I was walking past a restaurant/shisha place and i heard the usual “yiy yiy yiy shou hal sha’feh, yo’borne jamela” – it doesn’t sound too bad when you read it but you should have heard the tone of his voice and the extra sound effects!
i turned around and said “are you talking to me or are you saying things loud enough for me to hear them?” – and then there was silence. his friends all turned around and looked at him as he scrapped up his brain cells to come up with a clever answer.
He said something along the line of “i’m just admiring”, so i quickly replied “if this is admiration, no wonder you’re sitting with 8 men on a saturday night at a shisha place, try a different strategy coz this one is clearly not getting you anywhere, is it..”
I walked off at he mumbled things i could not and did not want to hear. I’ll think of some other stories as I’ve been a lot feistier since i turned 25 🙂
silence only reinforces such behavior, speak up girls and be wise with your words!
