I remember once receiving a humorous email that satirically gives us the effects of globalization. It shows the famous McDonald’s double arch all over the world map, including Afghanistan and other war torn countries.
A bit closer to home, I have been noticing the effects of globalization all over the country. According to a friend and to quote her, “globalization has a negative effect on this country.” I agree with her totally considering the fact that we were having a coffee at Marina Mall yesterday afternoon. I see bed-heads, people in ravaged clothes that they supposedly bought for a fortune. I even offered someone to tear up his clothes for a much cheaper price than what his “A|X” shirt costs on the market.
Oh and the funniest scene I observed were two guys in navy blue pants and white shirts. No tie, a shirt unbuttoned to reveal their chests, a MASS of MESSY hair on the head (the bed-head look) and what’s so cute is that they’re wearing their merchant marine uniforms and strutting around the mall. They looked totally like shit; I mean what the fuck…you go to work like THAT?
I honestly have no idea what people think when they go out looking like that. Your hair is a mess? Well wear a baseball cap if you don’t feel like brushing it down. Barbers are there for a good reason; the hair accessories industry will probably declare bankruptcy because of this phenomenon.
If I was a girl, and my man woke up looking like that next to me, I’d scream bloody murder and boot his ass right outta bed. Trust me everyone, that ‘bed-head’ look REALLY looks like crap. Get rid of it. Globalization is meant to have a positive effect, but this lovely Kuwaiti population seems to weed out the good from the bad. And use only the bad side of it.
Give this country a good image home and abroad everyone, looking like shit is exactly what it is…like shit.
