Yesterday the sky opened up and rain began to fall across the country.
And showers in Dubai mean one thing; traffic, and plenty of it.
The lunch time trade for food delivery is massive, which meant yesterday, thousands of lunch deliveries ran late, and many unhappy residents took to Twitter questioning the late service.
Traffic was a disaster
A sprinkle of rain in dubai. So of course the traffic”s turned psychotic for no reason

The wait was longer than usual and people were not happy
I might not be the biggest fan of @Deliveroo_ae at the moment. Waiting for my food from a restaurant that’s less than 10 mins away from my place for the past 1 hr & 20 mins to be precise. Ps. It said 30-40 mins. Thank you.

Careem Now even shut services for a brief period for the safety of their drivers
But a special shout out to the delivery drivers in Dubai who make the journeys rain, hail or shine
