Thoughts you get While Stuck in Beirut Traffic
(Did you know?) 5 months ago

Whether it's postponing our drive back home to avoid afternoon rush hour or making it to the office insanely early to avoid morning traffic, we've all tried desperately hard to avoid sitting in our car in the scorching sun, flipping through tedious radio stations. These are just a few thoughts you may find running through your mind while waiting for the Hyundai in front of you to budge.

 

If only cars could fly. I'd be done running errands and back by now.

 

I should have peed before I left. Maybe those three trips to the water cooler at work weren't such a good idea.

 

Honking won't get you through any quicker. Why are Lebanese people adamant about creating noise pollution?

 

Gross 3amo in the car next to me is picking his nose. Why is it that all taxi drivers pick their nose? I get that they're bored but could that really be their only source of entertainment?

 

"He better not hit my mirror," - as motorbike squeezes through the tight lanes.

 

Does Crepaway deliver to the middle of Kaslik's highway? I've been seriously craving their Salsalada lately? I bet I can recreate the recipe myself. Need to remember to get avocados on my way home.

 

I need to invest in a motorcycle

 

 

Can I pre-tan from the car? My tan is starting to fade. Beach this weekend. I'll hit up the squad. But we better head out before 10 or we'll definitely hit traffic 3 times worse than this.

 

Is there a decent beach in Lebanon that doesn't break the bank? Speaking of bank...

 

 

Do I have snacks hidden anywhere in the car? I'm eating a bit too much. Don't look down at your crunched belly. Oh god. I have to go to the gym today. If I get out of this god-awful traffic that is

 

I should have brought a nail file.

 

My foot is starting to cramp up

 

I'm calling Careem from now on

 

 

 

Wait are we moving?! OMG we're actually moving! FREEDOM!!
