A story from Raef's wedding. Years ago Raef had a more self-expressive fashion sense than he does now. He favoured puffy white shirts and sometimes sported a fairly big bangle-style earring. One day a car broke down near Raef's house, and he helped the guys out with jumper leads or something.
A friend of Raef's was arriving just as they drove away - he heard one say - "That guy was really kind to help us out" and the other said "Yeah, but didn't you think he looked like a gay pirate?"
