How the hell are we going to survive another increase in prices? The whole country is struggling. Everyone is somehow affected by the events following the Egyptian pound floatation. Now add to it today’s news published in ElAkhbar and we’re done.
Just this morning, the newspaper released a vicious table of 320 products that we will basically never afford again, after a tax increase raging from 20-60%. FYI, most of the products’ taxes increased by 60% . From beauty products that we will be deprived of to furniture that will be as expensive as cars, khalas we’re doomed.
Out of the 320 products announced, let’s agree that we can survive in Cairo without the next 20:
Avocados increased by 40% w khalas mesh lazem nakol guacamole
Life jackets increased by 20 % because basically we don’t deserve to survive. Khalas neghra2 ok
A 20% increase on face masks? Who wants a black pores free face anyway? Again we don’t deserve it
Deodorants are suffering from a 45% increase because we deserve to smell sweat all day long. We only deserve 2araf
Coffee machines? Are you insane? Pay 60% more if you think you are worthy of a headache-free morning
Toasters with a 60% tax increase? Can you even afford bread?
Why would you object to a 60% tax increase on blackberries? You don’t deserve anti-oxidants
Ladies, say goodbye to hair keratin. We will have to look like the lion king in ElSahel because we won’t pay 45% more
Okay guys, it’s time to beard up because shaving creams will destroy your income
Cast away hairdo, here we come. Shavers will go down in history as the one who got away
Mafish dental floss khalas and automatically there will not be anymore molokheya eating
Eating utensils? Yeah, in your dreams. Eat like a caveman, straight from the 7alla if you want to save the 60% tax increase
No wooden furniture for you, dear citizen. unless you want to pay 60% more
You don’t deserve to quench your thirst with cold water and hence your fridge will be 60% more expensive
