We’re all guilty of it; hoping for perfect, new lives in Dubai that will bring us happiness, glorious weekends, a cracking tan and plenty of activities and entertainment to indulge in.
We were all very, very wrong.
Well, happy? Yes. New lives? They’re great fun! A cracking tan? Questionable for most. But there is most definitely a catch. And that’s a Dubai summer.
We’re all pretty much uncomfortable for at least seven months of the year here in the sandpit.
So we’ve scoured the Internet for some of the best memes that truly sum up what life is like during summer here. Enjoy!
1. When the ice cream truck is melting, too...
Best to eat your ice cream indoors - it will be gone the moment you step outside!
2. When the steering wheel should be approached with caution...
Even this isn't enough some days!
3. When your perfectly blow-dried hair goes
What has Dubai's summer got against our hair?
4. We're convinced this is where Dubai really exists
And that's just if it isn't actually a little closer...
5. It's not something to celebrate
This is exactly how we feel every summer!
6. Let's bake something! It's hot outside!
Well, by the time you're done with that meeting there will be snacks waiting for you in your car!
7. The difference between tourists and residents
Meh - what heat? The weather is just perfect!
8. Fun in the bathroom... Ouch!
It goes from the one extreme to another: from freezing cold to boiling hot!
9. The struggle is real
And then people wonder why we're always carrying jackets around!
10. It's ALWAYS hot water!
We just want to cool down with a cold shower!
