I have a couple questions for y’all:
WHY DOES NO ONE EVER HAVE CHANGE IN THIS FRIGGIN’ COUNTRY!?!
Gratefully, now that i’m not having to take taxis everywhere anymore (riding my bike is so much more pleasant), i don’t have to worry about this problem, but it’s still a bit perplexing. Is this just a peculiarly American expectation, that you’ll be able to go into a bank and get change? يعمي, i guess that would sort of make sense. If the Federal Reserve is good at one thing, it’s definitely printing more money. Still, the bank staff here seem like they are sincerely put out if you ask for small bills, like they take it personally or something.
Oh, and how ’bout this one:
WHY CAN’T ANYONE JUST SAY “I don’t know” OR “No, we don’t carry that.”!?!
Is it really such a hard blow to arab manhood to say, “I actually have no idea what you’re talking about or where this place is of which you speak.” Instead, they’ll just make something up.
And if you can’t make me an omelette at the moment because your chef is at Friday prayers, could you just say that instead of making me wait for an hour…for scrambled eggs!?!
And if i ask you if you have something in your shop and you don’t have it, could you maybe just tell me so instead of going to the back of the shop as if to get it, only to disappear for 15 minutes while you get it around the block at another store? I swear i won’t think less of you for it.
