I got on a bus that took me to Burjuman Station where I took the train going to Emirates station. It wasn’t working. No a/c, no fans, no nothing but a overheating metal box hot enough to bake your grandma’s cupcakes. But on that particular day, particular moment and particular weather of 48C (118F), the bus refused to appear. There’s a big tree near the bus stop so I sought shade there, and other people followed. By some unknown reason, the bus came only after 40 minutes.
