Trying to work out if you know the PAE is a joke site or not...

Still, I know everything about Dubai and did within 13 minutes of landing.

Phew.

Yeah it's quality. I especially liked just after sorting my driving license here that someone who'd just turned up told me that I didn't need an eye test or something like that.

One of those awkward moments when you've done something but then get told you can't do it like that.

It's best when you go back to the UK and people say you can't do that in Dubai or something along those lines. Even when you reply that you live in Dubai and you can do something they still disagree with you!

Given up telling people I can drink alcohol here.

Oh well, I forgive UK folk because you don't want to be that tosser that comes back once a year and bleats on about how wonderful it is.

Best is when some of the commenters do not know it is statire and shoot their mouth.

Like this one,

" Katie Price should get an education before she starts suing anyone. The name Jordan is older than her whole ancestry and is mentioned in the bible, not to mention the fact that the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has existed well over 40 years prior to her birth! As a Jordanian I find this article not only insulting but a piss take! "

There's some belters on there.

“I interviewed Chris Froome after the race and he was saying that he reached 80kph on the downhills, or something. How is this news? I’ve done 160 in my Lamborghini in the car park of Burger King. And I didn’t need to dress up like a gay spaceman neither,” he added.

"One of the stupidest articles I’ve ever read. I’ve been living in Qatar for 17 years, although it is very common for people to honk for the “waiter” to get something from the market. But it’s not rare for people to get down to buy their own stuff from the market. I’ve done it so many times and I’m an Arab female. This is not breaking news so to say that the market received it’s first walk-in is an exaggeration. "

With Arab and Asian culture , comments like the above have a high probability of being serious.
