Teenage boyz of the Eastern Province November 25, 2006Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture.
It is now winter here according to the local population. Which means it is about 23 degrees celcius. Really freakin’ cold in other words. Most people are now dressed in their winter gear. Many Saudi men and boys have abandonded their white thobe in exchange for either a grey,blue,brown, black or beige thob. Many young men see this time of the year as a chance to dress in a more non-traditional way and are now dressed in trousers and jumpers a’la hip hop style. Not so cool actually. Most of them doesn’t really seem to know how to combine different items of clothing and the results are more than often a disaster. Their knitted yoyoyo winter hats really make me laugh. Looks kinda dumb if I may say so since it isn’t actually cold!
There is a lot to be said about teenage boys in Saudi Arabia and one of them is that they are often quite annoying. Aha yes, aren’t all teenage boys annoying? Naa, not like these lot. They travel in packs, stare at women (I mean stare) like sickos (if no man is around), annoy people in shops and are just plain rude and annoying. And most of them are ugly too which could be sorted out by shaving their little bumfluff moustache off.
Of course you meet some boys which have a proper upbringing and treat people with respect but most just don’t.
They must have a seriously twisted upbringing to be acting like this. Is it perhaps because many of them aren’t used to natural contact with females or is it just really bad upbringing? I never saw this kind of behaviour in Lebanon. I think the Saudis have a huge problem if this is how they are letting their sons act.
