Wherever I go, all I hear is nag, nag, nag.  What I would like to see more is act, act, act. It’s easy to complain about how life was so much better abroad. Well, then why are you here? Why don’t you just go back abroad if it was that much better? I must say it was somewhat fun to watch three middle-aged men sharing a nag session at the bank while waiting in a long queue. It was actually fun to the point that I turned off my iPod to watch them complain. The nag process usually starts with a catalyst: the first nagging element/person. All the other naggers naturally follow. I so wish it was the other way round. If for every person who acted, or tried to make a difference, the others followed, our situation would be so improved. But well, I guess a lot of us take the easy way out…

    You’re nagging about nagging :D

    Do what I do: pretend you’re a foreigner and wait for the special treatment! We may complain quite a lot, but we’re always eager for a chance to impress.

    “If your house is made out of glass, don’t throw rocks at other people”. Direct translation FTW. :)

    Okay, so I here I go.

    I have been following your blog for a bit more than a month now, and heard of it through Samar Haddad, who is my office room partner and good friend. You do not know me and I do not know you any more than through what I know from this blog and the nowlebanon interview. El 7aaslo. I am another fan who follows this blog almost daily, and now that I am actually typing a comment down, I realised that never before was there a real reason why I could not have done this earlier.

    El 7aaslo (again). This is just to inform you that this specific entry gave flesh to an idea that haunts me like crazy, and that I was very happy to see it in the flesh here.

    Hi, i got convinced between 2000 and 2002, that this country will never change…i left end of 2003…everytime i come back to see my friends and family i remember why i left, and why i feel happy being in a foreign country

    Lebanese don’t want to change the country :
    - they are happy to get bribed, and bribe people so their work goes faster than the other one’s who don’t have enough money to bribe.
    - they are happy to drive 200 km/h on a highway of 100 km/h, they feel they rule the world and kill hundreds every year.
    - they are happy to throw their garbage on the street, that way they feel they are more powerfull than mother Earth.
    - …

    The reason to all these things is that lebanese are EGOCENTRICALY SELFISH…
