In Barka, "Cassanova in Mussayr" is apparently a regular fixture. Savant of the dating scene that this Omani fella is, he sauvely chats up the lady at the dehli under the ruse of buying portadello, or offers to pay for one Omani sista's groceries, 40 rials.
"Shukran-thank you" she applies curtly, before leaving him lonely.
Ah, lol. Poor guy. I ALMOST feel sorry for him.
You have to be some kind of desperate to try the dating scene at your local Lulu Hypermarket.
