Valet Parking at Beirut Airport



I think Lebanon and Lebanese people have become too obsessed with Valet Parking. Sometimes the Valet dude takes the car and parks it 2 meters away, they don't even let you park it yourself in some restaurants, they confiscate all parking sports by placing these yellow thingies, either you have to go park it back in your house or give it to them.

Mooreover, some Lebanese people have gotten too lazy (including me) to try to park it a bit far. Even the smallest and most modest restaurants have Valet Parking. What's next? Hospitals? Gyms?

  1. Ma el lebanese are so class walaw, they have all sort of royal blood in them that even the most prestigious monarchy in europe doesn't have, that's why people do things for them and they don't do it themselves...:)

  5. Actually there are some facilities that offer valet parking or a car escort so you don't have to wander around on your own.
