8 things that bug me in Ammani community

1. How DJs on radios talk in an American accent.

Inhom cool! Ba7rain becomes Barain, cozmo becomes CAzmo and ninety nine becomes niney nine!
bakoon biddi akob 7ali min il sayyara when i hear them. bas the new move now is Bri2ish! One of the new radio stations is 'spot on' with their accent

2. How weddings are overrated; flying to the dead sea wedding location by a private jet, entering the wedding hall in a car, and having the make up artist and hair dresser fly in from Lebanon!

Shower parties drive me crazy as well.......... how many prewedding parties do you have to have?!

3. The not-at-all-necessary obsession with facebook : "Lara, khalas lazem ti3mali facebook".

You know what? I don't care what everybody's status is, i don't care what pictures you have uploaded or if an electronic machine reminds you of my birthday. Please spare me the :"Faroo0007 yesterday was amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing" !!!

4. How all coincidental meet ups end with

a fake: "isma3i, lazem ni3mil ishi"!

Law kan biddek ni3mil ishi you would've called me a thousand years ago ;)

5. How everybody is too dependant on their cell phones. The minute they walk into a restaurant they'd be like:"wainkom?" ! You know, if you'd walk 3 more steps you would find your 10 friends on a table!

6. How drivers think they have the right of the road if they have an E-Class and above.

7. How the name Faisal became FAYsal all of a sudden!

8. How kul 7ada 'mish taye2 il balad'

Under age flirting

I've been living in Jordan all my life and the other day it hit me! If you're a girl living almost anywhere in Jordan I assure you you would have experienced the following:

Walking in the street hearing a mu3akaseh 7afartaliyyeh like: "bijannin il abyad" or "yil3an 3omri"or "beeeeeeeep" look back and there he is, a male kid aged 10 years old, maximum!

Isn't it weird? I mean there's no way on earth that this little kid understands what he's doing, he couldn't possibly understand the urge of flirting. Emotionally, mentally and physically it doesn't make sense. Most of the time, I bet, they don't understand what they're saying.
So why do they do it? The only reason is to fit in, they imitate their older brothers or older friends. Being males, of course, they have to feed their male ego as much as possible, so they prove their existence and their manhood by doing these things :)

These kids are not only wasting their time on the streets trying to be somebody but their childhood is also being stolen from them.
