Straight, street, huh??!

on May 30, 2010

Normally, I would have walked from the office to the flat which takes me around 15 minutes maximum. However, last Thursday, I felt so tired that all I could think of was being home lying on my bed. I decided to get a cab and fortunately, I did not have any trouble finding one. Just as I entered and was comfortably seated at the back, I told the driver where we were going. I told him “City Center Hamdan Street” to which he replied, “street?” (At least that was what I heard him say) I repeated, “Hamdan Street”. And he asked again ,”no, sida?” (Sida means “straight” in another language mostly used by the cab drivers here but is NOT Arabic as is commonly mistaken, I think). That was when I realized that he was not asking for the street name despite saying STREET (as I heard it or maybe that was just how he pronounced it) only he meant STRAIGHT. Ugh. Language barrier!

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
