Re: How to order or ask for tobacco
ive never had issues but all the places ive gone to are ran by white people or are right by a college so theres no issues with "shisha" and "hookah"
if they dont understand "shisha tobacco" they either cant speak english at all, dont know any thing, or just dont have it.
i bet that lady was trying to get your ID but the wordings between you two probably got confused
and as to the word "hookah" iirc it was what white people that went into the middle east heard people saying supposedly in reference to the pipe and it was the closest way they could say it... then again it could have been a misunderstanding, the term "powwow" came from when white people saw a native dancing and people were saying powwow so they thought thats what dancing was called but it was the dancers name
