I’m sure all of you who have driven by the Lebanese Highway have noticed the latest political campaign. Well I guess these campaigns have really been targeting – EVERYONE – lately, and by that I mean all levels of IQ, all ages. No brain challenging whatsoever, simple brainwashing-take-you-by-the hand and ‘feed-you-with-a spoon’ messages. I personally felt quite offended to see the exaggerated level of simplicity in the messages of the latest campaign. What do they take us for? If only they invested all those wasted billboards money in teaching the citizens more profitable values – but it’s probably our job to do that.
Careful with the daylight saving time excuse though! Use at your own risk
I can’t stand it anymore to go to public family places and see this “maid” phenomenon. This modern slavery should be abolished. Since when do kids need constant stranger nannying when their parents are perfectly healthy? Unfortunately, the mothers seem to be more interested in their own sex-appeal rather than taking care of their children, and the fathers seem to be more interested in making loads of cash to spend on showing off their fellow citizens. This aspect of our society saddens me very much.
Now you can see why I absolutely love working freelance with (a portion of) lebanese clients. Total professionalism, total awareness of market prices… I’ve tried all ways to get fair offers compared to the amount of work. Let’s say it seldom happens !
