Conversation with Jameel

I spoke with Jameel for the first time last night and my first thought was to have the traditional conversation that one might have with an Arab in Israel.
It would go like this (transliterated because I can't write Arabic)
Masa Alchir
{Arab Grunts}
Malay
{Arab Grunts}
Jareeda Minfadlak
{Arab Grunts and gives you a newspaper}
Shukrun.

Our conversation didn't go exactly that way, and after thinking about it, it could be because Jameel is the first arab I've talked to who didn't work at a gas station.
