Because life is not a movie, we do not sometimes have the perfect comeback or execute the most appropriate action when horrible situations present themselves. We got a rather interesting e-mail forwarded to us a few weeks ago and decided to ask our readers what they would do if they were the woman in the storyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Read on:
The email read;
This happened recently. After work last week Wednesday, I was on my way home when a woman driving an old car in front of me brushed a young girl driving a very clean Honda Accord. This young girl alighted from her car and started insulting the woman, who was old enough to at least to be her mother or perhaps an Auntie. All efforts by passers-by to pacify her proved abortive as she said the car was bought by her boyfriend
I watched and sympathised with the woman. She told the girl sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d fix the car but it was already evening and she had no money on her unless the girl followed her home if her hubby could help.
The girl kept screaming as people tried to beg on behalf of the woman. The girl blatantly refused and decided to call her boyfriend saying: “Baby boy, a stupid woman just hit my car”. The car he bought her.
The man appeared in no time, ready to please his girlfriend and help her out. On getting there, he started shouting, “Where is the stupid woman ?”, only to realise the woman was his wife. If you were the wife what would you do?
I would leave the place Ã¢â‚¬ËœASAPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢!
I would like to cause a scene but sadly, I am not really the confrontational type so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d probably just quietly disappear because the humiliation would simply be too much.

Being that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a married woman and in this scenario, of course, I will take the married womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s side, I would probably have both the guy and the silly little girlfriend and their Honda Accord pushed off some cliff mysteriously…hey just taking out the trash!
I wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t fight for the Honda; instead I would just get into my old car, drive home, pack my bags as well as the kids and go home to my mumÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s house. Then I would try to move on. I think getting married when you are not financially stable is submitting yourself to torture. Women should not wait on their husbandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pay cheques each month end because all men are cheats and deceivers (on different levels though) and depending fully on them is setting yourself up for disaster.
I would walk away and leave the two idiots because they probably deserve each other. No need to waste my time arguing with fools; life goes on after all!

I would throw the keys of my old car at the little girl, get the keys to the clean Honda Accord which is supposed to be mine anyway, vroooooooooom out of there and go change the locks at my house and send Ã¢â‚¬Ëœbaby boyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ a text to come and get his nasty clothes!
I agree with Felisah! I would get the Honda and drive off with my head held high!
