Now our maid has been a little more than a week and all I can say is al hamdulilla. I have heard so many stories about maids and this and that but she is truly great. Seeing how she has organised things here I hm kinda realised how disorganised I am. It’s like I don’t have any sense when it comes to order. Where she has put say for example all dvds in one place I had put one here and one there thinking there was a reason for that eeeh yea right. She was sure worth waiting for.
Ah the driving. Yesterday as I was sitting in the car I saw a kid in the car next to me. Behind the wheel. He must have been about 15 years old. A skinny little shit. With 3 friends in the car. Two of them smoking. All sitting there confident as if they were adults. And me, ya childish me, I just felt so insulted that this little shit is allowed to drive and I’m not. I really don’t care that I “got” my license in Beirut only last year and I am not a very skilled driver (nor reckless), I should still have the effing right to drive.
