Fasting Abuse
October 09, 2006

This morning while waiting on the never-ending traffic light next to my house, a small accident happened where one guy tried to cut in line and ended up hitting another car. Naturally, they both got out of the cars and the debate started on whose fault it was. It doesnt need a genious to figure it out, the guy cutting (lets call him A) was to be blamed 100% but he wouldnt take it and kept arguing. He kept trying to shut the other guy (B) up by telling him he has work to do and doesnt have time for this. The other guy also had work to get to. It was calm until A asked B "Are you christian or muslim?!?" So B gets very pissed off and asks the same question in return so A says, "I'm muslim, fasting, and need to get to work! You dont care, you're christian!" So A gets into his car and drives off, which was when the light turned green. I also moved on then but did see B taking down the plate number of A's car.

Point is: Because its Ramadan, does fasting count as an excuse for being stupid, breaking and violating the law, and disrespecting other peoples' rights? HELL NO!! I'm muslim, and I fast, and I say to all those "muslims":

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the fire.

Ok, Stallion corrected me. The quote is actually:

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

    I thought the saying went, "If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen!"

    As for the accident, this happenes even when it's not Ramadan! People don't know how to drive here!

    stallion, thanks for the correction. I was actually talking bout how people use the fact that they r fasting to get away with things here. Not knowing how to drive is granted!:)
