1. You have no qualms about bribing a traffic cop.
You learn how to pass a balled-up 5 LE note into the palm of the cop at the traffic signal while appearing to cruise past with an arm casually extended out of your car window.
2. You start understanding IBM.
Inshallah Bokra Malesh (God willing — tomorrow — sorry) is something you will hear a lot from Egyptians at the most random of times.
Plumbers will leave bathroom repairs unfinished and will effortlessly commit to “IBM” each time you call to enquire why he hasn’t shown up. Ask your taxi driver if he knows the address you need to get to and he will leave it to divine intervention: “Inshallah.” Request extra cheese on your well-done burger — which will invariably get messed up — and the response will be a “Maalesh” (never mind).
