This is the time of the year we look forward to, as it’s the time for us to relax, take a break from work and perhaps even travel.
Just because summer is great, doesn’t mean it doesn’t come armed with things we absolutely hate! And in Saudi the problems seem to be magnified by the immense heat. With that being said, here are 11 things we hate about summer.
1. The need for multiple showers in a day
And the worst part is that as soon as we step out of the shower, we start sweating again!
2. The traffic in the night
Cause it’s just too hot to go shopping during the day.
3. Sitting in the car after it’s been parked in the sun
And if you accidentally touch any metal objects in the car, get ready for scalds.
4. People seem to get angered easily
You probably are better off keeping those jokes to a minimum. Sorry to tell you, but not everyone will find you funny.
5. Everyone seems to be on a vacation but you!
Those Facebook and Instagram updates seem to make it worse for you. I don’t want to see those pictures of you in Paris or Rome all laughing and having fun! Wait you know what, I am just going to block you!
6. The air conditioning is being stubborn.
Just because it’s on for long hours, doesn’t mean it can break down during the summer. Not cool! Literally!
7. We are forced to stop wearing jeans
They stick! Dark colors don’t help either, so try to get a light color clothes. There’s an excuse to go shopping.
8. Our glasses constantly fogging up
Especially when you step out of the air-conditioned car.
9. The pricey electricity bill
Even though we have the cheapest electricity rates in the world, we still get shocked when we receive our monthly bill.
10. The stench
And those sweat stains make them worse.
11. Even ice cream melts faster
And we end up ruining our clothes with those dripping ice creams. So sweat stains and ice cream stains, how awesome!
