A total of 26 women graduated from Jeddah-based Dar Al Hekma Women’s College on Tuesday, having completed a 10-day course on how to sell underwear, reports Arabian Business, citing a report by Saudi newspaper Al Watan.
Let’s be honest, there isn’t anything about this course that isn’t funny; it’s only 10 days long, only 26 women attended, and all they did was learn how to sell underwear.
Are the skills they gained specifically for underwear, or can they be transferred to something else? In other words, does this course qualify the 26 women to sell anything else, like shoes?
And if people needed to be trained on how to sell underwear, does this mean the bored shopkeepers at La Senza are bad underwear sellers? Are there techniques used specifically in Saudi Arabia, or are they universal?
