Entering A War Zone


A war zone this time of year is the local coop before futoor!!

Oh My GOD!

People are insane!

eshda3wa ya3ni the lack of food does this to people!

esh9ayer beldinya!

Yalahwe!

I left work around 1 pm and headed to the coop.

When I first entered the parking lot i noticed no one was parked properly.

Every ones car was askew. Taking more than one parking space.

Which caused a lot of people to park in no parking places.

For some reason the lack of order outside did not alarm me.

Even when a man in a huge car came rushing right at me in a one way street and waved his fist at me like i was the maniac.

I parked. Walked towards the coop. It was pretty humid.

There was only one shopping cart left. I took it and discovered it was crooked, but what the hay.

I pushed my way through the door expecting a rush of cold air after the awful humidity outside...

but i got nothing!

Apparently the Ac wasnt working.

I took a deep airless breath and said its ok ill just pick up the few things i need and be on my way.

Brown Flour ... nope finished

Butter... two left, theyll do

Harda... nope nada

French cheese. I walked towards the cheese section and found omat mo7amad.

Apparently everyone in my area was in the coop. The ac-less coop.

Screw the cheese ... I walked towards the cashier and found line so long I couldn't figure out where they ended.

So i dropped everything in my hands and walked out!

What the haiiiilll man !

Now I have to figure out a decent hour to be in the coop without having to fight my way through!

I do my shopping at 3 a.m. in one of those 24 hour open stores

August 25, 2009 at 10:42 AM  

We went to carrefour immidietly after the End of fasting. It was dead empty, got out before it started to get crazy ...

August 25, 2009 at 11:08 AM  

It's crazy, wallah, like there is an impending famine or something!

August 25, 2009 at 12:05 PM  

Yo Yo!
I was on my way to the mini coop next to our house to get milk... at 1 AM, and it was packed!! I didn't even bother parking, just left 3ala 6ool!
