The woman holding the camera is heard telling the hanging maid: 'Oh crazy, come back.'The terrified maid is seen screaming 'hold me, hold me', just before her hand slipped and she fell down to hit the awning, which appears to soften the impact.
The employer made no reaction as she continued filming.
American lady living in Kuwait commenting on daily occurrances through her warped perspective. (A Desert Girl Early Tribute to Easter) Ok, I had a serious question from a military guy (who is lucky enough to leave post once in a while). But for a man to make direct eye contact with a woman (et vice-versa) implies something personal.
Her travels take us beyond the boundaries of normalcy. Facebook Group: Desert Girl on Kuwait at https:// E-mail [email protected] He sounds like a very decent kind of guy and wanted to know how to talk to Arab women. I think that many of the military’s policies are alarmist, written by people on 2-year tours who take home with them absolutely nothing about the culture or country in which they were stationed. You go thousands of miles from home and all you hear is how NOT to get to know the society. People like me who have lived and worked in Kuwait for years rarely have the opportunity to talk to military people about Kuwait and the culture. I try to speak to decision makers at every opportunity and get them to see Kuwait – from someone who has first-hand knowledge. If she holds the eye contact and/or smiles – you can proceed to step 2).
The Kuwaiti woman filmed her maid land on a metal awning and survive, then posted the incident on social media, Al-Seyassah newspaper reported.
The 12-second video shows the maid hanging outside the building, with one hand tightly gripping the window frame, as she begged for help in an apparent last-minute change of mind.

You will know when there is a lot of Bluetooth activity when you see people scrambling to send messages on their phone every few minutes.He said that he and his friends have been scared into believing that they would go to jail if they dared to chat with one of the ladies, so even if the ladies are in initiating contact - they don't even make eye contact. The top brass is often too busy to get off the base to see the real Kuwait also; These are hard-working guy. You have to take what you have learned in the States as appropriate behavior and twist it. Because if someone saw her talking to a strange man in public, she would be viewed as a bad girl, a tramp, a ho, a skankyass mall whore. Desert Girl's Method of Approach in 3 easy-to-follow steps (not yet available in stores): Step 1 – Direct Eye Contact First, DIRECT EYE CONTACT. If she gives you a dirty look (spits, says something), then obviously it’s off.I have a hard time leaving my office and I don’t have to have an escort with me. The key to any relationship in Kuwait is discretion. If her family members saw you talking to her, they would get mad because you had just inadvertently insulted their sister and therefore their family/tribe/ancestors. Step 2 – The Smile Look around, make sure that no one is looking, and give her a smile.I can’t imagine how difficult it would be for a general to just drive around and check things out; or for that matter, to integrate at all into society here. If she smiles back or signals in some way that it is ok to proceed, go to Step 3 Step 3 – The Exchange This is where you have to be really discreet.(Write to me – I would be honored to show you the real Kuwait and introduce you to people who would take you to weddings, diwaniyas, cultural events.) The military in Kuwait doesn’t have any programs where people like me can talk to soldiers and tell our stories - at least make people feel more comfortable living/working in their host country. Arab female friends are quite willing to get to know (maybe not date, but establish friendships) with American men. My Kuwaiti friend, Mona, has a beautiful 23 year old daughter and she told me that she wouldn’t mind her daughter marrying an American man – as long as he’s Moslem. Kuwaiti men have been marrying foreign women for years. Ok, Kuwaiti dudes I knew in the US found that the fastest way to learn about American culture and language was through their American girlfriends. There are several mediums for making the number exchange (well, actually just giving her yours) and it should happen quickly so that no one sees you: Bluetooth (high-tech) Method. Not only are people everywhere in Kuwait at coffee shops for a cup o’ Joe, but they are also there to meet.
