a tender age and just two days after, I even overtook of trailer to show how perfect my driving skills became. Ever since, I got better and drive smoothly now, even when I enter public buses these days, I still assist the drivers when they're outta their buses.

Worst and embarrassing experience was trying to start the car with the gear in D.

I was confused and nervous until a lady walked up to me and said "Sir, put the gear in Park first"

Lol mine was very funny....

Dahz how I was already feeling like a Don and in my mind "wharris all this plenty ado about driving gan-an? No be this wan wey I de do?"

So I was driving on a smooth Road heading home after work.... And mehn I was hungry! Dahz how I remembered my agege bread that was in my bag on the passengers seat o..

I looked down the road, it was clear, people weren't passing as such, just parked cars. Na so I say oya lemme just take a bite of the bread to calm d hunger. I did and wow! Nothing happened! I was like "this is so easy"

Remember this was my first day driving ALONE on d road. Lolz. I took another one and nothing happened..

So i just relaxed, took a glance at the road again and decided to take the third bite...... Hehehhehehehheehhehehhee and you know what happened na! Before the bread could land into my mouth, the next sound I heard caused my head to jerk sharpaly "GBOOOAAAAA!"

For the first few seconds going to about 2 minutes, I was transfixed... I was wondering many things.... Why was smoke coming out from my bonnet? Was the car about to burn? How do I tell people that it's Agege bread that caused this? What do I tell the hefty man who came out with his car water on his face? Why was my side door refusing to open? Why did the empty Road suddenly gather plenty men staring at me? Why didn't I have a learners permit on the car? Where do I start repairs from? Was it the man's bumper? Or my destroyed radiator? Or my destroyed fender? Or my deformed bonnet?

And then.... Like rainfall after a thunderstrike, the tears came pouring.....

I refused to come out cos even amidst my tears I could hear the man ginjaring "Go and call who you would call o... U must repair my car today... new car....Car wey I jus park...... See me see devil......"

Chai... I say who send me oooooooo


Lolz anyways that day, like many days before and after it, I was Grateful for Gender Inequality grin

The man eventually tampered mercy with justice esp as na my own car even wound pass...

The next question on every one's lips was: "What happened?" abeg if na u wetin u for answer? cheesy

Lol I bashed one mint highlander, my bumper was damaged and the highlander didn't sustain any serious damage. The man still took me to the welder to pay for the damages but I was freed when he found out that I flat broke.

Very funny comments here. My first experience was when I tried to reverse out of the house.been doing that successfully prior to that because iv been a very good car handler.my bro pissed me.off that day and with a lil bit of anger..I drove without looking backwards and as you would expect, the tail lights hit the fence and was gone..it wasn't carelessness...it was anger. But these mad experiences make you a better driver. I really don't think I can bash any car anymore.
