No More Bengali Dreams

What would you feel if you were married with a kid and an old lady comes and asks you:
”How come your baby is beautiful when you and your husband aren't?”

A punch in the face would do. Good thing I wasn’t around.


6abakh is leaving, his contract expired.
He told me:Flamingoliya, (enta lamma zawwaz, saaw telephone ana)
“Call me when you get married” and handed me his telephone number.
Meskeen, kasra kha6ra wayid *Gulp*


Many times colleagues joke about clients who turn out to be my family members. I enjoy seeing the shock on their face when I tell them who they are ;)

Dear Flaming,

Mean Old Lady: Smile at her and say nothing. Ish7agga it3owreen rasich...She is just a bitter thing with no better way to get her jollies than to be nasty...

6abaakh guy: Get his best recipes! Quick! Quick, I say! Food is the antidote to singledom in Kuwait!

Colleagues who joke about your family members and don't know it: Knock yourself out and enjoy the giggle as they squirm, gal3et-hum.

The grumpy MsB, who has only useless and semi-helpful advice for you today...

Shopaholic Q8eya said...

Oh no more 6abakh stories!!

Flamingoliya said...

I can't believe how insensitive people can be.

I tried to learn how he makes coffee bas mako fayda. How about I send him to you? :)
(I will email you and tell you where he's going to work)

Flamingoliya, who adores MsB and admires her wisdom.

Yeah, no more :/

Mean Old Lady: Smile at her and say "for the same reason that you look so much older an uglier than your true age?"

6abaakh guy: you actually have a contract with your 6abbakh? 7asha he’s working with PWC mo eb bait.. :P

Colleagues who joke about your family members and don't know it: I actually do that even for people that are not really related to me, especially if the colleagues are checking a girl (client) out, I look at them and say "hey, et9eerlee" or "hey, bint 3ammy", they sooooooo freak out o yetdoodhoon.. and it works every time lol

The grumpy Don, who has more helpful advice for you today than Ms. B :P...
