All together nowI wear the speedos that make the young girls cry:-)
Do Police officers in Dubai accept “Bribes” ?Apparently, YES!So this friend of ours was in a taxi being driven down to Sharjah, the cab guy skips a light at the Galadhari cross roads and changes three lanes in a go. The cab got pulled over and the Cops came over and wanted to arrest this guy. Not the Driver, but the passenger,(Brown passenger).The cops asked him if he was drinking, (remember he was not in Sharjah yet, still a few hundred meters away from the border), The guy freaked out so he offers a bribe, AED 1,800 that he happened to have in his pocket. And guess what, the Uniformed Dubai Police Officer accepts it and lets him go.Now we understand that corruption is endemic in this region, however is it acceptable to fleece the underprivileged? Oh allk right this over paid brown guy we are taling about is not part of the ,”underprivileged”, but WTF? Well Dubai is progressing and ……Dubai = a wanna be First world country?Dubai = stereotypical Arab nation with nothing new to offer.Regards,Surprised Sheep Productions
