FREE RIDE
An Emlyn Production

Rachid and Amir went to the city to visit their friend who is ill in the hospital. Grand-Uncle Emlyn had given them their bus fares, some money for food, and thirty-five dirhams to fetch him a large bottle of super-market wine.

The boys visited their friend, then went to the supermarket where they decided to use their return bus fare money to buy their favourite Grand-Uncle an extra bottle of wine. They had a plan to get home free of charge. They waited at the traffic lights then jumped on the back of a van when the driver was not looking.

Would you whack them for that?

I think this one boils down to cultural differences.  When in Rome and all.  

Given the fact that the free ride looks like a normal practice then I will thank them for their kindness and enjoy my wine.  No whacks.

Now if this happened here in the USA (well first of all they couldn't buy wine for me) so it is a moot point.  But if they just happened to for whatever reason steal a free ride this way then I would whack them.

I suspect Grand Uncle Emlyn will be so sozzled after drinking down his bottle of extra special wine, that he won't be capable of whacking them.

So that's two free rides you get boys Laughing

I'll tell them that I appreciate the extra bottle of wine, but I'd enjoy whacking them more, and since they're such good and thoughtful boys they'll take the whacking without worrying about if they really deserve it or not.

Under these circumstances I believe I'm due some change. I'm going to whack them and then thank them.

I don't want them to feel no good deed goes unpunished, so I won't whack them. I will tell them exactly why I think free rides of this sort are a bad idea. I'd hate for them to end up as road kill.

I see Kat's point of view, but the boys could too easily have dropped the wine onto the road when clinging to the van.  I could have lost both bottles!  I'm going to whack them!  Wink

Regarding  في صحتك (bisahatika!) which Google translates as ''good health! / cheers!", in Moroccan Arabic we say "b'sakha!", which is also used where an American would say "You're welcome!" after being thanked, so I know not the exact meaning.

Alcohol is legal in Morocco and pleasant wine is produced around Meknes, nevertheless alcoholic drinks are hard to come by - except in package tourist hotels, which are not places I enter.  Big towns will have two or three discreetly signed licenced bars - dark bare drinking saloons with upright chairs and tables, men only - never within the walls of the old Arab quarter or within sight of a mosque.

Although many towns and large areas are dry of alcohol, I know where wine can be found on my travels, but one should be discreet in buying and drinking it, respecting that most Moroccans observe the religious interdict.  In reality, I would not dream of asking the boys to handle alcohol, nor would they be served.

Regarding travel,  in rural areas I would not have to wait long at the roadside before someone would give me a lift.  In deference to my age a young man would give up his seat in the cab and clamber onto the back.  I might offer the driver the equivalent of the bus fare but it would often be refused.

The official shared taxis (taxi moshtarak) squeeze in six passengers beside the driver and everybody pays the same officially set fare.
