I was walking towards Gemmayze the other day when it started raining, so I took a cab and had an interesting talk with the cab driver:
Me: Wasselne 3al SNA 3mol ma3rouf.
Cab Driver: Tekram 3aynak.
Me: Tfaddal (and i handed him 4x500LL coins) cause i had only 100$ bill.
Cab Driver: Haydol mich massare! ma 3andak frata?
Me: Le mannoun massare? chou behoun?
Cab Driver: bidee3o ma3na haydol ne7na el chaufferriye, ma mnekhidoun.
(We were almost there)
Me: Chou badna na3mil? hayda el mawjoud.
And I went down and left.
This talk made me remember one of Lebanon’s famous proverbs that goes “Che7ad wou mcharatt!”. They keep complaining about the situation and the rise in oil prices and they don’t want coins!
And the shallowness continues…
Chou khass ?
Yeah… I don’t think that’s the reason they don’t take coins…
the service people are all nawar man, you should treat them like they deserve to be treated! I used to be nice and all and always tip them, but I have learned my lesson :/
not all of them are nawar. but every person in the world has a bad side. my favorite taxi driver never cared about money or its quality, but he just talked too much. way too much.
Actually none of them are nawar technically and ethnically speaking :d
They are Lebanese and they talk too much indeed.
hahaha hol mech masare hehe true post!
Chehad w mcharatt? he is not a chehad! It is his job and you are paying him so you don;t get wet Najib!
