‘Hurry up taxi, the heat is ruining my hair…’
I’d like to raise a query with the RTA about the availability of taxis on Fridays.
For many weeks now I’ve experienced the horrendous situation of having to wait a long time for a taxi to take me to brunch on a Friday. I live in a beautiful apartment on Emaar Boulevard, a place I chose as it’s so central and close to all the local amenities. I have no problem getting taxis any other day of the week but the day when I take hours to get ready and often have a hairdresser come round to style my hair, I just can’t seem to get one, meaning I have to wait around in my expensive dress with make-up melting on my face which really is not good for my skin.
Being lucky enough to have age on my side and having good genes, I still manage to arrive at brunch looking good (always receiving compliments as well!) but I do feel sorry for people who do have their appearance destroyed in the midday heat and wonder if there could be a priority service for people who made the effort to get somewhere on time.
