Only in Saudi Arabia ...
My friend from Bahrain was in Saudi Arabia for a business meeting. She flies to Riyadh. Checks into a fancy hotel, and goes to her room.
She opens her suitcase, gets out her clothes, and proceeds to the cupboard, to naturally hang her clothes. You don't want to wear a creased suit when you are attending a business meeting, even when it is covered with the abaya (black cloak) and shayleh (head scarf).
... so she proceeds to hang her clothes. Imagine her shock and confusion when she opens the cupboard and gets out the hangers and see the STICKERS on them: "Hanger for MEN" and "Hanger for WOMEN!"
Knowing my friend, I knew that she broke the law and used the MEN's hanger to hang her clothes. My question is: WHY are there different hangers? What is the aim ? What is the objective? Why are there men only and women only hangers? AND what is the penalty for hanging your clothes on the wrong hanger?
My friend has a prize for the most convincing answer!!
