Sarah: Excuse me... EXCUSE ME, PLEASE! Sorry, madam, but I’m going to have to ask you to pay for that bread.







Salli: What bread?







Sarah: That bread, just er, just in your hand there.







Salli: You think this is your bread?







Sarah: Yes, it belongs to the supermarket. So if you could just-







Salli: Oh, really?! And where do you think the supermarket got it from, hm?







Sarah: Baladi bread... I think that’s from-







Salli: BALADI bread, it’s pronounced BALADI bread... stupid girl. It’s From Egypt. Your people stole this bread from my homeland.







AWKWARD SILENCE







Sarah: I see where you’re coming from, Madam, but I’m sure the supermarket paid... Egypt for the bread.







Salli: Of course- my mistake! The British Empire is famous for “visiting” countries and “paying” for the natural resources.







Sarah: I... er-







Salli: I, I, I?! It’s all ‘me me me’ with you imperialists, isn’t it? You dare to demand payment for the bread you stole from my people.







Sarah: It’s just how things work over here.







Salli: Oh, we know how you British work. You rape and you pillage and then... as if that isn’t enough... you take our bread.







Sarah: How about you just keep the bread.







Salli: Oh, I WILL be keeping the bread, because it is my birthright. (fist in the air) For the Egyptian people!! (gets into car)







Sarah: OK, madam, but this has just got to stop! This this can’t keep happening! Last week, you stole 8 towels-







Salli: Made from Egyptian cotton! (slams car door shut and now speaks with an English accent) Hahaha (puts on shades)... what an idiot!
