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.
2. Bracing yourself
Just when you’ve reached the parking lot, you cross your fingers and hope there’s an empty spot.
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.
4. The disbelief
How heartless do you have to be to take up two parking spots?!
5. Power struggle
If I was in charge, you would get a fine… and you… everyone gets a fine!
6. The shock
You did NOT just steal my spot!
7. The bewilderment
Some people have no idea how to park, it's a mystery how they even passed their driving test.
8. The annoyance
After all this struggle and you still have to pay for parking…
9. Giving up
When you start to wonder why you even left your house…
10. The relief
Finally finding a spot and being the first to put your blinker on gives you an odd sense of satisfaction.
