We hate to say this, but autos are our lifeline. They’re fast, have a knack of handling traffic during peak hours far better than cars, and are, honestly speaking, quite fun to roam around in. There are some days when we absolutely thank the universe for having the ubiquitous auto driver in our lives; on other days, we just feel like biting their heads off. It happens to you too, right? Just for fun, we decided to recap the conversations every Indian girl has with auto drivers at some point in her life!

Just when you are rushing to go to work, or there is an emergency, your friendly auto driver decides to dawdle. When you’re okay for time, though, he’s practising his skills for Formula One and you’re screaming: “Dheerey, boss, dheerey!”
And he says: “Madam, maachis hain, beedi bhi chahiye?” #AwkwardMoment
It’s always kich kich when we want our money back. Or it’s khulla-nahin-and-whizzing-off time.
Let’s just say we’re glad there isn’t any Himesh playing on that tape.

When you’re desperate enough to agree to be the sixth person in a shared auto in Calcutta. It’s futile to beg him to drive carefully, you know, but you still gotta ask.

And you say: “Bhaiya, aap gutkha khaoge toh aap ko throat cancer hoga.”
Delhi girls, you’ll understand why this is ABSURD!
My 10 rupees. MINE. I will fight for it.

And that’s why you carry pepper spray in Delhi.
That’s a man who’s soon going to learn all about the power of a woman’s lungs and the range of her vocabulary.
That radio-volume argument sure drains your energy.
Argh, hate it when we’re desperate enough for transport to still have to climb in.
