Multitasking Gone Wrong


Okay, I know that Cairo traffic has become truly appalling, but this is a bit over the top. While on my way home from Maadi today, we were crawling along in dense traffic when I noticed that the driver in the car next to me was on the phone AND reading the newspaper at the same time. Notice that this was the DRIVER of the car, not a passenger. I hauled out my mobile phone and snapped his photo while my driver laughed hysterically and then suggested that we change lanes before there were reprisals. Life on the roads of Egypt is not for the faint of heart!

Don't even get me started on trying to cross the street in Egypt! Scary indeed.

Wow! He was great(just kidding). Here in Indonesia, some car's drivers often reading or sending sms while they are riding their car, I really don't agree with them its can caused big trouble for others and also themself of course.

I laughed so hard at this! I've seen this before, actually I've been in taxis with the driver doing this. Pretty crazy place! The roads are lawless!
