Picture, Story, Theory…"Allah Yewafgak Ya Khoy"

It feels like I have paid a visit to the Mokhabarat. I'm sick, I took the day off and I still woke up at 9:09, god damn the Body Clock. (Going back a week or two) Its 2:43, I'm stuck in a traffic jam. "Allah Yewafgak Ya Khoy" her voice cracked in more ways than I thought possible, just another Um-Uthaina traffic light, a female, still wrinkle free held an ill baby, went up to different windows of different cars spotting sympathy. There he was, apparently a rich father of the two young girls in the back seat, five or six years old. She tried exposing the baby's face, I watched while the young girls climbed over one another to get a glimpse of its face, once they did they gaped at it. Three seconds later the woman walks away and the two girls in the backseat have big smiles on their faces, they lifted their hands and shook them, forcing themselves to giggle. Below: (from a website that discuses the works of Sigmund Freud)

"The defense mechanisms, Denial involves blocking external events from awareness. If some situation is just too much to handle, the person just refuses to experience it. This is a primitive and dangerous defense, no one disregards reality and gets away with it. It can operate by itself or, more commonly, in combination with other, more subtle mechanisms that support it."
The picture is a year old, its the most relevant I thought.

i used to feel sorry for those people, until i've been through this situation where i felt that they r fooling people, a kid selling gum on a traffic light, all the gum where thrown on the street and the kid was collecting them, when i saw him i felt that life is so cruel... i went back and gave him money, after two days i heared the same story happened with different people at different places...
how can we tell if those people r honest?? tab y don't they try to do smth useful instead?? it's so annoying to stop on a traffic light these days cause some are really rude..
i don't know how much of sense my writting is as am using one hand only (the left one) as i fell on my right one :(

wala ya ghaloosh I don't think there is a way to tell if they are really in need of money or not, we have a lot of talent in Jordan (acting). Salamtek hope your arm is ok now.
