It’s the holy month of Ramadan. This means a month of fasting, reflecting, richly filled tables, and positive vibes. But during Ramadan we also experience some struggles: bad breath, sleepiness, and people who behave differently. Let us introduce to you the 11 types you will meet during Ramadan:
1. The Hangry One
[han-gry] (hang-gree) adj. “A state of anger caused by lack of food; hunger causing a negative change in emotional state.”
We all know someone who gets hangry during the month of Ramadan. These people get really moody because of the hungriness but thank God their mood changes after the first bite of their food.
2. The Napper
The Napper has developped a special strategy to survive Ramadan. They sleep from dawn until sunset.They are only awake when it’s time to eat (and during night).They live life like a true vampire
3. The Excuser
The Excuser is the person who takes distance from all social activities. His main excuse will be the fact that he is fasting.
These are some common phrases often used by Excusers.
“Are you going to play basketball?” – Sorry bro, I’m fasting.
“Can you take out the trash, please?”. – Wallahi I can’t, I’m super hungry.
4. The Halal Guy Before Iftar
The Halal Guy interprets Ramadan as a 9 to 5 job. After iftar he goes back to his ordinary behavior.
5. The Greedy One
Foodcomas on a daily basis: this is what the Greedy Ones need to deal with during Ramadan. They overeat every iftar because they think they willl regret it the next day. Although they regret their decision many times, they’ll never learn from their mistakes!
6. The Planner
We all have to admit that our fasting day exists of planning what to eat at sunset. But the planner is one of a kind: He goes beyond just planning what to eat. He even knows what he wants to eat the whole week.
7. The Haram Police
The Haram Police exists the whole year, but they are more active during the month of Ramadan. It is their moment to shine. Their tasks consist of judging everything and everyone on social media.
8. The Complainer
Being hungry during ramadan is nothing new, but the complainer is the person who makes it obvious by repeating it at least a 100 times a day. *sigh*
9. The Lazy One
During Ramadan, we’re all less active. A lack of energy causes laziness, but there are a bunch of people who take it to the next level. We can describe these kind of people as a combination of the Napper and the Excuser.
10. The “I’m watching what I eat”
We all know some people who take advantage of Ramadan by watching what they eat. They are trying to be healthy, but in the end these are actualy the ones gaining weight!
11. The Resolution Maker
Ramadan is a month of self reflecting, in which we can work on our flaws. The Resolution Maker has a to do-list of things he wants to work on. It can go from quitting smoking to becoming more helpful. A true inspiration!
