Detour

The Powers That Be have routed the new 4th Circle detour to run directly in front of our house! This poses a bit of a problem, since the traffic is annoyingly loud and nonstop and I can’t get my car out of the driveway.

Generally the neighborhood is extremely quiet due to the proximity to the Prime Ministry. Now compound the noise and traffic with the extra dust and polution, and I really feel like someone in the government needs to hear from my superior intellect.

By the way, I'm the only American (that I know of) in the neighborhood. Just look for a dashingly handsome guy in his early 30's jogging around the area in the evening.

These detours are SO ANNOYING. Didn't they find a better time to screw the roads up?!

Roba, are you saying that the beginning of summer, with the enormous influx of incoming visitors and traffic, isn't the perfect time to tear up a major intersection and route it through the tiny streets of a nearby neighborhood? Preposterous! The almighty, wise government must know what they are doing.

Actually, if you see an American sitting in his driveway in a lawn chair, throwing rocks at the cars passing by, it means I've cracked completely.

Salam,

Let me guess...Thursday? I was wearing shorts and carrying my camera bag (which looks like a backpack)? We were on our way to Amman Waves for the day.

Here's my projection of the response you'll get if you do march up to the ministry and let them know your thoughts:
Blank look,then an up-and-down appraisal with raised eyebrows and a "Look what the cat dragged in" look,then a shrug and a "What the hell do you think you or we can do about it?!" look.
It's happened to me so many times I've given up trying to change things and just put my head down and try not to notice them.
