We get Thursday and Sunday - which should mean all of Tecom get those days.

You know what? When I came here (almost) five years ago we got 2 or 3 days off all over the place. But not now, the mystery man who looks at the moon somehow happens to think that ALL holidays land over a weekend.

What a crock of shit. Dubai is a muslim country but we get miles less than Kuwait, Saudi etc

But surely this makes you happy in a perverse way, as it gives you something else to moan about?
