Please Sound Horn!

” Please Sound Horn”

I never knew, this is such an important thing to get a driving License here in UAE, where you hardly hear the sound of Horn as almost everyone behaves on thrilling roads here. I used to read on the back of every vehicle in India ” Please Sound Horn” that you won’t get to see in Dubai or any emirates in UAE.

My wife made an inadvertent silly mistake by not giving a Horn to the person who is way too far from the main road during the Driving Test. I can only realize the situation, if she could have blown a horn at that instance, would have made that person into panic because we hear the horn only when someone is going to clash before or after the accident here.

You see, it’s really hard to get a Driving License on first or second attempt especially in Gulf countries as they don’t oversee any simple or silly mistakes except for the Locals here, which makes us feel having a loose thread to bound with this Country for some time, but later we feel comfortable for living in such a organize country, Alhumdulillah.

    My examiner further commented by saying, “You are a good driver, but not safe for pedestrians.” 😀

    ~ I agree, you are good driver. Ammi is cursing those examiners till now :p

    I don’t know how it goes out there but here the examiners have thousands of reasons to fail you, and it only seems that the driving test is a formality. You even have to stop at a red line that was drawn some 50 years back and is hardly visible now, and you have to stop there for 30 seconds, look at both your sides to make sure no one is coming (at the test site where there isn’t anyone supposed to be roaming around…).

    This reminded me of “Road King” on Trucks and “Maa Ki Dua” on auto-rickshaws :

    Yeah, right..LOL

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
