A weeks ago, i took a cab from Achrafieh to Hamra and for some reason the driver decided to go into one of the inner roads thinking it’s a good shortcut. Anyway, he was recklessly speeding in one of Achrafieh’s tight roads when a car coming out of an underground parking surprises him and he managed somehow to stop the car before hitting her.

Both drivers were mistaken as he was speeding carelessly and the woman driver did not bother check her right before going out, but the discussion that occured next between the driver and the woman made me wanna go down and give the woman a good slap.

Driver: Chou beke ya 3amme tal3a mitil 2ejrik??

Woman: Bassita, Bassita …

Driver: Eh Bassita, ma inta assurance “touriste” (he meant tout risque lol) chou fer2a ma3ik? ana bit3attal wou inte ekhir hammik.

Woman: Khallas, Mouhem ma 7ada sarlo chi.

Woman: Aslan bta3rif, khallik we2if, tali3 3a bele chouf 3ala 2adde zamatna, badde farjiya la as7abe.

(Then the driver just drove away).
