Reality Check


This is one of those posts that you end up questioning your own job!


I passed by a boutique in the shopping complex next to Crown Plaza Hotel (3amra Hotel sabiqan) and went in.Very nice shop, shoes and bags:) every girl’s dream.


Il muhim, the sales lady, the owner welcomed us and offered to show us some boots. Very nice designs I must admit. I remembered that lady, she was with me in university! She was stupid, she once answered the accounting professor with a “Ma tis2alni ana ma ba3raf ishi !” when he asked her to solve the problem. He kicked her out. I felt good back then not because I was a good student, because she was rude.


Look who’s feeling good now! She designs the boots and bags, sends her designs to Italy to be made with genuine leather and a brand name. Ironic huh? She’s selling a pair of shoes for around one fifth on my salary!

Ya3ni I’m sure her parents are proud of her now, what good was that B+ in that accounting course? I’m sure she was drawing another design and deciding on her career that day when she was kicked out. Good for her.

Yeah I know, life is not fair :) Why oh why am I an employee ?

Mainstream rules society standards are what's not fair..so be a renegade "with the long hair and bike! yeah I know ana gadeeem" ..and go after your passion in life,in a realistic way.

hehe "i remember her, she was stupid" dont beat about the bush, i think life is about taking chances, sometimes it takes stupidity to take a risk but sometimes that stupidity or that risk pays off.. those of us who tend to keep safe so to speak are those who genuinely live mediocre lives and always wonder what if!
