Black Window Baiting

The new expat sport: when a black-windowed Sheikhmobile pulls up alongside at traffic lights, wave and smile at the opaque void of the rear window. If there's anything in there, it'll be freaked out that you can see it behind the one-way glass.

The easiest way to tell a PFE (pretentious fking expat) who has been here far too long is to listen to how they say "Bahrain". Should it be "Bahhhh-rain", with softly breathy phlegm pervading the centre in a woefully insulting attempt at an Harrabic accent, it's a PFE.

And if there's a bronchial throat-clearing at the start of "Qatar", you know they are really gone.
