Translation: “According to The Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice; passing coffee to women is not allowed.
Thanks for your cooperation!”
All I can say is thank God I am not where that sign is. Lallamona posted a couple of pictures in her blog last week and it has been creating quite a stir in the blogosphere – and why not?
I only posted one of the pictures as the other one has nothing to do with coffee (although it is equally atrocious). The sign made me think – why on earth should coffee not be served to women? Is it something about coffee or is it something about women? I may be treading on dangerous ground here, stepping on cultural toes, if you know what I mean. Yet I cannot help but “yelp” about the sign! (I did in fact literally yelp when I read the sign in the blog.)
Are coffee beans evil? Hmm, maybe in a sense – they do something to your system to make you feel better and perkier. Are women to be protected from this “evil”? I think not! I am sure you guys are ready to voice out what you think as well! (By the way, I like the category this post was placed under: Tell the truth and run – now I gotta run!)
