The hot blond, at my door

    It's Wednesday, which means, first thing in the morning there will be two gorgeous looking early teen ladies passing by my door. it has been their routine for the past year or so. Every Wednesday morning, they show up, with a cheerful smile and sparkling eyes and pass by me. As we have agreed before..

    They always show up on time, eager, enthusiastic, but they had one additional quality I didn't see anywhere I went in most Arab countries. They had pride in what they were doing.

    These two gorgeous young ladies work as garbage collectors, when they have some extra time, they do some landscaping. These are no ugly ogres I'm telling you. They are drop dead gorgeous. They can, if they wanted or have been the type, work at a strip club, but they were too proud to do that.

    Too proud to go strip for money, however they were working as garbage collectors, and they were more proud of it than I've seen some people in the Arab world in their easy office job in some bank. Finishing up the cross words, playing solitaire or harassing their lady co-workers.

    This sparkle of proud to do their best job at collecting the garbage, really makes me wonder how they think. We have been raised to look down upon these jobs, not to mention how most feel. They're broken, they're ashamed to do it. But not these two!

    If you had to work as a garbage collector for a living, would you be proud of it? These ladies, apparently, are very proud of it!

    I found them worth of my respect and admiration!

    & my respect, admiration & love as well..
    Wow!!! I wish everyone had pride in what they do. I think the key here is that they are doing something good for people and for the environmet (not like the coprotae office stooges who have money as their greater power).
    Hats down for those lovely ladies :))
    show us the pictures so we admire them as well ;) well yeah, there's nothing wrong with what they are doing, at least they are doing it with pride as you said
    what's wrong is to sit and be happy while others pay for you living.
    ehem, shu malhum il bankers??!!

    i hear that lots of people in jordan will not do jobs like that or be 7ares so they import workers from egypt and other places while jordanians are jobless because they will not do this kind of work...i think this is beyond pathetic!
    People's attitude towards such jobs are not nice at all! Some look at these people as if they were less than humans which is really sick! It is a job like anyother and as long as a person is doing his job well then this person deserves nothing but complete respect!!

    Then you should come and see the ladies who shine shoes at a major hotel here in Tampa..I watched one of them for a while and what amazed me that she was treated with the outmost respect by her clients who were men only..
    well i wont mind working as a garabage person but only for a while, staying for a longer time will not make me proud only because i havent improved ya3ni i would not be proud because of my failer not because of the occupation is self
    I highly respect that. To be honest, I don't think I would have the guts to do it.
    The problem in the middle east is the people around us.. I mean most guys who goes to study abroad work as waiters or dry cleaners or wash dishes at a hotel or a restaurant or so.. I am not saying that its wrong or humiliating, on the contrary i feel proud of the people who work their way up.. but whats funny is that the minute they reach their country they wont accept anything less than a senior position with a 4 figure salary..
    but you have to admit its not that easy to do it here, people would not only talk badly about you but about your parents and family as well.. you know "ibn flan o flaneh 3am yishtighel zabbal"
    you should not care about what people say but you will definitely get affected when it hurts and saddens your family..

    I'm sure hardworking people will appreciate it

    Same here... Respect! :)

    I'll ask them next Wednesday.

    Simply Me
    Yep, that is true

    Oh my god, look at the Canadian flag next to your name! Ahhh, it's been a long time since I last saw it like that!
    You know, soon, Poor Jordanians are not going to be able to afford even that!

    You're right, people should have a lot of respect towards people who provide them with services.

    Noura
    You know? There's nothing wrong with any job as long as it's decent! I have respect for these people

    Manal Y
    Hey Manal, it's been a long time no see. Awesome to see you here again
    That's a different way to look at it. But I'm sure no one (except in our part of the world) takes garbage collection as a career
    But even if that was the case, I see nothing wrong with any decent work. Ambition is not mandatory

    Batoul
    I highly respect your honesty Batoul, most people simple can't do it.

    PrincessN
    See, THAT'S EXACTLY what is wrong. People SHOULD be proud despite all of that.
    I rushed to read the article to see who the women were, and at the line where you revealed they were janitors, I burst out laughing.

    I wouldn't be proud of it Qwaider, but you know a minimum wage garbage collector or dishwasher in the USA can easily make much more than a university degreed computer programmer in Amman. So they can arguably have a higher standard of living.

    Knowing that, would you rather be a janitor in LA or a programmer in Amman ?

    That's a great thing man! I dunno honestly if I work as a garbage collector, if I will be proud or not - I am not gonna be a hypocrite so I will say I really don't know!

    What I know is that if I am a baker it would be one of the most wonderful things in the world.

    I am very proud of these two women you spoke of! It's a good thing to see in our society
