A Burger, a Dog & a Flag...

Friday was the last day of the kids half term holiday, I took the day off work to spend it with them.
The kids wanted to go to a fast Burger restaurant, so as we got there by the entrance they have a box displaying the toys that come with a kids meal, this time they had girls toy which was a fairy doll and a boy toy which was a pack of dragon cards and a game CD.
Both of my kids usually eat an adult meal as they have grown up and a kids meal is not enough but sometimes Amir chooses to have a kids meal just because he likes the toy that comes with it, so I joined the queue with Amir, made the order, the man taking the order didn't ask me if I wanted a boy or a girl toy, I assumed it was because he saw Amir.
So the order arrives, the kids meal is in a little box, I asked the guy if he put a boy's toy in there, with a very strong foreign accent and broken English he replied that in this country there is not such a thing as boy or girl toys, he said all toys in this country are universal, I opened the box and surprise surprise, the toy was the girl fairy with wings! Amir looked shocked... I replied by saying that I am not a tourist and pointed to the display box and said to him please get me a boy's toy that is clearly advertised, he started raising his voice sir there is not such a thing, by then the manager noticed what happened, she asked me what the problem was, I told her that this employee is being a real pain all because he does not want to turn back walk 2 steps pick up a boy's toy, she took the fairy from me and apologised and went to get another toy while this silly man kept saying "this is sick, this is sick" I pointed to him to zip his mouth.
As soon as the manager came back with the boy toy, he said to her do not exchange the toy because he (me) had already opened the girl toy, I asked the manager if the toy was open when I gave it to her, she looked at him with an angry look and said No it was still sealed.

I laughed picked up the food and told the man "I told you to zip it but you didn't listen" :o)

Driving to work this morning, I was listening to the radio, for a change the subject was not about Muslims in the UK, this time it was about fatal diseases that can be passed from pets to their owners, the program highlighted the fact that many people put themselves at risk when they share their beds with their dogs.
Many angry listeners phoned in saying that they do sleep with their dogs and that there was nothing wrong with doing that, one lady mentioned that she shares her bed with 5 dogs! the presenter asked her how she can tolerate the smell to which she answered that her dogs do not smell and in fact are much cleaner than some people!
On this point I do agree with her, I am sure her dogs are much cleaner than she is, I mean imagine sleeping next to dogs! I am an animal lover and I do like dogs but to be that close to them is not right, I once saw this lady with a lap dog, she put it on the ground, the little doggy did a poo then sniffed it, the lady picked him up straight away and gave him a cuddle but the dog did a poo so where did she think it wiped its dirty bottom :oS

A Libyan blogger recently suggested a Bulldozer should be added to the Libyan flag, well it looks like somebody was listening to you :o)

Salam Anglo-Libyan,

Aside from the burger madness, it sounds like you had a great day with the kids, alhamdullilah. I'm always amazed at what one person will pick as a topic to go absolutely insane over---in this case a toy.

My mom is a dog lover and so is my brother. They always seem to have one, but never sleep with it. Ugh!

there is a lot of demolition going on in Libya at the moment, thats why people joke about the bulldozer. have a good day :o)

salam ibeebarbie
the funny thing, people in the queue were laughing at this man and his silly talk :o)
thanks, yes we had a nice day, ended up in toys R us where I got really bored but the kids enjoyed running around the shop.
I have friends with dogs and I like them too but certainly not on furniture :o)

I've read on another blog that kindergarten teachers are told not to praise kids with "good boy"/"good girl" because it is sexist.
Political correctness seems to be going mad. And that poor employee has been taught it before being taught proper English!

Anglo-Libyan said...

Girls toys or boys,doesnt know the difference? Was he from Mars ???lol....Its because he noticed you were foreign , as if he wasnt...Human stupidity and lack of common sense !

I am nearly at the stage where the kids are not bothered by these "darn toys" :o)
it could be true that he thought all dark people are tourists, he is dark too :o)

i like the way you ended it with the guy in the first post...u were right, if he just ziped it!!!! but it's just really stupid of him to start an arguement over a toy, i guess he woke up on the wrong side of the bed..u never know!
