I was going back home alone that day from Roadster Ashrafiyeh to Hamra, it takes a 10 minute drive but lucky me I couldn’t find a service since they consider it as “charqieh – gharbieh” so hell no they won’t drive me there!
- NEWS FLASH PEOPLE, the civil war ended long before I was even born! -
so I kept walking and walking in a hope to find a taxi or anything that could drive me anywhere near home… But after waiting for an hour in the rain and the taxi company said that they need an hour minimum to provide me with a taxi, I decided to walk home!
I reached downtown, or to be exact “Bab-Idris” and suddenly an old guy jumps out of no where and talks to me, I couldn’t hear him since I was listening to music at the time, but I was able to hear him say in his egyptian accent “eih ya gamil, ma betroddesh leih?”…
as usual I SNAPPED! I started yelling at him and saying in arabic “do I look like I’m in the mood for you, or for anyone else to harass me? Yeah, answer me? WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? (&@#^(*$#” even though it was around 6pm (winter time) and it was kind of dark, but I could see the shock on his face.
He was terrified, he didn’t see it coming. He didn’t expect that a girl would speak up and refuse harassment, especially not in the way that I did…
After yelling at him, I turned my back, took a deep breath and kept walking! that would teach anybody to mess with me again!
