I realize now why the word 'WAIT' is in the country name of Kuwait. That's all you do here now is wait. What used to be a 20 minute trip has become an hour and a half or more and no end to this problem in sight. It's sad that in a country that seems to have it all there isn't any public transportation except for the city bus. From what I've seen on the outside I don't think buses are at a high standard.
I've watched kids throw huge bricks at them, pull off the window while one was stopped at a light (I reported it to the police and told them where the kids lived but he blew me off) and chaos that goes on inside. I visited Dubai in the summer and walked to the bank in the scorching heat when I found an air conditioned bus stop and thought 'wow, this is great' while being cooled off. Kuwait well, any place is a bus stop, even on the highway!
Now with technology it's even worse as drivers have their heads inside their phones, they sit there when the light turns green and pay 0 attention to what's going on around them. Now we have to pay attention to other people to avoid accidents and it gets worse everyday.
