Bon Appetit

I was having dinner (at a party) last night... and of course the setting is a HUGE buffet, so my sister was walking behind me... I usually head to the Pasta Stand or the Saj sandwiches Lady!!! Last night was a different case the food choices were irresistible and looked HMMM HMMM GOOD! But... yes, there is a "BUT"... a woman with a huge "BUTT" was in front of me, so the story goes like this...

Me (to my sister): Ohhh that dish over there look good, I want to have some of that...
My Sis: Which one?
Me: That...... (I paused) no no I changed my mind!

(The woman in front of me was digging her spoon in that dish while waiting in line, and telling the lady with her to try it... and she did, using their own silverware!)

I could not hold it in me..

Me: Excuse me! There are serving spoons! Dont use your own silverware please (and then I said it again in Arabic... just in case!)

Of course I was ignored, my sister was disgusted as well!!!

Then again, those two women in front of us were using their own silverware... and stuffing their plates like there is no tomorrow! This is why I HATE BUFFETS! Their plates turned into a huge mountain of mixed food, Kubbah, Jereesh, Marag, Rice, Shrimps, Sauces, Salad, Stuffed Grape Leaves... AND MUCH MORE!

And as we are walking.... and me getting disgusted with every step I take forward, they are tasting and eating while in line, and I think she ate something that she obviously did not like much, took her spoon and took off that food off her plate on to the table on the serving spoon rest/plate! I went "EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" but I was talking to my sister.... She then turned to me, but I could only see her profile and said

BUTT Lady: ana ma 7a6aita 3al smaa6... 7a6aita 3ala esa7an (I didnt put it on the table, I throw it in the plate)

Me (thinking smaa6!! LOL wain ga3deen): ee ee (Yeah Yeah... I said that to ignore her and because I was not in the mood to get into an argument)

BUTT Lady: EE EE? WAI3EE!!! (she cursed at me...!!! WTF)

Me: hahahahahhaha tewya3 ebleees!!!! (cursing the devil LOL)

She wasn't an old lady, and I could have said something back to her... but I really was not in the mood or in the right state of mind to argue with her, and decided to rise above leaving it to Karma! And guess what? She got angrier LOL!

Some people are disgustingly weird!

why 'tiwya3 iblees' when she was right there, a clear target of your 'way3a'? you would not have missed, judging by the name you dubbed her with.

Ah that's yukky!! At least do this at home and not in front of other people =/
When I started reading I thought you didn't want to eat coz of the butt itself lol,,
I like buffets and taught myself to take just as much food as I want to eat even though it's irresistible!!

Ansam said...

LOL yeah shes a lady with a BIG BUTT! Even when she talked to me she did not look me straight in the eye! That tells you something huh!?
