Don’t hang stuff out the back


ImagePeople here don’t hang stuff out of the back of a truck.  For example, carrying some 16′ long pieces of lumber?  Hang them out the back of the bed of the truck in the US, but maybe put a red rag or flag on them for safety, right?  Not so here.  We lean stuff over the CAB of the trucks here…. keeping the peeps behind you safe from accidentally running into the long stuff.  Which they certainly would do, having observed their driving habits…….  Just another of the odd things that I’ve noticed here in Dubai – not bad, actually, I really like this idea.  Just different from the US, that’s all.
