Maiwee….My way?

A man from  Zimbabwe  was walking and as he was about to cross a major road when a car with an English white driver hit him. Fortunately he survived with  few scratches. He began to cry saying maiwee, maiwee. His moaning began to infuriate the white driver who had stopped to check whether his victim was ok. “Stop saying my way, you African boy! It’s  not your way and it’s my way not yours”, he barked angrily and drove away.

Helping you understand you it’s a language barrier joke.  Amai=Mother. Most people as they cry or weep in dire situations in Zimbabwe they involuntarily call their mothers whether they are dead or alive.  They just say maiwee in torn broken voices.
