Things Maltese People Won't Do When It's Raining

Noħroġ mid-dar f'dix-xita? Ma tarax ħi...


Although Malta famously enjoys about 300+ days of sunshine in a year, when it does rain...we can all agree that it pours. Not only does this usually reveal massive infrastructural problems on the islands, it also renders the people who inhabit it pretty immobile – whether they need to be or not.

Here's a few things that Maltes people categorically won't do when it's raining.

1. Their hair

6. Or get any work done generally

No I didn't finish that report – it was due on that day when it was pissing with rain – remember?


7. Cook

Because – you think I'm going out in this rain for groceries? Pfft. I'll just get delivery.


8. Successfully order delivery

"Hi – can I order a margherita please?"

"Għandek mill-inqas tlett siegħat x'tistenna sinjura..."

Fuck it – microwave popcorn and stale Panettone for dinner it is.


8. Sleep

Marelli, rajthom is-sajjetti dal-lejl? Qas stajt norqod!
