Arabic script: 

رفيقتي عزمت كل اصحابنا على عرسها، الا انا شو بعمل؟ 

قصة جديدة بعتولي ياها انتو، خلينا نحكي عنها بالعربي. 

اكيد هيدى الشيء بزعلني لو انا محلك، بس فيكي تعملي شغلتين فيكي تطنشيها وما تقولي شيء ابداً، بالعربي منقول لاجرك،  بالعكس هيك بتكوني وفرتي على حالك مصاري لان كان لازم تشتري لها هدية او كادو cadeau.

هلأ إذا بدك توقحي عين فيكي تحملي التليفون وتدقي لها وتقولي لها انت وحدة بلا ذوق وبلا اخلاق، خلصت!

English Translation: 

My friend invited all our friends to her wedding except me. What do I do? A new story shared by you. Let’s talk about it in Arabic. 

Of course this would make me sad if I were you, but you can do two things. You can ignore her and not say anything at all. In Arabic we say, ‘for your leg’. On the contrary, you would have saved yourself some money because you needed to buy her gift. 

But if you want to be unapologetic, you can hold the telephone and call her and tell her you have ‘zero taste and zero moral’. It’s done!
