Course & Load

No time to work this week, and no time to rest. This is the first time I have had a course in Kuwait, and I think it will be the last time I have a course in Kuwait. The course is a simple 3 Day financial management course meant for non-financial people, even though their were some financial people. My phone wouldn’t stop ringing while I’m in the course, every 10 to 20 minutes I would get a phone call, and nobody would call unless something was very wrong. Then you would spend 5 to 10 minutes on the phone sorting things out, then you go back and keep thinking about it. Couldn’t fully concentrate on the class, but I winged a few things which was funny. The course was held at Court Yard Marriot so at least there were a few places to eat during the lunch break unlike the usual Shuweikh choices.

I haven’t been in a class room environment in over 3 years, its a bit of a funny feeling. I remembered all the idiots that drove me nuts in the classes with their dumb questions, it was the same case here. At the beginning of the day it was simple enough, and they were just an annoyance, but as the day passed by it got more annoying to the point I want to beat them like a piñata and just wait for the damn candy to come out. It was three days of hell since I had to handle the course as well as the work, my emails piled up and it was annoying to even look at them. Next time, course will be outside of Kuwait, if I could it would be outside the Middle East.

    I sooo understand what you mean. Idiots drive me crazy. They should know that asking a ton of stupid questions will not make them smarter, only more annoying. A 3 day class where people are at different levels intellectually could be considered torture.

  7. Oh well, what can you do. If your job demands it that you just have to suck it up and just go for it. It sucks I know but just like they say “7ekmel 8awi 3al ‘9a3eef”. Best of luck.
