Default Rich beggers

Men in luxury cars ask Dubai pedestrians for petrol money

I actually had this happen to me about three weeks ago. He was from Qatar and was driving a landcruiser and he pulled up next to me at the Global Village Emarat.

Being the charitable person that I am, I told him to f-off. He then proceeded to drive around the petrol station asking everyone.

Those asking for funds were spotted in top-end cars such as a Bentley, Chrysler 300 and Ford Explorer.

I wish mate.

I had to threaten to fill up my own fuel the other day to get one of the attendants to ****ing do something. Bearing in mind one of the things I liked about the Exploder is that it's a right-hand-side petrol cap so queues are minimal it took me 23 minutes to get fuel. There were two at the pumps and then one other+me waiting.

I got out and tried to do my own and the bloke snatched it off me and said wait two minutes. I got back in the motor and he just stood around counting his money and doing **** all.

I'd genuinely rather fill my own.

I don't get what it is with all these queues at petrol stations. Seems to be all over this part of the world and I hardly see such things anywhere else. Anybody would think it's rationed here or some such.

Something to do with the fact there is only a dozen or so petrol stations in Doha.

Sounds like somebody's missing a trick then. Okay so petrol is not exactly an excellent profit centre I suppose but a station with 'facilities' could be quite a good business. Given the general sense of impatience it seems curious that spending time in a petrol queue is almost normal.

I tried and he took it off me and told me to wait.

That may have had something to do with me swearing at him for being a useless fat ****, but he still wouldn't let me.

From the comments section in the article.

Recently, it happened to me when I was coming out from Fruit & Vegetable Market on 25th June, 2013. A Saudi national driving 4x4 full option down my building requested me to stop. I was having the feeling that he might have lost the way but he asked me that he is out of money and if I can help him. I gave him 200AED usman, sharjah, United Arab Emirates
What....?!
