The first thing people do when the Zombie Apocalypse hits is try to get out of town. So whether you’re a masochist, or your friend has some blackmail material on you, do not, under any circumstances, go to the airport if you yourself are not traveling. You will get caught in the endless traffic of those scrambling to escape for the long weekend.
Ordering Food Delivery For those 48 Hours.
The key word for surviving National and Liberation Day unscathed is by having your doomsday rations ready. Prepare well in advance by stocking your cupboards and closets with whatever food and beverages you may need. Forget about ordering delivery – unless you want to subject some poor driver to the relentless onslaught of foam and water gun attacks. If you’re stubborn though, order away, but be prepared to wait hours on end for what will surely be cold, soggy food.
The Hunger Games it ain’t. That said, Katniss Everdeen would not be able to get out either unscarred or unscathed from a trip down The Arabian Gulf Road on Liberation and National Days. Cars will stop for no reason. Children will spray your car with all kinds of liquids. Foam will be sprayed on you if you venture onto this treacherous road.
Rolling down your car window.
If you just HAVE to experience the thrill of being caught up in the bumper to bumper traffic, blaring car horns, bull horns, water guns, water balloons, and foam cans then please, for the love of God, do it in a car. Preferably one with all windows and doors securely locked.
Any and All Malls.
Just as sure as vampires avoid the sunlight, so do National and Liberation day revelers. Your best bet to get anything done or bought is to do so before 6 pm at the very latest.
Any small child.
The kids love this day of mayhem and mischief. But be forewarned; they are all armed with water guns or water balloons or foam cans and they’re not afraid to use them. As for all of those jumping to defend the little ones, think they’re adorable and are as precious as porcelain dolls, just remember this: Chucky was a doll too.
Being busted by a cop while in possession of a can of foam or water gun.
Just as sure as winter is coming for the Starks and a Lannister always pays his debts, if you are careless with a can of foam or a water gun, you will get busted by the PoPo.
Let’s face it – we ain’t living on the mean streets of some gritty, urban crime ridden city. This ain’t the Wire and you ain’t no Omar Little. That said, should you choose to get some emergency cash, try not to get hit in the crossfires of water guns. And who wants to walk around with soggy cash?
Working late the night before.
Grab a sleeping bag, rations, reading material and your charger and get ready for a Candy Crush Saga marathon on your camp out at the office. Don’t expect to go anywhere until the break of day as some of the locals like to get a head start on the celebrations.
If you can’t beat ‘em, Join em!
If all else fails, and your car is blocked by water guns on all sides. Turn that car off. Get out and join the celebrations!
