Thursday tales of The Office Boy
1) Me: Can you go bring me a Diet Coke?
Office Boy: (stares at me with a blank look)
Me: Diet Coke bring me yallah.
Now, this above task would consist of maybe 30 sec to a min. About 5 min later, as I take a deep breath, I procede to the kitchen which is what I have should have done in the first place. Gotten it myself. I walk in to find him trying to light Bakhoor/Oud coal (charcoal) and has a cup of coffee ready to bring me.... ??????????????
Me: What are you doing?
Office Boy: (stares at me with a blank face)
Me: Stares back
Office Boy: Coal now? Mafi olives so I make coffee and give u cookie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me: Procedes to the fridge, grabs Diet Coke turns around and leaves. Shuts my office door and pretends to be deaf.
Coke= Coal Yallah=Olives Where the coffee and cookie come in to play I will never know.
Ok, I couldnt make this up if I tried. I really only have a little patience and I cant aford to give it all to him....
God help me! hahahaha
2) Me: Whats your mobile number?
Office Boy: Yes Madam
Me: Your number?
Office Boy: Yes mobile.
Me: (Praying for patience at this point) I need the number
Office Boy: Here, ok use(hands me the phone)
Me: Letting out a "grunt" as I give up and walk away........
