Laish Ma Y9eer In9ob Banzeen?

As i opened my window and turned off my engine on a hot & suffocating summer night, waiting for the fuel station worked to bestow upon me his divided attention and fill my car tank with gasoline, i began to lose my patience.

You see the man is over worked. There are a LOT of cars. LOTS of women inside. All of them (ok us) park and open our windows and wait. Of course i began to sweat and hate my life. and of course the man took forever to come fill my tank. and of course it took for ever to actually fill the tank. then it took forever for the man to come back and remove the thing from the tank and let me pay him. He is human after all. and by the time i took off i was in the worse mood ever.


Why did i have to wait for him. Why couldn’t i get out of my throne of a car, head to the machine, pick up the thingy (shesmah?) and fill my own tank? How hard is it? Are my hands going to be soiled? I don’t think so. Am i going to chip a nail? I don’t really care. Is it so heavy it’s going to hurt my back lifting it? Doesn’t look like it. Am i not supposed to walk in piece the land where no female shall walk? I am walking every where else why can’t i walk there? Why…

3aib? Min yegool 3aib? ana ba9eb banzeen mo baroo7 disco! Who said it was 3aib? Why can’t i fill my own tank? What would happen if i filled my own tank tell me? People would stare? they stare all the time so what’s new? Nothing would happen except the fact that the line at the fuel station would move faster. I am not saying all women should… kil wa7ed 7or… but i would like it very much if i had the option to actually choose to fill my own car’s tank if i  had to.

and you know what? The next time i am not going to wait.

Would you fill your own tank with fuel? What would you say/do if you saw a woman filling her car’s tank with fuel?

    You go girl !!!! thats what we need, more women who would think just like you!!! i personally never waited long for the guy to come, but ive been always interested to try it!!! and once i did, it felt 3aadi !! i dont think i looked bad !! so if its something you have to do, just do it 😀

      I was so close to doing that the last time i was filling my tank. Next time i will do it. I don’t have to bask in the heat just because some women think it’s taboo to fill your car with gasoline!


  4. I don’ t see anything wrong with women filling their tanks by themselves.


  5. I did that once awal maradait from US, I got all sorts of wierd looks shda3wa, o they guy working there came running to help, ham shda3wa!


  6. I always pump my own gas abroad (unless I go to a full service gas station)…. but in Saudi, I think I need to be allowed to drive a car first, then I will re-visit the pump the gas in my own car discussion.. 🙂

        The rule I hear they want to implement is to be over 35, and can not drive after a certain hour… but nothing yet 😥

  7. Break traditions, do it, fill your tank. I do it if there is a line, and I get weird looks, but who cares.. I have two hands and legs and I don’t need any help to do it..

    Girl Power!
