Getting paid to sit around

I have been here over 6 weeks now and have only worked the 1 observation shift I wrote about in my last entry.  The good news is I am salary and have been getting paid regardless. For some reason it takes people a long time to process in here, in addition to that I got here during Ramadan and Eid holidays. As cool as the concept is of getting paid to sit around, its pretty boring and I hope to hit the streets again soon. I hope to have more exciting news to update everyone on soon. until then......


  1. Hello there, Welcome to Saudi Arabia! I wish I could have your job (the 'getting paid to sit around' part only).

    BTW, I'm Pepe Cabrera, from the Philippines, now in Jeddah, I'm a Visual Merchandiser here. Nice blog. God bless!

  2. This is the first time I've seen bureaucracy actually benefit some one. Good job!
