I was raised and taught to clean up after myself and NEVER leave a mess, especially in public! And till this day if I couldn't find a garbage can I put my trash in a plastic bag or if I couldn't find that either put it in my designer bag until I find one. But sadly not everyone care as much as I do to keep our country clean.
Yesterday's episode of Khwater reminded me of something I used to think when I was a kid. Unfair as it may seem, I always thought that people in the lower social economic class are the ones who are making all the mess and leaving filth behind them. But thankfully I was proved wrong three years ago.
One of my high school graduation gifts was to go to camp "I Will Be", which was hosted by Dr. Sanaa Abid. It was one of my most cherished experiences that taught me a lot. One of the things I learned was: even RICH people can be dirty and disgusting.
We were going to a somewhat privet beach in Al-Durra, so some of the girls were making homemade or in this case camp-made tanning lotions that are made of juices and they stored them in the juice boxes. So far so good, right?
We went there and we swam, rode jet skies and some bathed in the sun to get a tan. Then it was Maghreb and it was time to go. I don't need to tell you how filthy the place was I kept picking juice boxes and ships and biscuit bags and they didn't seem to end. I stayed calm until I saw the juice boxes they used for their tanning lotions floating in the sea. Then I got really PISSED! I started screaming at them: what kind of people are you? Do you have no respect? And other things that I thought but couldn't say.
Anyway, the girls in that camp were from BIG, RICH families from all around Saudi and still they acted like complete pigs. Ella mn r7m rabby of course.
And that my friends what changed my mind forever. Poor & rich people are both the reason why our country is a dumpster!
P.S:I advise you all to go watch Wall.E and learn from him. Plus he's such a romantic LOL.
