Did you ever think you would come to work someday and find everyone in one same mood..... PISSED OFF?!?!?! Today the bank is full of very very pissed off people. Apparently, most employees had made plans and bought tickets to travel out tonight or tomorrow and come back on the 28th as all banks in Kuwait were supposed to be off for 9 days, and a circular was passed enforcing this decision a few days ago. However, yesterday was a slap across the face for all bank employees as all banks took a new decision by reinforcing Sunday and Thursday as working days. Many employees simply thought of not showing up anyway, but the Human Resources department warned that if anyone leaves the country and brings back some sick leave note, they will be given a warning, and that is definitely not a good mark on your file. So today everyone is in a shit mood and standing in line to get their leave papers signed by my boss, but he also is refusing most. Luckily, my residence papers were not completed so I could not leave the country and was planning on staying here anyway. As far as I'm concerned, I'm glad they shortened the vacation cos I was actually worried about what the hell am I gonna do during a 9 day vacation in Kuwait!?!? Anyway, good luck to all my fellow employees whose vacations got ruined!
