That ought to go down quite well.
Funny you say that Face because I thought of sending an email or calling the HR department at that company and getting their opinion on the behaviour of this manager! But I'm too nice for this.....sadly.

u should just tell them that if you do not get a written appology for his appalling behaviour, u will refer the case to the ILO (the international labour organisation) and tell them u will c them in court.

that should stir up a little office tension. LOL

My search is well advanced. As I am moving for 2 weeks to UAE, I have to face many interviews with Westerners and/or Arabics. First contact I had thru email/phone was positive and I am expecting to get more result there.

Sure you had a bad experience with this guy, but don't stop there. I believe that you had to face such situation (with your compatriots or others). Each knock you have will make you more robust, and you have to 'enjoy' this experience for next.

Good luck for your searchs, if you are persistent, I am sure that you will give us good news soon.

Samy
Hi Samy,

You're right. Now I feel more prepared the next time I encounter such people. In fact I'm hoping he would call to see why I didn't follow-up after our conversation so I can let him have it.

Good to know that your dual citizenship didn't stand in your way. Gives me hope. I'm very glad you made it to such an advanced stage in your search. I wish you the best with the remaining steps of settling in. As for me I am not discouraged one bit (Ok I was after the phone call). I want this and I will do whatever I can to have it. This is not specific to Dubai or Dublin or any city, it's my general attitude in life.

Success Samy

You're a real fighter aren't you Face? :scared: You know this moron is still in Europe, maybe I should drive over to where he is and make a scene at his company Naah....I will let it go this time..........I think I will invest my energy in my search and not waste it on some looser. Like your attitude though

Never be sad about being a nice person Adan and never be tempted to sink to other people's levels either. Rise above it and move on is the best thing to do.

I am a firm believer that eventually, everyone gets what they deserve. So stay nice!

I still can't give you any more, that's why!!! Just tried again, but I'm obviously too selective in who I give to.

Anyway, it's the thought that counts.
