First of all Zooropa, a friend of mine [English] has recommended an area to visit on the WB. She tells me that it has all to offer and see in relation to 'the old ways' but with a more touristic approach. Sounds OK to me so we will venture forth when you get here. Don't ask me what the place is called as I've forgotten.
I agree with GD's point in ref. to perceived anger, and also carries.
My problem is, is that when I hear what I perceive as aggressive tones, it cuts through me like a red hot knife. Always has done since a child, not saying I was brought up in such a household, I wasn't. Just don't take to it. When my friend is on her phone, she finishes the conversation and I immediately ask her what she was arguing about. It is usually just a mundane point/fact containing no aggression at all, just a very verbal exchange. ''All Egyptians talk like this'' she usually replies.
As to whether Zooropa's comment on an 'anger/argument gene' was a tongue in cheek remark I couldn't figure out, but I certainly feel that some folk are born with that streak in them.
As for the problems in the village I asked what was the possibility of a revenge killing. She didn't know, but the brothers friend had already mentioned that the hospital fees and money had been handed over, so lets hope that that will be an end to the matter.
Without doubt a bad attitude to have, but apparently the victim was considered to be a real nuisance around the village, just taking anything that wasn't nailed down, swearing at anyone and everybody, suddenly taking his clothes off in the street, peeing and dumping in public. This is not the boys fault as he suffers from a mental disability, but ''normal'' people have very little patience towards such as he. My friends downs syndrome brother suffers many a time at the hands of the other kids in the village, she grows tied of continually having to intervene and complain to the parents that really do not show any levels of concern towards what she knows is privately referred to as one of ''the devils children.''.
