The one where .. We got robbed .. Kind of

A while ago Danderma wrote a post asking people if they have ever got robbed, and she reminded me of an incident that makes me laugh so hard (now, not at the time it happened).

It was the summer of 2001, the summer right before my senior year of high school.  My friends and I decided to go to summer school at the American University of Paris to “learn french”.  That whole summer was filled with the funniest stories and adventures ever.  We were 7 Kuwaiti girls surrounded by rich americans, many of them were JAPS (jewish american princesses) and the rest were a random mix of richie rich americans.  oo YES fy ba3ath’hum kanaw J3oo9, e7asboona 3ala el franc el wa7ed.

Anways, one of the days we decided to go to a movie, oo the only movie playing at that time that was English and not min alf oo setemya oo e76uba was “Original Sin” maal Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie.  I was the first one to reach the cinema, so I bought all the tickets for the girls 3ala ma yo9loon and pay me back.

Dashaina el movie oo temadadna oo endimajna akher endimaj.  El cienma was empty, except for a couple that couldn’t keep their hands off each other behind us, they barely stayed 20 minutes into the movie and left (YES i remember that because they were just too damn graphic, and seriously needed a room), and two old ladies infront of us.  I was too into the movie to notice the movement of the two old ladies infront of us.  But by the time the movie was done some of my friends backpacks were not even close to where they were sitting.  At that point we didnt think any thing of it and left the cienma, and it was raining cats and dogs outside.

So we ran from the cinema all the way to the metro station, trying to hide under strangers umbrellas as to not get as wet, didnt really work out.  Anyways some of the girls wanted to buy umbrellas so they stopped at one of the random stores that were in the metro station, I was already half way down the stairs when I heard “OOOOOH MY GOD, MY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!” it was the voice of one of my friends, and I ran up the stairs wela ashoof the girls eb 7alat estinfaar, kel wa7da e6ali3 boook’ha etchayek if her money is there.  I think 4 of the girls got their money stolen out of their wallets, and the thing is those old ladies just took the cash, they left the cards in the wallets, bas ya3ni shino kanaw el cards, we all had “alazraq” back then, so it wouldn’t have been of any use to them.

But seriously, we got OWNED by two old ladies… I wasn’t robbed (el7imdilla), I used my bag as a foot rest.  But after that incident, zain ma we didn’t superglue our wallets in our pockets.  Funny, but also a slap in the face.

    Now that you mention it, it’s kinda funny now but back then I would’ve been so pissed off and to think they are old ladies :/ I hate thieves!

    ام قليب ضحكتيني عالعيايز المتمرسات بمهنة السرقة
    مهنة انسانية

    ترى ما يصير تقطين جنطتج بالقاع وتسندين عليها ريلج
    هذي فيها تحرير مخالفة وسحب الاجازة والجنطة
    عامليها بالحسنى يا بنت

    بس انا اشك ان المعاريس اللي وراكم مع العصابة
    خلوكم تلهون معاهم وتفرغوا على جناطكم

    تصدقين بديت اشك بانتونيو بانديرس وانجلينا جولي انهم من ضمن العصابة!
