Ever seen the stand up comedy show by Dave Chappelle or Chris Rock, or Jamel in France (among others)? When they say that you know you’re in the ghetto when you see a 6 year old kid dealing drugs in a street corner in the middle of the night, or threatening someone?
Well last week, I was walking in the street with a friend and a 5 year old kid stops me and looks up at me and says with a strong tone full of confidence (in Arabic) “Make me cross the street”; the boy was something like 1m tall (or short should I say)! I didn’t get it from the start, but I then took his hand and made him go to the other side. The boy didn’t say please nor thanks, I simply gave him a strong tap in the back.
You had to be there to uderstand how funny that was!
