Um Abdulatif M7tara!

                           

My Conclusion to this very interesting phone call is... Um Abdulatif is pissed off with her daughter in law!
It seems her daughter in law is a dalu3a and after the honeymoon is giving hell to Abdulatif :)  Poor Abdulatif!
and his mama is venting on the phone about now days
young women who choose to become individual
 beings instead of a shadow behind their husbands :)
Ya Um Abdulatif, I don't like to sound obnoxious, but my grandmothers (on both sides)  and their mothers before them and their sisters and cousins who are older than you are had servants to serve them and take care of their children! 
Yes, they did minimal work,
 like over looking and superviseing their house hold work
and looking pretty for their husbands :)
But not milking the cows and goats or whatever.
Sij mo 3aib almara tegoom fee bait'ha w 3yalha w rayel'ha.
 But there are standards to abide to.
Al mara alkhaleejiya 6al3a min bait ahl'ha em3azeza
w emkarema... mo ta5thoonha and expect her to be
5adma 3endkom bil bait!

  6. when you're raised in place where you did milk cows and all of the things she said you would say these things, and please remember not everyone is raised like your grandma some did work all day cause life is difference from one place to another she was a Bedouin. money,maids & not having to work in your own house is all new to her that why she is pissed.
