Is it just me or does Ramadhan tend to bring out the worst in people??
Bazaar just came out and in my top ten list this month, I wrote down that one thing I love about this month is how much calmer it makes everyone seem... And you know what? I used to believe that... (Does anyone but me notice that the word believe contains the word 'lie' right in the middle of it?? spooky!) Anyway, I believed it up until last night when I encountered the most horrific and blood-boiling traffic jam I have ever been in.
It was on al-bidi3 road.. the traffic was stopped at the al-rumaithiya light and NOBODY was moving... I swear, I was four cars from the light and the light must have changed twenty times without us even moving an inch!! What the hell?? At first, I thought maybe the traffic was backed up from the al-bidi3 circle (what with all the construction going on) but noooooooo... it was backed up for no discernable reason! There were cops parked in the middle of the road and they were trying to direct traffic, but only ended up making it worse....
We must have sat at the light for thirty minutes and of course kuwaitis, with their infinite patience, were climbing over the divider (i6igoon ri9eef!) and forcing everyone to get out of their way. This chick (I'd call her something else, but I'm fasting) just rammed into my car! She had been sitting behind me for the last fifteen minutes, we hadn't moved an inch, I was in PARK and she rams into me! I was too upset to even get out of the car and see what happened so I ignored it. Then, to add insult to injury, when we finally got moving this car swerves into me (As if he/she can't see my big-a** gold GMC) and scraps off a piece of my bumper!! What the hell, people??
Ramadhan is supposed to be about forgiveness and high morals so I let both of the idiots who rammed me off without so much as an obscene hand gesture... Allah Kareem... But I ain't driving anywhere but to work and Starbucks ( Anything for Starbucks :D) for the rest of the month!
