Yesterday, Mr. Chemistry and I were out to lunch at a restaurant in Jabal Amman. As we were sitting down, eating, talking and enjoying the general day. I saw a couple sitting behind us, they were enjoying their food, each others company and showing some love. Actually, it wasn’t just a little bit..it was a bit TOO much!
They were making out in the restaurant! MAKING OUT, I tell you!
I told my co-workers this story and the first question they asked me is if they were foreigners but they weren’t which could have been an excuse.
I am not a fan of people making out in public, because I think it’s inconsiderate. What you do between you and your partner is your private business not everyone needs to see it.
Mind you, this isn’t the first time I have seen this level of PDA (public display of affection). It seems that it has become more rampant. People are making out, groping and sharing saliva more freely in public.
I’m sure you are about to say, they are in love, let them be! No, I will not. There should be some common decency for people who choose not to engage in this kind of behavior.
I just don’t like the way Jordan is becoming more liberal (Not in a good way liberal). There are so many great things we can take from the west like work ethic, educational advances, scientific advances, and other things but we take the bad. The drinking, PDA and horrible fashion sense. (Okay, it’s not all horrible…but some of it is bad!)
Yet, things change and we must accept change. Even if we don’t agree with the changes, sadly. (Okay, not really. I don’t just accept it, I write blog posts!)
So, couples out there everywhere…weigh in, please. Actually, not just couples but people.
PDA or no?
