Title : An Amusing Incident I Witnessed

Last Saturday, I witnessed an amusing incident as I was walking home. I stopped at the traffic lights, waiting for the green light for pedestrians to cross the road.

It was quite a busy road and there was a long line of vehicles waiting to turn right. The car in front was a flashy orange sports car, being driven by a young man. There was a beautiful lady sitting next to him. The driver was revving his car loudly, attracting the attention of passers-by and the other drivers.

He began to inch his car forward and he looked impatient. When the light changed, he revved the engine loudly and moved. He was almost in the middle of the road when the engine of his car suddenly stopped. He looked irritated and tried starting the car several times but to no avail.

The sports car stalled at the middle of the intersection and was obstructing traffic from all directions. One of the other drivers came forward to offer help. I saw him looking at the dashboard and the he loudly announced that the car had run out of petrol.

The driver of the sports car looked embarrassed. With the help of a few men, he managed to push the car to the side of the road. The beautiful lady coolly stepped out of the car, hailed a passing cab and left the scene.

I am sure that the driver of the car will think twice before showing off again.
