With the sun setting on another silly season, what has made you stop, look to the heavens and shake your head this Ramadan??

The midnight meeting request for an absolutely genuine full on business meeting. No I did not go. Clients like that I can do without

Every year I await the news stories about people admitted to hospital for over eating. It's only truly Ramadan in the GCC when that happens.

I have also been amused by the amount of billboards advertising food especially for Ramadan. Crappy McDonald's burger for iftar anyone?

I think the phone call I got from Etisalat's customer complaints department at 00:16 last night was a good one. It was like it was just a normal day for them.

Got a nice one from the ROP thanking me for 'abiding by the speed limit' and wishing me "Eid Mubarak". Guess I don't have any fines, then ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž

Driving at speeds lower than the speed limit probably has something to do with it

A silly season!!!.. how typical. This is just the impression of those who canโ€™t see beyond their body needs, which actually deserves a pity from me for the miserable state of existence they are in!!
