Coming to Work

iopenI have this tendency to arrive late to work. Which I dont think people mind that much. But I developed this tendency from working in the states. When your an engineer and working in the states they pretty much dont care what time you show up as long as you finish your projects on time, and you showed up to the update meetings. And that was pretty much it.

Also if you have to finish the project they expect you to show up on the weekends. Which doesnt happen too often, but that depends on the company you worked for. Another thing I enjoyed was coming to work in casual wear. There was one guy in our department who used to wear his pajamas at work, but I didnt know if he came to work like that because he arrived before me and left after. At least thats what I think he did! lol

But working in Kuwait is a little different. They rarely want to delegate work for some reason. Things always has to be centrelized, which drives me nuts. Since Im good at what I do I managed to get the message across that I dont show up to meetings which are a waste of my time, and I dont want to sit down and drink tea. I want to finish my work and leave! lol. And I can show up late since things dont pile up until later in the day. And traffic is horrible! So I try to come and go at odd times!

But right now Im posting because its just one of those slooowwww day, and weather is so nice I have my window open. I can hear a helicopter flying around. Sidenote I would never work for NBK the hours are horrible, and the pay is even worse. Some people might be happy about the work experience, but I will stick to being an engineer for a while. The one thing that annoys me though is having to come for a half day on thursday! Just drives me nuts! lol
