Kuwaiti nafar


In the past couple of weeks I had some work in another office. Whenever I come and go there fee a cleaning worker bil madkhal oo gabil cham youm 9idaf enna he’s with me bil elevator:

Worker: enta ay balad?
JE: Kuwait
Worker: wayd zain fe wahid shugul a7san min ga3ad bait.
JE: ee a7san.

Today morning on my way in I saw him:

Worker: Shloooooonik zaaain?
JE: 7imdillah enta shloonik
Worker: enta lazim ya36y baqsheesh wa7id dinar.
JE: (ana hny ma fahamt shino gal) shino?
Worker: lazim ya36y baqsheesh wa7id dinar. Enta Kuwaiti nafar!

My reaction was like a big “!”

That was the funniest thing I heard in a while!
What if I’m Kuwaiti? am I supposed to be a walking cash machine??
It’s not about the 1kd, it’s a small amount that I can give it to him if i want to.. It’s about how he asked for it and his perception of Kuwaitis. Chinna being a “Kuwaiti nafar” obliges me to give him some money!

anyways, il 7imdillah 3al ni3mah illy e7na feeha..
