My favorite word in Bahraini slang is "hraar". In arabic its written هرار. It basically means Bullshit. Someone asks: What was the speech about? Answer: Hraar about democracy and unity... the usual hraar. Someone thats feeding you the bullshit is usually referred to as a "Harraaar" with a special emphasis on the rolling R's. This word is very useful in your every day life. The newspaper in the morning usually has a couple of hraar headlines talking about bogus investments, or hraar about politicians dicing up this country for their own benefit, then there is the hraar TV and radio that waste 3 minutes of precious airtime about "exchanging cables of good wishes".... and since the 16th of december is coming up... my morning commute will be tarnished with hraar on billboards congradulating the people about the occassion... when in reality its petty businessmen trying to land fat government contracts.
Another form of hraar is "one of the many national airlines, but I won't name it" would cancel your booking so someone else can take your seat. When you start to complain, they explain that this is normal procedure.. and that there must be a mistake of some sort... and that they'll make sure you'll arrive on time.. and every thing is taken care of.... just try to catch the next flight.
