Paying it Forward

.
So I am at the gym, finishing up my workout, when I see a guy who I was suspicious was the same guy I had seen, who had joined the gym a couple of months back. I remember him fiddling with the treadmill and thinking to myself,
'What a big fatso! I give him 2 weeks and he will be back home on his ass watching tv and stuffing his face.'

So I get a better look and IT IS HIM! He was like half his size!! At that point the guilt kicked in and I remember the american guy who gave me a compliment a while back. So I think to myself,
'I should compliment him. It will encourage him and make him happy.'

I quickly removed the idea from my head thinking about he looked like the typical kuwaiti that would take it in the wrong way. So I leave the gym and he is sitting there on a bench and just as I was about to pass him, I STOPPED.

Me: "Inta ishtarakt bil nady gabil 2-3 months?"
Him (As if he just smelt shit): "Ee"
Me (Turns to leave): "Mashallah 3alaik wayid tha3aft"
He gives me a dirty look.
Me (thinking he might be worried I will give him 3ain): "La ya3ny 3ayny 3laik barda"

I then left as fast as I could, embarrassed that he was not happy at all with my compliment. But you know what, screw that, people in this country have to stop being so fucking uptight. And if I have to embarass myself to move that cycle along, so be it! Join me in the fight against uptightedness!!

.....and yeah he sooooooooo thinks I was hitting on him, Dumbass!

    One great example how attitudes change. You go, girl! They either get used to it and adapt, or die out.

    *amuzed* It was great of you to do that, maybe you'll start a trend..a decent trend in Kuwait for once! It would be getting compliments because people want to make you feel good instead of having an ulterior motive.
