common sense & respect...

... are two of the common values that most, if not all the people should always have when dealing with strangers and whatnot.

But does this happen in Muscat?

Hell, no.

Imagine you're standing in line waiting to order something from a fast food restaurant and someone is standing right beside you - a female - in the line. Now your turn has come up and you proceed to make your order but the female skips you and automatically assumes that it's her turn.

Common sense and respect states in this situation that you get an apology from the woman and the right-a-way to make your order.

This was not the case.

In fact, it was completely the opposite. The lady states that she had no knowledge that you never ordered and that she wasn't paying attention to you and that you should respect yourself because you're in front of the softer sex.

The result.

A good shouting at.. that's what.
