Read this seminal post on the peculiarity of communication in Cairo and lack thereof. I feel she has competently described the struggle some of us face reconciling the sparse language and secular directness of a western upbringing/education with the tortuous pleasantries and obsequious fatalism (to my way of thinking) of colloquial Egyptian and its habitual use. Or you might get something different from it.
