Raise your hand if you’ve ever whinged about taking the public transport, escpecially the Dubai Metro.
We’re all humans, we get it. Even if we don’t want to, we end up taking things for granted.
But, this one tweet by a Dubai resident, who goes by the name of @DubaiNameShame on Twitter will open your eyes.
It perfectly encapsulates how commuting in Dubai by the public transport, especially the metro, is actually a cakewalk.
You think you know what commuter hell is?
You think YOU have commuter hell? Crammed passengers clog every inch of platform, jump on Mumbai train before it stops and cling to its doors .. we complain about our Metro! pic.twitter.com/OjIoZ7AVKp

That’s the GIF of the Mumbai local trains at the peak hour.
If the statistics are to be believed, Mumbai local trains kill more people than terrorist attacks in India, as per the Maharashtra railway police.
At least 3,880 people lost their lives between January 2016 and July 2017 alone due to local train-related accidents.
That’s quite a staggering number
On the contrary, Dubai local transport is easily becoming one of the best in the world. No seriously, we’ve got proof!
So, the next time you complain, we hope you’ll remember how easy we have it here.
