6 Things Egyptians Complain About Each and Every Eid

"El sa7el lam fashkh".

Here comes Eid in all its glory. It's finally that time of the year to go on those delayed long trips and guilt-freely overeat like stone age kings. There is one tradition, however, that Egyptians seem to be determined to keep eternally alive for no apparent reason. Have you guessed it yet? Complaining! Whether you're by the beach or chillaxing in an empty and more poetic version of Cairo, these whinebags will find you and fill your ears with annoyingly repetitive, though quite valid, complaints about Eid. Here are some of the most frequent ones:

'Ouf sa7el lam awy'

O EM GEE!

'Ya reet ely safro mayrg3osh w yesebo el balad fadya keda'

Sounds practical.

'El la7ma ghelyet'

Groundbreaking! So are you saying that after everything doubling in prices in the span of a few months, el la7ma kaman ghelyet? Shocking.

'El Eid el sana deh msh zy kol sana'

Classic nostalgia BS. The most common Eid complaint since, well, zaman.

'El dam meghara2 el shaware3'

Yeah that tends to happen when thousands of animals are slaughtered in one go. Bummer.

'Msh hanel7a2 ne7gez fe ay 7etta

Big fat bummer. We're sorry the holidays don't make it convenient for you to be a sloppy planner.
