A ride with the angel of death!

Once upon a night - a late night - a taxi was roaming the streets of Agouza when an old bearded man in a white galabeya stopped him and politely asked for a ride to Mostafa Mahmoud Mosque becuase he could not walk any further. The taxi driver eyed the tired worn out old man carefully and asked him to get in the vehicle.

A few meters later, a young man stopped the taxi and told the driver that he wanted to go to Game3at el Dowal street. The taxi driver told him that he had to drop the old man first at the mosque. The young man looked at the driver with huge perplexed eyes and told him that there was no one in the car.

The driver insisted that there was an old man in the seat next to him and the young man who refused to get in the car insisted that the driver was stoned. Freaked out of his wits, the taxi driver asked the old passenger about what was going on. The old man calmly replied that he was the angel of death and that he came for him, but he was willing to wait until he prayed "Al Fagr" in the mosque then take his soul.

The taxi driver drove to the mosque in tears, got out of the car, and went to pray. He finished, came back, and discovered that the taxi was gone!!

It will never stop Fido Dido ... as long as people are hungry - or greedy - they will always have the will to find a way into tricking poor gullible Egyptians.

Yeah oh lord Yasmine:)

It will probably be hard for his family in later years to understand why he went "where's my taxi you piece of shit!" on his actual death bed.
But we know.

Is that really you, Asser?:)

Damn, that poor man. I don't know what will hurt him more, his financial loss or feeling like an absolute imbecile.

I heard this story so many times...in Egypt (Mansura, Cairo, Alex) in Saudi, Syria and Jordan. It's almost an urban legend or....perhaps it really is the angel of death but this time after your automobile!
