[1: 290 of 10,000] Two Words Interchanged

In Journal, Reference on July 14, 2011 at 12:01 AM

Dubai is a very interesting city because it can make different nationalities work together. I have been here for more than 3 years but I still can’t speak Arabic. I’d like to share a funny but true story about an actual incident.

An Egyptian man (Arabic speaker) and a Filipina were about to enter into the same door. Being a gentleman, he opened the door and said, “First Lady” instead of saying “Ladies First”.

Having the “First Lady” in mind and considering the nationality of the woman, the funny part could stem on the fact that the current President of the Philippines is a bachelor and I didn’t know she was the unnamed remarkable wife.

  1. nice story, sympathy …
