10 Reasons Why: I Dread Driving in the Q8y Summer!

1- When you enter the car… be it day or night, parked in the shade or under the sun, it is exactly like entering a furnace :S

2- Even with the best of cars… the AC will not start blowing cold air until you are 2 minutes away from your destination.

3- Unless you wear gloves, you will be scalded trying to touch anything: Door handles, steering wheel… etc. etc. Same goes for opening the  house door or any kind of door.

4- If your car seats are made of leather… and you are wearing short sleeves/skirt/shorts… be prepared for your skin getting burned upon impact.

5- You would like to drive fast enough to escape the sun… yet you are really not supposed to. The friction cause by the hot asphalt will shred your tires… you must drive slower than usual under the hot sun :S

6- Because of the heat… people are much angrier and very irrational… avoid human interaction on the road, it could get very very ugly.

7- For some reason people think it’s ok to stop their cars in the middle of the road to grab some ice cream or cold water bottles… so what if it was in the middle of a busy roundaboubt causing a  horrible traffic Jam?

8- When you need to fill your tank, even at night time, you will need to turn off your car engine(and the AC)… those five minutes are equivelant to an hour in a sauna room. My advice? Fill your car 1 KD at a time…

9- Drive thrus are out of the question. If you have to open your car window -to take a parking ticket for example- it is torture and there is a good chance you will have two mismatched arms color wise…

10- When you are FINALLY home, flushed from the heat and sweating all over, you run to have a shower and cool off… but you will find that there is nothing but scalding hot water… even if your father had shut the hot water off and kept the Water Tanks in a brick room on their own. Only hot water in the summer comes with the territory.
