• Call customer service when I have a complaint.
Just two words: Suicide mission.
• Tell a taxidriver I’m Dutch.
They all tell you long stories about this magical victorious match in 1990 where Egypt played soccer against The Netherlands in the World Cup. The score was 1-1.
• Go to a police station to report a crime.
Tried that once. Shame on me.
• Being at the airport 3 hours in advance.
What’s the use? Nobody is there to check you in.
• Follow traffic rules.
You will be called donkey or (son of a) dog.
• Eat (anything) before visiting family or friends.
You will need that empty stomach (the food is always delicious).
• Be on time for an appointment.
If I want to be alone, I can do that in my own house.
• Forget that there is always dessert.
Leave some room in your stomach! You will be force fed.
• Act silly around a policeman.
They have guns here, big ones.
• Believe anyone who says “Bokra(tomorrow) In shaa Allah”.
They're lying and they know it.
• Wait patiently in line.
You can stay in line as much as you want, but you will be the last one to be helped.
• Try to download a movie.
Takes years. No, centuries.
• Return a plate empty.
Just don’t. Put something on it, doesn’t matter what it is.
• Wear red clothes.
I don’t really know what the deal is with that.
Unfortunately there is no good infrastructure for that.

I might be young and impressionable but one day I wont be and I'll have this all figured out but for now I'll make my mistakes and tomorrow I'll call it experience and with time it will grow into wisdom.
And for the rest:

- I post what I find interesting, that does not mean it is also my personal opinion.
- If you are rude, I don’t reply
