Should I Pull Whatever's Left of My Hair Out of My Head
God work was hectic today! I got there at 6:45 and for the first time my manager was there at 7! Ever since he showed up it was non-stop running around! I'm leaving to Saudi Arabia on Saturday for a business trip and I worked real hard for the last 2 months to get everything prepared! I was working with the hopes that the "Arab" mindset will not come into play but unfortunately it did!

What's the "Arab" mindset well, that's when Arabs postpone work till the last second causing everyone to be late and/or delegating work to be done by other Arabs who in turn procrastinate or leave to go on a mission/trip without taking care of their work! Each firm attending the meeting was supposed to give us all the paperwork that will be discussed 2 weeks before the meeting! Today we received documents from an Arab nation in Africa and from a firm here in Kuwait! This means that we have to run 30 new copies of a files worth of papers! We are looking at a stack of papers which is about 2 to 3 inches high! Keep in mind you have to multiply it by 30! What a waste of paper! Why couldn't we just put them on a CD!

The firm I work for has a 30 minute coffee/tea break that I didn't take advantage off well other than to cut and paste the results of today's quizzes that I took a few days ago! Not only that but I worked till 3 when in actually work ends at 2:15! Another thing is that I have to go into work tomorrow, on my weekend! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! One good thing is that we took care of pretty much everything except for getting the file copied 30 times! My manager, the technician in charge of the photo copy machine and binding and I will start work at 10! I just wish I get paid overtime!

JC sent me a msg about going out tonight and I gladly agrees! I wish "D" would be able to come out as well! I'd love to just see her and come back to reality! Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I think I'm senile right now due to being over-worked! For God's sake I didn't even get to read today's newspaper and I had to drink cold cup of tea!

    Question: I'm not sure but do most or all companies/firms/small businesses in Kuwait pay for overtime? or it doesn't exist?

    Some do depending on the firm! When I worked for an auditing firm we were paid overtime!

    Rampurple: You just figured it out? I've told you quite a few times! Asfor starting work well our offical starting time is 7:30 bt I'm a morning person so it's not a big deal for me to get there early! PLUS it makes a good impression! ;o) Pay is bad actually
    BTW Allah i3afeech!
