The living end - in Dubai

So this is what I read today in my "all time favorite  letters page in a newpaper" :

Mind Boggling?

In case you think I am making this up below is the link.

Worried from Barsha.....

Please, please, all things right in the world let this be a prank letter. But this is Dubai so you just never know.

I know just how she feels. Gone is my personal towel-folder, my in-house rug-comber and the funny little man with no teeth whom I employed to pull the weeds and oxalis out of all my potted plants. I'm really not sure how long it's going to take me to re-adjust…

Thank you Frances! I can always rely on you for some quirky humor. You were being humorous right?

Things are bad here now!! I now have to stock my own fridge with beer myself.
That is why I now just go down to a pub in a nearby hotel and pay 42 Dirhams (7 quid) a pint.

Anything but stock my own fridge...

Curly, What next I ask you? If this keeps up you will be forsed to move into a hotel.Oh hang oh you spend most of you time in hotels already. I don't know how you cope. Your job is so demanding. Your life is so hard. I will cook you a home cooked meal when you are in Dubai for more than a couple of days..... Oh hang on let me check if I can borrow my neighbours maid to do the cooking first.......
