Yelling "F*CK OFF!": Might work in the States or the UK or somewhere in Europe. Will not work at all here and is generally assured you will be responded in double.
Be firm, be yourself, be respectful. If you have someone or a guide nagging you or tagging along, tell them you have a family in Fes. Idriss is a good name. Or, tell them you are Russian. If you really have your sh*t together, speak Arabic. Works like a fart in an crowded elevator.
They won't waste their time with someone making as much as anyone else in North Africa.
But unless you are actually tough (and not relying on someone tough to save you), don't count on anyone pulling you out of the mess you made when you decided to tell a Maghreb Romeo or guide to loudly f*ck off. Only a few (and this includes cops) will immediately sympathize.
Say this instead:
HEAR MOROCCAN ARABIC: Salaam alikoom
HEAR MOROCCAN ARABIC: la bas?
HEAR MOROCCAN ARABIC: Hamdoo LilLah
Bayti: Care for the Street Kids of Morocco
Bargaining pt 1
