Seeking a roommate and yes, nationality is an issue

More of my continued obsession with the way people advertise their "bed spaces" in Abu Dhabi.

I don't know ... my friend and I burst in laughter at "Bed Space". It makes it sound that they the roommate would be paying for that bed space. Just a light-hearted note.

On another note, I don't really know why, but some of the announcements out there aren't necessarily posted by the people of the same requested nationality. I once, in sheer interest, called the one asking for a Philippino roommate. Guess what? The person who answered spoke in flagrant Egyptian-English accent.

Not knowing what that gentleman's agendas were, I glared in bewilderment and hung up.

well generally bed space means more than two people in the room and space is there only to put a single bed in short what they mean is limited space not space for furniture cupboards etc
