Sigh!























You see that 4 digit number suffixed by AED?!

No?

How about now?

2750

That's how much I owe the UAE govt. ( they don't need oil no more! They've got people like me!)

12 speeding and 3 parking tickets.

Obviously, I gotta slow down!

Jay said...

TWELVE speeding tickets?! Jeezuz! Where do you have to be that's so bloody important?!

APOO said...

Buy one of those radar detectors, which will beep when a radar os around.... i think it will be cheaper than 2750 and u can speed away!

Sonia said...

When you say "red" i'm thinking of my bank balance ( which will soon be in major trouble if I don't slow down!)

Jay: My car (Joe) like to go fast, no matter where! So it's not really my fault.

Apoo: Good idea. Lemme see where I can get me one of those!

quills said...

Man..and I thot I drive fast!! Does the speeding tickets also translate into points on your drivers license which means higher insurance premiums?

Sonia said...

quills: omg! i don't KNOW!!! does it??!!! sheesh! now i'm even more worried! i was hoping i cud get through this without my dad knowing!

quills said...

Sorry to frighten you..did not mean that. But out here in North America, that's the way it works unfortunately.

I think the fast and the furious couldn't have looked for a better candidate than you;-)

n.g. said...

of course, some consolation can be taken from the fact that you can ACTUALLY park, which is more than can be said about most female drivers.

And this is going to bring what lifestyle changes? :)

Sonia said...

quills: hmm, i don't think they have that here!

ab: i don't go that fast really. It's just that the speed limit here is too damn low!

you watch out Nish! Joe doesn't like people who make fun of women and their driving skills!

rhyncus: well, i'm going to watch out for those hidden radars, or else invest in one of those nice radar detectors Apoo was talking about.
It's either that or slow down, which really isn't an option!

I told you Soniya, women are bad drivers. The Dubai Police has been saying that for quite some time, and now you have proven it again with this post.
SLOW DOWN!!!! Speed is the no.1 killer. There is an old adage that says "Better late than never", which can also mean "Better arrive 10 minutes late than be dead on time"!! There is this traffic warning sign I saw in Kuwait "Beware: Speed is the fastest way to Prison or Death" that will make any ponder.
And what do you gain by reaching office 10 minutes early, smoke a cigarette and exchange gossip. Was it really worth it?

I LOVED IT! I clipped some of it for my public interest blog if you don't mind, but I linked to your blog and told everyone it was yours, but I just really wanted to get out a different feel in America where everyone is talking about Dubai. I hope it didn't offend you as I am very interested in the funny things going on over here. Tell me if you mind and I'll just delete it. Sincerely, Cynthia

(there's an email link on my blog if you don't want me to link to your post.)

Rhyncus said...

And would watching out for the hidden radars mean taking your eyes off the road? That's another no-no, right?

Sonia said...

zerish: no shit!

anonymous (mannudxb): don't generalize. I'm a good driver. and i'm not gonna believe some anonymous nut who says otherwise.
and fyi, i don't smoke.

Jaggu: :o) i'll take care! and i do intend to keep blogging, though i'm not sure about the club hopping!

anoymous: thanks for the info.

Rhyncus: I can multi-task!

Sonia said...

Oh and Cynthia, nope, i don't mind.
