Last weekend(not the one which came a couple of days back)



This stupid thing happened last weekend. Here, in Bahrain, we have weekends on Friday and Saturday as Friday is supposed to be a public holiday in this part of the world just like Sunday in the rest of the world. Most of the time, we don’t work on weekends but last weekend, I decided to work from office on Saturday as I’ve to meet a deadline. I decided to leave at 10 AM and return back by 1 PM or so.
On the previous day, I’ve informed the General Services section (who looks after the transport) to arrange me a car at my house by 10 AM on Saturday. Being a bit cautious, on Saturday, I’ve called up the drivers’ extension at 9 30 AM and informed them I’ll be standing at a hotel near my flat. But the driver asked me to come to the main road and wait at a bus-stop as the traffic will be a bit heavy in my street. I waited till 10 45 AM but still there’s no sign of the driver. Then I called up the drivers’ extension but no one’s answering the phone. After some time, someone answered and was, literally, shouting on me. I asked him to cool down and asked him what the matter was. It turned out that the person who answered my call in the morning was not the guy who came for me and this plan of change of pickup point is not informed to him. Somehow, I convinced the guy to come again for me.
By the time I reached office, it was already 11 45AM. Then I was stopped at the security gate saying that they didn’t receive any intimation about my visit on weekend. I was taken back by this. How can they send a car for me and fail to intimate the security gate? Somehow, I got into the office and it was at 12 30AM when I switched on my PC.
I had to work till 4 PM to finish off the issue and this was the way my last weekend was f@#$ed up.
