Earlier that month of November, an Arabic guy at the University added me to MSN. I had no clue who he was, obviously he used a fake name, but he knew me. He really knew me in person and seemed to be infatuated with me, but refused to tell me who he was. I ignored him for a while because I thought it was a childish joke and I didn’t want to spend my valuable boring time with him. However, when we made that email, things changed and became more evident with whom he was.
So who were the cute Arab girls that we chose? What was the story that we had to agree upon that made the story plausible?
I am not that imaginative when it comes to names or nationalities of these cute Arab girls. So I made it simple. They were four girls that lived in the dormitory at the University. They are all international students of Lebanese origin, and they were all friends from long ago. That’s why they all used the same email. Yes, I know. Very cheesy, but you will be surprised how many “guys” fell for it.
So the story began, and we added almost every Arabic person we knew to the contact list. My friend and I both told the same story. At times she used the account, and at times I used it. However, I first used it sitting in the corner in the lab with her on my side laughing while executing the mischievous deed.
To our surprise, not many guys blocked us. Many were curious to know who we were, and why we added them. Some of them even sent us pictures of them selves asking for the return favor. I was a bit shocked, but to continue the game, I had to come up with pictures quickly. Knowing me and my internet search capabilities, I did the obvious thing any desperate person looking for pictures. I used Google! I didn’t Google for any picture of any girls. On the contrary, I wanted it to be so believable that I searched the following term: “Arabic girl picture ASA.” I made sure I got the girl’s pictures from somewhere far far away, like USA for example. So I found four pictures of pretty Arabic girls and sent it to whom ever wanted it.
Fake? No. Why would they be fake? They were so believable, that one guy believed that he has seen one of the cute Arab girls walking on campus the other day. He refused to believe other wise. He saw her. He saw her before. I kept thinking, what the hell? Is this guy for real?
Another guy that I added to the list was my mischievous friend. He was a computer geek and has done far worse things in the past to people than I ever did. I know, I witnessed it and laughed at many occasions. When he added us back, the first thing he said, “Hello cute Arab girl, or should I say Mona!” I said, “fuzz!! Don’t tell anyone it is me you freak!!” He said, “can I play?” I said sure, “here is the password.” I obviously told him the story and I knew he was cracking up so hard that his eyes were tearing from laughter.
Those are few of the incidents we had with males. However, what about the female Arabic girls’ reactions? What did they think?
Unfortunately, I was still part of the clique of the “known” Arabic girls on campus. Obviously, I added all the girls that I knew. Most of them were friends of friends or acquaintances. A lot of them didn’t block us at first, but did something worse. Something that made me wonder how the hell these girls were raised growing up! They started swearing at us, called us horrible names in Arabic and English and saying, “you are not cute, I am you bitch.” I was more than shocked. I just replied back saying, “just block us, no need for the foul language.” So, most of the girls on the list blocked us, and thank God they did, but some of them were pissed. So pissed that they tried every possible way to find out who it was. Some were smart and said, “is this Mona? Only Mona knows anything about computers. She is not online on MSN. So it must be her!”
What was I to do then?
Well, they knew Mona would do such a thing because she knew a lot about computers, but can she go on MSN at the same time? I did in the lab on the computer next to me, but was I able to do the same thing at home? With one computer? At home I tried something different. I found an open source messenger that you can customize it to chat with various messengers in one, such as Trillian. I was able to have Mona, my friend, and cute Arab girls online at the same time. Smart? Maybe. :lmao:
For a few hours it was fun, but I had watching eyes. Who saw us? Where did they see us since we were so cautious of our whereabouts while chatting? What else happened that made the whole thing blow out of proportion?
