My first experience with the Finnish police officers

You are here

Submitted by msameer on Wed, 25/06/2008 - 8:42am

Sitting down ignoring anything but the phone call and by accident raised my head

Me (After noticing the sign from the guy): Give me a second, there're police officers here
Phone: OK
Police officer: Do you speak English ?
Me (a bit frightened to the police guy): Yes, but can I end this call please ?
Police: Yes but quickly
Me: I have to go now, seems there's something important. Will call you later
Police (After ending the call): Do you have an ID ?
Me: Yes (And showed him my Finnish ID)
Police: Where do you live ?
Me: In that street, I can show you.
Police: We don't go there, just tell us
Me: In this street, number 12. The 2nd door.
Police: People have been complaining that you are speaking in a loud voice at night when it's late.

Yikhrebuyothom ya basha - why are they harassing you like this? This is most likely some BS from the cops (pigs actually) 3ashaan bihawlu yefredu 3adalathom 3alayk. Toz feehom wih fih 60 dahya el zafateet dolaat.

Get a lawyer quickly - just in case they try their crap games again. After all you never know what to expect from the PIGS.

You speak loudly! Ya 7aram 3ala the poor neighbours.
But you know what, I can understand; specially with the utmost silence your neighbourhood must be like.

Invite the cop to any street in Cairo. And yes, tell them that you are a middle eastern who speaks with hand gestures and bettagen fi elkalam :)

Why do you speak loudly? or more correctly: Whom to? phone? computer? wall? self?

I was on the phone.

Beside, A Finnish friend visited Egypt and she said that people shout all the time when she came back. I told her that it's part of the normal talking ;-)

Wallahy ya semsem, not only Finnish suffered your loud voice :P

The truth is: walls here, in addition to keeping us insulated, are really isolating us. I heard the same story from someone who went to US for the first time.

Anyways, w 5elset 3ala eeh fel a5er? Are you moving or something? :P
