If you drive, then you must encounter an endless number of men who, for whatever reason, decide to help you park. No matter how many you’ve seen, they all have the same main 10 habits.
Wiper Blades Obsession
He’ll leave your wiper blades hanging every morning to let you know that he generously cleaned your windscreen. No matter how annoying it is for you to discover this after you had already jumped into your car with your laptop, coffee and oversized bag. Even if he didn’t clean it, same thing, different day.
A Habit of Making more Money than you
The regular Sayes takes no less than 5LE per car. So if he takes this amount of money for 20 cars a day (on a lazy afternoon) he’ll be making 3K net per month! Remember your starting salary?
“He’ll leave your wiper blades hanging every morning to let you know that he generously cleaned your windscreen.”
Mad Driving Skills!
He is always inspired by Vin Diesel, especially in Too Fast, Too Furious. He will drive your car in Gam’et El Dowal as if he were driving on Sokhna road. He loves to show some furious gear.
Your Music Tastes are Never Good Enough for him
His ride, his rules! He would care to switch your current uncanny Bjork to some Mahraganat.
Rebel without a Cause
Your regular Sayes is often rebellious. He would confidently suggest double and triple parking, then interrupt you in a middle of a meeting to come down and remove your car, bringing your carelessness and irresponsibility to the table.
He doesn’t Care for your Trust Issues
He is family! No matter how many times you told him you want to keep your keys, he frowns upon it. “How come you don’t trust me?”
“He has a supernatural power to catch you when you try to sneak out and run without paying him.”
He Sees Everything
He has a supernatural power to catch you when you try to sneak out and run without paying him. He would appear in front of your windscreen on a rainy evening with fury burning in his eyes.
Ruins your Car then Insults your Driving Skills
He pretends to have infrared options. He asks you to reverse backwards and backwards and when you hit a garage he shouts “stop!” And sometimes blame it on the famous Egyptian myth “all women can’t drive”.
A Sayes and A Conman
He might enjoy some Photoshop skills and use them to create fake tickets, forcing you to pay a 5 star hotel parking fee. And if you respectively decide not to complain, he’ll take the money… and the ticket back!
He’s an Elitist
Bourgeoisie much? He might not accept a 3LE fee if you are driving a sexy gear, but he wouldn’t mind it if your car is a canary yellow Verna.
