Ugaas, since truth has become so rare to find, people find it hillarious and funny if you just tell them the truth. Dadkii riwaayad iyo been unbeey kunool yihiin. Markaan kudhahay alxd I have $1800 in my account for the first time since 2009, qosol ayayba kuwaayesheen. see kudhici kartaa? $100K ayaan vacation ku aaday, my dress cost me $10,000. Xitaa kii yaraa ee reer cali suufi kulahaa xitaa $50,000 lacag ma moodo. Waxaad umalaysaa caruurtii ay dhaleen Generals kii kacaanka ee Xoosh kibray,iyo liiqliiqato in ay inta joogaan.
Sxb the truth of the matter is, $10,000 is a lot of money for me. I never had a rich dad and I never inherited anything. The only money that I have earn in my life is through paycheck. When I pay all my expenses, the most i can save waa $500 if I don't pay anything for that month. So it will take me 20 months to Save $10,000.
I don't see anything funny or unrealistic about that. Mindhaa Waad mirqaansantihiin.
Sumu, do you, sxb. You are living honorably and attaining your rizq by the dint of hard work and by the sweat of your brow. Nothing but respect. Like you said, many of these ppl oo kula yaaban, they are living on welfare, and if not, they were raised on welfare
When hyperactive says something like this:
Xitaa kii yaraa ee reer cali suufi kulahaa xitaa $50,000 lacag ma moodo.
you have to understand that the Qatari government cradle-to-the-grave welfare system(in the form of high salaries for marginal work, don't even have to show up, and if you're a "shaykh" better yet, you get paid for just growing a beard and wearing a qamees) has provided for him his whole life. From his private school education to the Hummer H3 to the house he just bought. He never knew what it's like to juggle: rent, tution payment, monthly biil to family members.
So stop justifying yourself to them. For those of us in the xamaali-trenches just like you, who stand on our own two feet without assistance from anybody, we stand tall and proud. So stand tall and proud. When they make fun of you, remind them that their parents had to lie about being married so that they would get a little extra caano-boore niido from the welfare system.
