|Please note, this is a nice Omani man, not the jackass who slapped the poor Indian gas station attendant, who is, not slapping anyone, merely buying a goat or something at auction;)|
And to the anonymous who commented who kindly reminded me that I myself have issues when it comes to slapping folks, that's true. Which is probably why it was for the best, that my [Omani] husband got out of the car to speak the man [Omani] who slapped the [Indian] petrol station attendant.
|This is an Indian petrol attendant in a non-Gulf state country, who is tipped for doing his job, the way any waiter should be in a restaurant, etc.|
Whoa! Dude, in my country, I pump my own gas. It is considered a luxury (where you tip your attendant money for doing so) for filling your tank for you, and washing your windows while you sit nicely tucked with the ac on inside.
So my husband, also finding this to be insufficient reason to assault another human being, told the man he was being a jerk (in really nice Islamic words not what I'd say AT ALL) and asked him to apologize to the attendant.
Of course he didn't and basically swore more at the poor scared man. Which is where, I WOULD HAVE SLAPPED HIM and then we'd all be happily in court (in Barka--again---with a judge I probably know lol).
They are usually the ones who treat the gas attendant (from India or Pakistan) like crap. Who refuse to marry (gorgeous) black Omani women and then complain no one wants to marry them because they're black.
I simply refuse to understand why people put upon by racist others, turn out, somehow even more cruelly racist themselves.
