10 Stages of Trying to Find Parking in Oman
Oman might have many great things about it, but parking is definitely not one of them! The parking situation is a big problem in the capital and it’s a source of struggle for many every time they go out.
 
While it might be frustrating at the time, it’s good to find humour in things you can’t do much about.

Here are some thoughts you likely have when looking for parking!

1. The preparation

I don’t have to be there for another hour and a half, but I should probably leave now so I can find a parking space.

Driving

2. Bracing yourself

Just when you’ve reached the parking lot, you cross your fingers and hope there’s an empty spot.

Fingers crossed

3. False hope

Your eyes lighten up when you think you’ve found a parking spot right away, but then you see there’s a motorcycle in it.

False hope

4. The disbelief

How heartless do you have to be to take up two parking spots?!

Throwing a fit

5. Power struggle

7. The bewilderment

8. The annoyance

After all this struggle and you still have to pay for parking…

10. The relief

Finally finding a spot and being the first to put your blinker on gives you an odd sense of satisfaction.

Happy and relieved
