While living in Saudi Arabia, you will never hear the following 9 phrases from anyone.
Al-Baik is Empty today
Al-Baik, the pride, and joy of the Saudi culinary world can never be found empty, much like the roads.
You will never hear someone say how they entered Al-Baik and it was empty and they didn’t have to wait. If you send your driver to get food from Al-Baik, know for sure that he will be grumping about it.
My Kids love going to School
Kids have it bad, having to go to school after nearly 3 months of doing nothing and having all the free time in the world. So, you won’t hear anybody saying my kids love going to school.
Well I can most certainly say that this is more of a global thing with the majority of the children not looking forward to school
The Streets are so quiet
Somehow it is always crowded, especially in Jeddah where as soon as the sun goes down, people come out. Hence you will never hear anyone say how quiet and empty the streets are, ever.
You can literally start a conversation with a random person about how bad the traffic is and they would agree with you.
How nice the rain is!
The Middle Eastern region doesn’t experience any light playful showers or moderate rain. Either there is no rain or there is flooding, it is very little in between the two. So, you won’t hear people saying how nice the rain is.
I do not want to eat
Due to the hot weather people in the region are always hungry, so you won’t hear people refusing any food.
After eating so much who’s going to move, right? So, when the doorbell rings, you will not find people volunteering to go open the door.
Everyone arrived on time
If you throw a party, prepare to wait. People are rarely on time, as it seems it has become more of a tradition to be fashionably late. So, you won’t hear about parties starting and ending on time.
I don’t need a charger
Modern smartphones are always in need of charging, and everybody has a smartphone yet not everybody leaves home with the charger.
You won’t hear people offering up their charges because “they don’t need the charging” because they always need charging.
I hate using WhatsApp
Lastly who talks on the phone anymore, just text dude. So, you probably won’t hear about how people love talking on the phone.
