I was at Forum tonight, and happened to pass by Teens ‘n Kids. What surprised me was the number of warning signs, which can be evidenced in the following pic:

There were a total of at least 8 signs proclaiming things such as “No guarantee of items”, “Fixed price”, “Ne eating and drinking”, blah blah. The most hateful of all signs that I see anywhere are the ones that proclaim “For families only”. What if I, being a male, decide to visit there with my brother or my cousin. The shopkeepers wouldn’t let me enter, event hough we are family. What they should really write is “Only for couples”. Man I love fighting with these jerks who try to stop me over here :)

I remember that once in Dubai, my father and I went to Global Village. The guards did not let us enter saying that this was “Families Only”. My father ended up arguing with the guy and finally calling the manager and demanding him to either change the sign to say something in the lines of “Couples only”, or demnded for us to be let in. Needless to say, we went in that night!

    This picture depicts some very clear trends in karachi for an outsider. It shows economy is weak and law & order is in shambles. To me “No Gurantee on items bought” shows bad economy and “only for families” shows the shop owners are afraid of a robber group of men posing as customers.

    Shahbaz and IllusionFS:

    Karachi Metblogs have registered writers (You can see their names in the left column, under BLOGGERS) – and only they can post to the blog.

    Currently, Karachi’s Metblog is not accepting new authors. If some of our authors resign, there will be space for new. The authors apply to Metroblogging.com, which is an American company that has created city pages for various cities. You can view the blogs for others cities from the links on the left.

    It is hard to see from the picture because of the angle, but does it say ‘Shop Timming’? (double M)
