Notices on Doors and Windows!!

Post by Chocolate Eclair » Wed Jul 10, 2013 6:53 am

Has anyone noticed the notices on doors and windows of buildings along Ramla front from near Blue Sky Restaurant ans going right up to the pumping station, approx 2.5kM. Also on the new houses between the said pumping station and the Tod to Banana Island Road.

They are in Arabic so do not know what hey say but they have an official stamp on them?

Does anyone know what they are, is it a local election or what?

Surly there's at least one Egyptian along a 2.5kl stretch that can speak English? Anyway, they may have taken a feather out of my book as I had my friend write me a sign for the front door in Arabic so its popularity my already have spread. My sign, tied to the front door reads-

One ring of the bell, door answered in one minute.
Two rings of the bell, door answered in 1.5 minutes.
Continuous rings of the bell, three minutes to reach the door, three minutes to go back for correct key.
Multiple rings with hammering on the glass punctuated with shouts of my name, door opened next day.

I had a bad door day on Monday, continually shuffling my way to answer it as I've pulled a muscle in my back. They expect an immediate answer to their rings and bangs.

Now now, naughty naughty, choc choc, you and I have a good idea of that, even if the rest do not.

I would give my old mate Nubi a ring, though I fear he may be hitting the bottle, ramadan, or no ramadan, and as every one knows, its no use telling him what to do with said notice.

take a photo and ask one of the guys in your village to translate

Probably a local elections notice, vote for ''Chocy for new power Governor'' Could generate interest.
