Default Egg-hurling car-jackers in the UAE????

The following email has just been circulated to all staff at my college.

Hi Everyone,

I want to bring a very serious issue under your attention: This has
happened
to three of our staff members in the last two weeks.

The hi-jackers throw eggs at your vehicle, hoping that you then slow down
and put your wipers on. Once you put your wipers on, you cannot see a
thing.
This is just what the hi-jackers want. They stand a few meters away, and
once you have pulled over, they attack and take your car. Maybe even your
life.

In the event of this happening to you, just keep going. Open your window
slightly, put your head out the window for vision, and just keep driving,
until you are safe.

PS:Kindly forward to all you know. It may just save somebody's LIFE.


I reckon Saaf has arrived in the UAE

Not sure about eggs........but I was a victim of a drive by bageling a few years ago. Very unpleasant being hit by an onion bagel hurled from a car, wasn't even any smoked salmon on it.

Yes...But he didn't use the wipers and so he was spared the hijacking...

I had a kebab thrown at me from a car in Catterick once. It was still warm, and very delicious. Yes, yes.
