Saudi Arabia is famous for its hospitality. Guests must we treated very well and must never leave with an empty stomach.
This presents problems for census takers with the government’s General Authority for Statistics. They need to collect information, then move on to the next house.

The news website Morroco News says that the agency created this ad to gently remind people that census takers are at work. They appreciate all offers of coffee and meals, but must keep on the go.
Redditor /u/Sensitive-Shoe2040 offers a translation of the dialog–if you really need one. The census taker’s body language conveys enough of the story.
