I have noticed a few new office supplies appearing on desks throughout the office building over the last few week. I figured I didn’t get on the list because I’ve only been here a short time.
Today one of the secretaries stopped by with a desk calendar, a day-timer, and an ink blotter.
They are very nice and I appreciate them greatly, but they are backwards and in arabic. They do have some numbers I can read, but I don’t read calendars or anything for that matter right to left. One more thing, they are organized according to the Muslim calendar, so the months I am used to are broken up in sections.
Ohh, the joys of working overseas.
