Driver wants to thank men who came to her aid

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

I was at the park in Kwawa­neej this evening when I man­aged to get my car stuck in the sand. I felt re­ally dumb for let­ting that hap­pen in the first place. Two young gen­tle­men came to help. Un­for­tu­nately, it was worse than they thought. Then, an­other gen­tle­man of­fered to pull my car with his tow rope. Af­ter suc­cess­fully pulling my car out, the un­der­car­riage came loose. He went above and be­yond. He left to pick up his me­chanic and brought him back with a jack, so that he could re­pair or re­place the part. I am so grate­ful for the kind­ness of oth­ers. We hear so much about the hate and cru­elty go­ing on in the world to­day I feel like it is worth tak­ing the time to pub­licly thank Mo­hammed and oth­ers for their gen­eros­ity tonight. Shukran.

For some­one who has lived in Dubai for five years they should be well aware of the tran­sit na­ture of this great country. Why should you ex­pect to be treated any dif­fer­ent here than else­where? Debt is a per­sonal choice and bor­row­ing money from the bank in the form of credit cards or loans is solely down to you. If you don’t want that re­spon­si­bil­ity, ei­ther live within you means or move to a country you can af­ford to live. Many peo­ple find them­selves able to live well in Dubai with­out rack­ing up huge debts and with­out ‘liv­ing the life style’. So take a long hard look. Tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity Dubai (near the Al Manama hyper­mar­ket). Dur­ing the peak evening hours lots of peo­ple cross the pedes­trian cross­ing, which is with­out a sig­nal. The cars have to halt be­cause of pedes­trian pri­or­ity. The ve­hi­cles get piled up till the main road (Sheikh Khal­ifa Bin Zayed Street). Now since the traf­fic sig­nal is in­stalled, the pedes­tri­ans can cross in small groups. This would en­able a faster move­ment of cars. Once again a big thank you to the RTA for ac­cept­ing my sug­ges­tion. Wish the team the best for the fu­ture. 7DAYS Reader Dubai
