#OMGLOLWTF: 15 Signs You Have Just Been Visited By A Relative From Dubai


Everyone has a relative who lives in Dubai, right? The one you only see once a year (for one whole month, in most cases), when they ‘come down’ on a holiday. These relatives are like the desi version of Santa Claus, stuffing their suitcases with as many presents and mementos for close family and distant relatives alike. And when they’re in town, you just know, because there are signs everywhere. Here are 15 tell-tale signs that you have just been visited by a relative from Dubai. 1. Packets of these babies are doled out like Red Cross supplies to drought-stricken villages to everyone who comes home to visit.
