Twice I have nearly been hit by cig­a­rette butts

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle ‘Care­less ten­ants are risk­ing lives’ I have come across such an act of throw­ing cig­a­rettes off bal­conies twice - and it was just a near miss by God’s grace and bless­ings. While walk­ing on the pave­ment in the busy streets of Bur Dubai, twice burnt cig­a­rette butts fell once in front of me, once just missed my hair/head. What would have hap­pened if it had fallen on my hair/dress with syn­thetic fab­ric, it would have burnt me down. What if it had fallen on a kid or into a pram of a baby or a gro­cery trol­ley? Its quite a risky thing. But peo­ple are neg­li­gent, ar­ro­gant and care­less. So scary to live in a high rise in UAE. Shanti Dubai
