7 Things That Did Not Change In Lebanon Since 2012!

Lebanese Twitter is exploding with this tweet: While most people are posting their puberty and post-puberty pictures, a Lebanese tweet tweeted this:

Here are 7 things that stayed the same in from 2012!

#1 Roads

When will the roads in get asphalted when it is needed, not only before municipal elections?

New investment in infrastructure including roads.

#2 Electricity

The power outage in is the definition of commitment; it goes like clockwork. Go on and visit all the countries in the world: you will never find electricity that operates better than a fine Swiss watch. The electricity in is like:

New powerplant is opening and will offer 5 hours of additional electricity.

#3 Lebanese series

Lebanese producers and directors should have learned in the past 5 years that women do not wake up with makeup on and that people do not have fancy breakfasts. Things are getting worse and worse.

#4 Governmental procedures

Doing paperwork is by far the most hated thing in . If you’ve never been in a ministry to do some procedures, here’s a brief explanation of the hell that people go through. It’s like playing snakes and ladders; you keep climbing and falling.

The first person you meet on the ground floor will send you to the third floor. Then another person will tell you to go to the second floor and so on and so forth.

#5 Internet

It’s still slow but not slower than politicians deciding on a new electoral law.

Quicker and cheaper internet has been introduced in Lebanon.

#6 Traffic

It’s better to get used to traffic jams and start getting used to spending most of your time in your car.

#7 Our great sense of humor

This is the only thing that should never change. Laughing off things that make us mad, like the ones mentioned above, is our coping mechanism.
