Have been meaning to blog about this one for a while:
Jet Driver took a trip to Markaz Al Bahja a while back, and witnessed the following scenario unfurl on an otherwise dreary day.
In an effort to expedite his arrival, one of the ROP Fire Service trucks, while on its way to an incident (sirens and blue lights a-go-go), attempted to rat-run through the car park at MAB, only to find that some inconsiderate twat, had parked, or should I say abandoned, their vehicle by the side of the road - thereby blocking the route for the truck.
Then, as the truck attempted to reverse out of this predicament, a black jeep with three women inside, drove up the inside of the truck......and parked - with all three females summarily disembarking and heading towards the mall - oblivious to the fact that they had just blocked the truck from reversing.
It gets better.....
In a panicked effort to get the attention of said women, the driver goes to get out and call them, only to find that he now cannot get the door open! So the guy in the passenger side, who has now discovered that he has the same problem, gets ordered out the window.
Then, as everyone stands there gawping and distracted, three more cars come and park behind the jeep!
Loads of screaming, arm-waving and finger-pointing later, there was still no sign of anyone's car being moved.
At that stage, a now near doubled-over Jet Driver walked the 50 metres to his car, and drove away along the back road.
This place is so random.
