Lately, it seems to be the trend. The plumber, the taxi driver, the carpenter, all send me invoices of “as much as I want”. I wonder how they have the guts. Imagine I send Burburry lady an invoice of “as much as you want”, I’d end up with nothing! :) Guess they’re hoping for more than they were planning to ask for. Next time I will keep them up to their words and REALLY give them as much as “I” want!

It’s a hectic week over here, lots of projects on the way, but so far I can proudly announce that I am illustrating for the Arabic version of A List Apart magazine for web designers, thanks to the very lovely Beshr Kayali & Mohammad Kayali. With this, my darlings, I wish you a beautiful day :)

    happens all the time….recently..my car broke down, a technician who was near by came and tried to turn on the car, he immediately found out that it’s an electrical not a mecanical failure, he told me better call a car electrician….so when i asked him how much he wanted, he said ” samhit nafis”…what the hek…are we praying….!!!! …

    Akh if I had a dollar for each time this happens, its like a technique they use to milk you for every dollar you’ve got. In the beginning I used to think “oh how chivalrous and generous” but you realize it’s all a scam. Great Observation though!!

    A technique that never fails is to ask your mom in advance how much it costs, or anyone older than you… I always get ripped off when I find no one to ask :(

  17. Rima Says:

    hahaha! really, “a knuckle sandwich” is about how much they should get after their scamming… it’s funny how their “politeness” always transforms into the opposite! (btw, is it really a new trend?)
