I now understand women who don’t date Subaru men

23 August 2016, 17:03 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I think yesterday as of this month had to be the worst day of my entire life or just this week.

Monday evening, started off with a lot of rain so I panic as to how I will get home and I already knew my hair would look like a bushman’s after the journey_ natural hair problems.

My friend calls me and tells me not to be worried she will get her man to come pick us up; obviously I am happy because 1. I save fare and 2. Comfort as compared to walking and of course avoiding the rain obviously.

My problems started when he could not pick us up but we had to go to his office. No problem! It was not such an inconvenience until we get there and they forgot to mention that we would be waiting for the man to close up. Not for 10, 15, or 20 minutes but for an hour. We are going to Rongai that is a significant difference in making our ‘journey’ on time.

I did not say a word but my friend could tell I was hating it and tells me to relax because at the end of the day, we would have spent some time in traffic so it is better we catch it while it eases up (it did not ease up by the way).

I was already missing my death traps in the form of Rongai matatus; if you have experienced them, you would know how time efficient they are in making a two hour journey reduce to almost just half an hour.

He eventually decides to leave and we walk in my head you can imagine the sigh of relief I am making; being a couple, they even had to argue about getting into the car so we wasted about 20min – I decided to get in and wait for them to decide when they would want to. And we are off, but good heavens, my high would not last. The man has to enter the petrol station- I really hate it when I am already late and the driver decides to fuel at that precise time; when you left the house in the morning, you did not know the car would need fuel? Not just that he had to check all those tyres (root cause of the worst night of my life) and pump them. This man checked but still inconvenienced us later on.

We get to the highway and the man ‘feels’ that the car does not feel right. You should have seen my face because I wanted to kill myself but mostly him. We have just left the gas station and now he feels the car is not right on the wheels. Lord Jesus, I was ready to kill him. It was now 8.30, and I am still in Madaraka and guess what that is where we parked so he could solve the issue.

I was thinking we are just replacing the one wheel with a spare; when I tell you the man rotated all the wheels you will think I am joking. Have you seen that meme on Instagram with eyes wide open and blank and the person is wondering their life existence- that was me!

I was not even near them I stood at a distance because I was contemplating getting onto one of the matatus to Rongai passing by. That would have been rude, so I had to wait. I was giving both of them dead stares.

He literally took the spare replaced a good wheel then moved the good wheel where he thought there was still no balance and so on. He was getting done at 9:45pm! I have work in the morning, I already knew I was getting no sleep this night, if only I had paid attention to my instincts, I would have been home already.

Now because it’s his new fancy car, no overlapping. I was getting to Rongai, at 1030pm; when I am normally home by 7.

Furthermore, I am never taking my friend and her man anywhere because I live further. I had to find another means to get me home after they left me halfway my journey. I alighted cursing them in my head- can’t make demands in a car that is not yours but I really did miss my death traps.

I got home at 11pm. My hair was still a bush and I was cold and I just had a shot of whisky just so my head can get back on straight.

My first experience with a Subaru man and I am grateful he is not my man. The next man I see a man with a Subaru I will be grovelling on the ground already because I cannot deal.
