My Bad Driving Experience

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

My 'Bad Driving' Experience Hurghada seems like a fine place on the outside, but once you find yourself lost at the very centre of this chaotic Egyptian city, I'm sure you view will be a lot different - cars and small taxi-like busses everywhere, all beeping and honking in hope of catching a good customer. - I happened to be in this situation, and "fortunately" I had managed to stop one of the small busses, expecting that the driver could get me home to my hotel, before the hours of darkness. I had only been in the town for one day and, as any other tourist would do on his first day in another country, I was taking a look at the town I was going to stay in.

I was a bit stunned, but I didn't say a thing assuming it was an accident. We got out of the traffic somewhat quickly - it was only a matter of seconds after the head-bumping incident that I found myself on the main road, travelling at a speed, that will make you loose your drivers license if done in my country.

I thought to myself: "This is enough; I want to get off this vehicle right now", and I shouted at the driver what I had just been thinking, but not surprising, the respond I got was: "No problem, no problem". Now I was really getting angry, I looked the man straight in the eye through the rear view mirror and shouted: "All right, Mr. No Problem. If you don't put me off this vehicle right now, I'll do something to your bus!" Luckily the man actually understood this and he chose to do as I said, and drove me to a decent drop-off place, at a nice civilized speed in the right lane. Now I just had to find another taxi. - Here we go again. ?? ?? ?? ?? Bjoern Nielsen, March 24, 2009 734 Words ...read more.
