Default Annual Whinge

Well, it is that time of year again - annual leave is just around the corner and I have list.

1 - Why does nobody out here realise that substituting a decent professional administrator from the west for 15 indians will get more done and be much cheaper?

2 - Do GCC nationals think we will forget what they agreed to do yesterday - and why are they given senior jobs they cannot do?

3 - Why can the Lebanese and Turkish people not attend any meeting without arguing among themselves for 75% of it?

4 - Why do HR departments not understand we are their customer and bahave like they are doing us a favour by responding.

5 - Why do HSBC keep losing cheques I deposit?

6 - Why do the car hire companies only seem to have a nissan sunny available and then want 500 us dollars a month for one with dents in it and sweat stained seats?

7 - Why is there no decent supermarket in Doha. Surely a Tesco would make a killing?

8 - Why do I pay 40,000 us dollars a years for an average place to live?

9 - Why does my internet keeping going off?

10 - Why do you have to do everything in person - why not by phone?

Are you serious??

Car hire deals have never been better - I hired one a while back and they practically gave it away (this was in Bahrain); haggling the price down was boringly easy ("I'm only willing to pay half of that rate" "OK sir no problem").
