Sucks to be Sri Lankan (even in Sri Lanka)
September 26, 2008
I’ve been on the prowl for a new apartment these days in the Dehiwala, Mt. L, and Ratmalana area. And it is turned out to be a nightmare. Everywhere I go, I get the same answer.
“Sorry Sir, this apartment is only for foriegners.”
“Oh, when you spoke over the phone, we thought you were an expat.”
“No. This is a holiday home. And it’s meant for people from overseas.”
“Don’t take it personally, it’s a policy decision.”
Geez. What’s with the all the local hate? Do I really have that much of a godaya look?
Getting second grade treatment in your own country sucks big time. Especially when it’s a policy decision.
