I don’t like driving anyway

““I don’t like to drive” is an entirely different category than “I’m not allowed to drive,” my friends. Please put this justification to rest. Not allowed means that your freedom of movement is entirely up to other people. Not allowed means you can be arrested if you do. Not allowed means that the independence and privacy you so loved back in your home country is gone, because even if you are lucky enough to be able to afford a driver, he will know your every move, he will know your comings and your goings, you will always need to be careful about what you say in front of him, and you can never again turn on the radio and sing to your favorite songs.”

… yes, my dear western wannabe-arab-princesses… you can’t even sing in your car anymore, in the wahabbi paradise … even when you need it so badly!
