Boy, interrogated II

"You know... this guy [name of guy]... he hit a car today." Viv said.

"OH MY GOD!!!" I was horrified. I knew the guy. He was in Viv's cricket team. "Is he all right? How did it happen? He was driving to the match???"

"Oh he wasn't driving." Viv said.

"Oh! So you meant to say that a car hit him?"

"Oh no no. He hit the car."

"Err...?"

"He was going for a sixer."

"Oh! So he was batting!"

"Yes."

"So it was the ball that hit the car?"

"Yes. The ball went high up over the fence and hit the car."

"Oh my goodness, was there an accident???"

"Oh no, no accident."

"So the driver managed to avoid the ball?"

"Oh there was no driver in the car."

"Err... So it was a stationary car?"

"Yeah, it was just parked outside the cricket ground."

I took a deep breath and exercised a lot of self-restraint not to find the nearest wall and go thunk my head on it several times.

"Please tell me at least the ball smashed the windscreen?" I asked.

(Hey, don't give me that look. Yes, I was desperate to find anything, anything, to make this 'story' worth my while.)

"Oh no, it just hit the front of the car and bounced off."

Long pause.

*THUNK THUNK THUNK*

well, i got what he mean in 0.2 seconds. how long did it take you?you gotta come down to our (guys) frequency to understand us.

Reminds me of an interesting scenario.

My classmate had been missing from college for a couple of days. When he got back he said he had gotten in an accident in his new bike cos he skidded off the road trying to avoid hitting a stray dog.

Here are the different type of questions he was asked.

Group A: Dude, is your bike okay? You should have run over that mutt! Damn dogs!!! Show me the scars dude, awesome!

Group B: Is your bike okay man?

Group C: Is the dog okay? Are you sure you didn't hit it? Did the dog limp off on one leg? Oh poor creature!

Group D (only one member): Are you okay? I tried calling you. Always pray to God before you get on the bike. You are lucky it was a minor accident.

Any guesses on who is who?
