There are a lot of wrong things about this initiative, such as:
- Why only female workers?
- Shouldn’t the MOT organize such trips for school students first or Lebanese in general?
- Mistresses may force domestic workers to waste their only day off, Sunday, to visit Jeita and vote for it.
Everything about this new7wonders competition is proving to be wrong day after day. It would be interesting to make a poll to see how many Lebanese visited Jeita Grotto.
So a new burger place opened in Lebanon and I’m not sure if the owner is aware or not but his logo is a blatant rip-off of Johnny Rockets. Johnny Rockets is a popular US franchise that’s available all over the Middle East and they were even open in Lebanon back in the late 90s before they closed down. I remember before they closed down they were having incredible offers on their burgers. If you were a student you could have a burger for LL1,500 which was ridiculously cheap considering Coke cost LL4,500.
When Najib posted about it I thought it was silly but I got to try their new forks this past weekend and I was like WTF? At first I thought they might have given me the salad or appetizer fork but turns out these small forks are their standard forks. Someone at Roadster must have made a mistake when placing an order for new cutlery and now we’re all stuck with these. On the bright side their light grilled chicken dish is amazing and healthy. I literally wipe the plate clean, even the broccoli tastes good. Just make sure you order a side of honey mustard with it (note: Roadster this should come with it by default).
I was happy to get to work in less than 25 minutes today, but I did not understand why there was no traffic at all. Only schools are off on All Saints day while all businesses and universities are open. Is it possible that schools are causing all this traffic everyday?
It doesn’t really make sense as you don’t see that many school buses from Jounieh to Beirut and most of the traffic schools cause is around the school not on the highway.
Nevertheless, if that’s the case, then the solution to everyday traffic is quite simple:
- Either let schools start an hour early or let businesses and universities start at 9 am.
