• What’s 7aki Fadi all about?

    I am going to tell you a lot of things but at the end of the day it's all 7aki Fadi (empty talk , حكي فاضي), most probably somebody out there already said it.

Sorry Because You Stepped On My Foot.

I love Canadians. Why? Here is a great example:

Yesterday I was waiting to get on the subway, the subway stopped so I stepped back to let somebody out before getting on and I accidentally stepped on someones foot so she said: “Sorry , I was standing too close to you”.

Now, where in any country in the world do you step on someones foot and they would apologize to you? you gotta love Canada.

I can picture this happening in Amman :

A guy steps on another guys foot.

The steppee: Shu had, a3ma inta? ma tfatte7. (Are you blind?)

The stepper : ana asef ya akh. (I am sorry brother)

The steppee: asif? min wain asrefha ana hadi asif. lesh ma btitalla3 2oddamak willa warak. (Are you sorry? From which bank should I cash the sorry? Why aren’t you looking in front of you or behind you? )

The stepper: la 7awala wala quatta illa billah, ya zalameh ma ana 2olet asef. (God have mercy on my soul. Man I said I was sorry!)

The steppee: tab lesh 3am bitsarekh, ya3ni da3aset 3ala ijry w 3am bitsarekh kaman? ( I want to know why you are shouting? You step on my foot and you have the audacity to shout too!!!)

The stepper: ya zalameh sally 3ala ilnabi, ana ma sarrakhet 3aliak, ya fatta7 ya 3aleem 3ala hal sobo7. ( I didn’t shout! What a great way to start the day!)

The steppee: lyakoon mish 3ajbak, 7ases inno mish 3ajbak ya3ni ( It seems you don’t like what I am saying to you, I have a feeling that you don’t)

The stepper: bti3raf, 2ah, mish 3ajibny. ana mish 2asef, roo7 ballet ilba7ar. ( You know what. Yes, I don’t like what you’re saying, and I am not sorry, go tile the sea)

The steppee: tab lesh 3am bitseb. (Why are you swearing at me?)

The stepper: walak inta kinnak 7maaaaaaar. ana ma sabbait. ( Are you a donkey or something? I didn’t swear at you!!!)

The setpee: Ibtid3as 3ala ijry w kaman bitseb 3alaieh. ( You step on my foot and you swear too!)

The stepper: bti3raf, shikly kaman biddi ad3as 3ala rasak. ( You know what, I think I also want to step on your head too.)

And then il toshe bitwalle3 . ( And then a big fight ensues)

LOL, no?

OMG the English translation just CRACKS ME UP. HAHAHAHAAHA.
