There are guys who will get your bike ready for parceling by wrapping your head lights with sack and cardboard to prevent cracking while loading and unloading . So forget about your bike , it will be loaded into the next train for destination.
Now the story part ...
The packing guy asked my friend
"Sir , how much petrol is in the bike ?"
My friend replied casually
"Barely half liter " .
So he came with a empty Aquafina bottle and a small hose .He fitted it inside the valve .Seconds passed and the one liter bottle became full. My friend was confident that there may be one or two drops more .So the man again came with another one liter Biselleri bottle .This time also he was lucky that the second bottle also became full . My friend now got into the depths of despair . At last the man was able to draw nearly three and a half liters of petrol from my friends bike .He moved all the three bottles hid it inside their resting place and came back with sack and card board ready to pack .
In the mean time my friend inquired about when the bike will reach Trivandrum .He said that it will be loaded into the very next train .So that’s fine , but the double despair part is coming only.
Once the parcel reaches the destination ,until we go and collect it we need to pay Rs.10/- per hour as additional charge. In case of my friend he will reach Trivandrum only on Tuesday .So five days ,
5* 24 * 10 = 1200.00 rupees .
So the best part is we asked the packing guys to put the petrol back and we gave him a liter of Petrol free . We drove back happily and he will be driving his bike all way back .
