Whether you love it or hate it, you've all complained about Lebanon at least once (or 100 times) in your life. It's excusable, given the political unrest, power outages, water shortages, corruption, and... well the list is endless. What's surprising though, is you often find yourself missing this incomplete country and these are several things that you might catch yourself reminiscing about.
1. Power outages
Other countries have too much of it anyway
2. Political rivalry
We love being kept on our toes
3. Family feuds
How else would you resolve the inequality of land if you didn't resort to violence and the silent treatment?
4. Traffic & potholes
Damage looks great on our cars
5. Road rage
Gives us an opportunity to let off some steam
6. Beach entrance fees
Because $25+ entrance fee is normal
7. Cat calls
Blind dates and friendly introductions are too mainstream
8. Useless stoplights
Their constant flickering contribute to the vibrant city lights
9. Slow internet
A YouTube video a day is more than enough
10. "School's out" rush hour
Our afternoons wouldn't be the same without screaming children and an excess of school busses
11. Lack of parking spots
It's so much fun waiting in your car for the person that double parked next to you to move his
12. Garbage and pollution
Fresh air makes the breeze appear incomplete
13. Negative/corrupt people
People actually enjoy being lied to, cheated on, and stolen from.
