For many of us, cars are a really convenient mode of transportation, but for some people, it is treated as a status symbol. But in all honesty, as long as the car is in good condition, it shouldn’t really matter what the brand is!
A netizen, Bosco Fong took to a Facebook page KL吹水站 to share his heartbreaking story. Bosco was supposed to fetch a female friend from work but he was rejected in the end.
He wrote in his post,
“Just now, I drove my Proton Wira to fetch a friend from her workplace. When I arrived, I pressed the horn a few times to let her know that I was there. However, when she saw me, she pretended that she did not know who I was.
“She even messaged me and said that next time, if I was driving my Proton Wira, I shouldn’t come and pick her up.”
“This trusty car has accompanied me as I drove from Johor Bahru to Penang and back again. It can even go up to Genting Highlands with no issues. Plus, the air-conditioning inside is still cold and anyone sitting in my car will definitely be sheltered from the elements. I really don’t understand why she doesn’t want to get into my car.”
He also shared a screenshot of the conversation he had with the girl, where he asked her why she did no want to get into the car. However, she did not answer his question, instead, she told him that she had already requested a Grab ride to come pick her up.
Shocked to her reply, he said,
“I have already arrive outside your workplace but you would rather take a Grab ride instead of getting into my car? Do you think my Proton Wira is really that embarrassing?”
Bosco’s post went viral instantly with over 6,400 shares as netizens sympathized with his predicament. One of them even said,
“Luckily she’s just a friend and not your girlfriend!”
A few netizens criticized the girl for being too materialistic and said that having a serviceable car was good enough.
Meanwhile, some girls shared their experience where they were willing to sit in the guy’s car even if he was driving a Perodua Kancil or some other old car as they did not mind such things.
It’s really true, why must we care what brand the car is? As long as it can get you places, you’re sheltered and comfortable!
Bosco was kind enough to fetch a friend from her workplace, going out of his way (because he is not her boyfriend) and you would rather call a Grab ride after he has come all the way?
