Visiting Saudi Arabia and its people is one of the most exciting experiences. The people are pretty loving, open-hearted, and of course very hospitable. With my experience, I can confidently say that jotted down are 10 statements you won’t ever hear from Saudis!
Are you paying the bill?
Traveling to different countries, I have often experienced that people hesitate in paying the bills at restaurants. I did end up paying half of it or we did divide it equally among the people.
Yet the experience in Saudi Arabia was the most different one. None of the Saudis would ever ask you to pay for the food, and neither would let you pay! The waiter would have to stay there until the Saudi wins in paying the bill!
I don’t know about it!
Well, you will die to hear this. Saudis won’t ever disappoint you and would readily help you no matter what!
Don’t eat if you are not hungry
Hahaha! None of the Saudis would say that you know. Even if you visit them after eating a pizza, they will defiantly force you to eat no matter what. This is called Saudi Hospitality.
We won’t mind if you don’t become a doctor
Every Saudi parent wants to make sure that the child becomes a doctor. However, this won’t be enough, even if you become a doctor, your parents won’t be satisfied with you! They always have high expectations!
If you want to live alone, you can!
No way, you would have to live with the family until you get married! The Saudi parents would lock you up in a room rather than letting you go and make an independent living!
I don’t care about people
Most Saudis are afraid of society and won’t follow their desire as they fear what people would think and say.
This is something most Saudi parents would teach their children “what would people say!” However new trends are allowing people to follow their hearts!
You can go for a hangout
A Saudi parent would investigate completely about the person you are to meet and will hang out with.
The Saudis are popular for sending their children abroad for studies but won’t ship them to a neighboring house for a sleepover!
I won’t be asking personal questions
Mind it, Saudi parents and fellows can ask very personal questions and are hopeful for a great answer!
Girl, you are mature now
Saudi girls are dying to listen to this statement! The grown-up girls are treated like small ones no matter what!
Make your own decisions now
Said no Saudi parent ever!
