They say, the richer you get, the more brain cells you lose. Probably you would agree after reading this short story. However, the non-fictional central character of this story isn't a rich dimwit, but an utterly frustrated, helpless soul.
It all began in the town of Quingdao in China. There was a man blessed with wealth, enough of it to afford himself the automotive luxuries that others could only dream about. One day he bought himself a sparking new jet black Lamborghini Gallardo - a V10 engined sports car that was the object of desire for many. But as months passed, the jealous eyes of the mortals in Quingdao started weakening the wealthy man's prized possession.
The black beauty wouldn't start even after repeated attempts to crank her up. It seemed that the only solution lied with the hermits at Lamborghini. The man poured in more wealth to have his beloved Gallardo towed in by Lamborghini's men to the Lamborghini mansion in China. However, the journey did not go too well. The beautiful Gallardo was damaged. Something had happened on the way that the wealthy man did not know about.
He wasn't happy. He raised his voice and knocked on every window of the Lamborghini mansion, but none answered. No one talked of what had happened for neither wanted to take responsibility of the damage done. How could they damage something so beautiful, especially when it came from their own factory. The wealthy man decided to take up is problem with Gallardo's ultimate creator and the supreme head of the Lamborghini clan. His name was Stephen Winklemann, but everyone at Lamborghini called him the 'CEO'. The wealthy man sent him multiple letters and tried varied forms of modern communication, but the CEO never replied to any.
Finally, the wealthy man's anger knew no bounds. His anger generated enough heat to summon the devil from hell. With fire in his eyes and wrath rushing through his veins, the enraged man swung a heavy hammer on the Gallardo's head. He hammered down his beloved until it started breaking apart. On lookers witnessed the act with fright while other devilish mortals added helping hands and hammers to the destruction. The wealthy man destroyed what he so loved and hoped this destruction would make Lamborghini take notice and necessary actions. Did Lamborghini respond to his plight? Or was this event lost in the sands of time? To be continued...
