wow! what a rip off!

Seriously it is so sad how you have to keep your eyes and ears open all the times! Today we decided to take a walk and buy some bread from the gardens..It wall went well...I took bilal sans stroller, and he was not too bad. We crossed the streets without many problems yippy!
After buying bread on the way back we passed the DVD store, we went in to look for an Arabic DVD for the kids; we found bug life and went to pay for it. It was for 1.5JD. I got 1JD out then noticed that I do not have a ½ JD so I got a 5JD out on the table. The guy took the 5JD and put it in the register, and then he took the 1JD and asked if I have a ½ JD!! Holly crap, do I look that stupid??? It is a good thing I was carrying bolbol and not busy running after him so I noticed what he did! He looked like such a nice guy...tsk tsk and I’d say it was an honest mistake but it was so freaking obvious it is was not!

Other than that I enjoyed out walk and found a bakery with nice whole wheat bread that is not too thick!:)

O and today I registered bilal in preschool and I made a friend! She lives close by and her son is few days older than Bilal...she is about my age so I am happy.

O O O O O , while talking to the girl at the school, one of the teachers; I mentioned that I have another son that is 6yr. And she was surprised and asked how old I am. She thought I was 24/25. I love that girl!

Lucky you, that other day an 18yrs old dude called me 3amu...I was about to kick his arse.

It's good to know you are doing good in Ammman, finding all what you need around;)
I don't like it too when most of my students call me "khala Nida" even though they are way younger, but still...I ask them to call me by my name only:)

Btw, I find it difficult sometimes to leave comments on yr blog, sometimes it shows after a while, not immediatly I mean...I don't know why?!

So I gave him 1/2 JD thinking its 2 (the canadian toonies and half JDs look similar). Both of us puased for few seconds. Him waiting for an extra 1 JD and I am waiting for my half JD. loool
