Driving experience, Jordan VS England

Driving experience: Jordan Vs England

Nadia abu al-raghed talking about her driving experience in Jordan and England, I guess it's worthy to
have a look as she's giving a very good example of driving experience differences.

  1. Jad, let me know it's in Arabic before the positive anticipation sets in! By now the roundabouts in England give me a greater heart attack than in Amman ANY day. They just assume everyone is going to obey the laws of the road!

    I'm having a blast driving in small American corn country. The speed limit is 35mph, and even teenage boys go slow. (Everything is slow!). If you want to turn left, unofficial rules dictate you don't turn in front of anyone you can see coming no matter how many miles away it is. Seriously, ten Jordanians could turn without even causing the oncoming car to slam the brakes on. I guess it is 'extreme personal space'.

    I miss Amman!

  2. I'm sorry to say, or make a big deal out of it but such people absolutely sicken me!

    This doesn't do any good but augmenting this intimidation people, and mostly Arabs have towards the western culture, and the British in specific. I seriously didn't find ANYthing of a good use in this whole feature. She didn't do a proper comparsion, she just complained about "3333ammmman" that nobody gives a damn to street signs. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? People in the UK wear the seat belt just because of the same reasons one of the lovely ladies commented on the page. They fine you ?1000, guess you don't want that to happen everyday, right?

    And going back to this whole intimidation issue,
    this is something I've been thinking about lately to share my ideas with you guys.

    Thanks for the feature Jad,

  3. Matalqa should be hiring this lady for a possible Liffi-Liffi short-film sequel!

    Though driving in the non-congested towns of England is a doddle, but try driving in London or Birmingham and you?ll find yourself squeezing out literal translations of all road-rage related Arabic swearwords.

    On a bit deeper take, her analogy of Amman (a city) vs. England (a Country) is fundamentally flawed. But she?s quiet right about the trouble of driving a small car in a city littered with big cars! However, they (the littered big cars) are not Hummers & SUVs as she deludingly observed, if anything: mini-buses, trucks & occasionally tractors!

    Besides, the disciplined manner of driving in England is mentally demanding & can cause accidents too?

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
