My BAJD Contribution

I know this is a day late, but I had to contribute and I couldn't get myself to write this post yesterday. Anyway, I liked the style Kinzi took when she wrote her post, so I will try and use it as well. I always have to add the humorous twist to the thing, so here it is.

  • Where else is there a place with a name mistaken for a basketball player?
  • Where else would you find the traditional meal made from dried yoghurt, rice and meat?
  • Where else would you find the rarest type of humans, the cheating, lying, thieving, ugly, single-celled-brained taxi drivers?
  • Where else could you get anything you wanted if you walked into a shop and ranted like a man possessed?
  • Where else would a country's national television station get the lowest audience ever?
  • Where else would you find such bad customer service and quality and such rude and incompetent customer service staff?
  • Where else would having a 'wasta' or not could lead to your life or death?
  • Where else would you find such a wide range of socially acceptable options once you've finished school - '6ib aw handaseh'?
  • Where else would you wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of a weddings gunfire?
  • Where else would you use your car horn more?
  • Where else would there be a national holiday because it was supposed to snow?

Welcome to Jordan! And if anyone has another one, feel free to add it in the comments section.

  3. Brialiant!
    I always like the part about taxi drivers, its like music to my ears. I will arrange for a meeting between you and some of them so that you can tell them you opinion exactly:)
    I hope there are no taxi drivers reading this blog.
